Seashore versus Supermarket

We live in a lovely seaside town.  In Estate Agent speak it's a 'desirable location'.  Turn left at the end of our road and in two minutes you are at the local supermarket.  Turn right at the end of our road and in two minutes you are on one of the longest golden sand beaches in Devon.  This sounds idyllic until you have to do a big grocery shop on a sunny day.

I start out armed with a shopping list, coupons, eco-friendly shopping bags and a steely determination to re-stock our depleted cupboards.  Then it all goes horribly wrong.  A the end of our road I turn right!

I blame the dogs!


There are always dogs playing on the beach.  Their joy is infectious as you watch them dashing into the sea, playing fetch with their masters or simply digging great holes in the soft sand.  There is no way to resist .... you have to smile...and watch.... and forget about the supermarket.


I suppose I can buy some milk at the corner shop, eat another omelet, and try again tomorrow. Let's hope it's not so warm and sunny!

    1. Hiya Sara! I am really glad you like my blog. It's so much fun for me too. Sometimes I see the same dogs at the beach but there are so many playing on the sand that you get confused! It doesn't matter because they are all so cute and funny. I'll post more photos of the dogs soon! Big hugs.... Aunt Deb X
