Cooling off at the seaside

We are certainly hitting records here and we have had the hottest days of the year this week when the temperature has reached  in excess of 33c. At the weekend we had a wonderful day at the beach with my daughter and her family. We took their kayak out on the sea and had such fun.
 Daisy made more sandcastles
 Ice cream was eaten
 sand was eaten šŸ˜Š
legs got buried

and I even went out on the kayak...I took a soaking but luckily the water was like bath water and there is no video evidence..I even managed to keep my sunglasses on!

Such a happy family day and such happy memories you think I love my grandbabies just a little bit?
Today's card is inspired by our beach day and is for sale now at Dotty's Teahouse, Carshalton High St, SM5 2AE The stamp is Stampendous and the backgroud a mix of blue distress inks. I highlighted the image with Prismacolor pencils.
Here's a close up
