We were the first ones to arrive..Semangat gitu!
My kids always wanted to go to the beach and play with the sand, swim, have picnics, whatever it is really you can do that's beach-related. So off we wet to Brittas Bay which is a 45-minute to an hour's drive to the south of Wicklow.
Check out this almost Hollywood movie-type pic!
As we knew that it was going to be a nice, sunny day, we knew that everyone will be heading to the same place so my hubby decided to leave the house early in the morning. Hokay, 8 to be exact. Woot...woot... semangat nak berenang.
My hubby and my daughter's activities for the day
To be honest, I'm actually not a beach person. I like to go to the beach but not to swim or play with the water. I just like lying on a mat not too near to the water looking at my kids enjoying God's creation. Well, I just don't like sand sticking on my feet and my body getting wet.
Budak kecik nie sgt seronok main, golek-golek dan makan pasir
We burried Acu Nani in the sand pastu pijak-pijak atas Acu...
So there I was, a typical Malaysian heading for cover inside my pop-up tent, waiting for my kids and my other half to finish enjoying themselves while I just stuffed myself with the food my friend and I brought along.
I stayed at that same spot from the time we arrived until end of the day.. heheh
Back to the beach we went to. It's not like the beaches we have back home in Malaysia with all the facilties and all the artificial stuff around the area. It's just a really nice plain and natural place. You'd be surprise how more enjoyful it'd be without all the modern nonsense around.
Poor Abang Husayn. He was so keen to build his sand castle, he brought the sea to him. Bucket by bucket!
Bibik of the day!! heheh
Eventually, I surrendered though. Five minutess before we went home I decided to let my feet touch the sea water. As my husband said, I'd been wasting my time if didn't try it. Errgggh...OKlah... Despite it being very hot and not windy at all, the water was so coldddddddddddddddddd!!!
Just to prove that I was in the water! Xleh pakai sunglasses mcm org lain psl malas pakai contact lenses.. so nampak cam makcik
