The public holiday weekend turned out to have exceptionally lovely weather so we decided to venture out to explore the coast. Having moved to the Peak District, this was our first time driving to meet the sea... something I've been longing to do for quite a while now! And the location of Formby Beach turned out ever so beautiful. Only the littlest of our family was brave enough to swim, though. There were quite many jellyfish too. The fresh sea air was just what I needed.
