The second day of the holiday we awoke to less mist, but not all that much sunshine. Though bright and warm, it was still pretty cloudy. Undeterred we all made our way to the beach for the morning, where me and Hannah’s dad spent most of the time we were there proving we didn’t really know how to relax.
Like me, Hannah’s dad runs his own company. Both of us, I don’t think he would begrudge me saying, find it quite hard to switch off from work for any extended stretch of time. I have particular issue when I first take a break; the first few days I tend to feel a need to keep myself occupied. David, it would seem is quite similar to me in that regard. Pretty much as soon as we got to the beach I went for a short walk with the camera…
But not wanting to leave the family for too long, I only went around the cliffs a bit. When I returned, Connie was making herself at home in the sand and suggested I join her in the building of a sand castle. Being next to a little stream, I decided this wasn’t quite enough of a challenge and decided to take it upon myself to build a bit of a moat. Before long, things had got way out of hand and me and David had taken over the whole affair and were building an epic dam. Whilst all this was going on, Hannah took a few photos of Connie (and the dam).
Later that day, since the weather wasn’t looking particularly great we decided upon a trip up to the very local Fun Park. It felt a little bit like something you might find as part of a set in an episode of something with Peter Kay in it, but it was, thankfully, as described, reasonably fun. Connie loved it anyway, and that’s what matters!
So that was day two… Just holiday snaps really…
All the photos were taken with the Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron. Thankfully, neither got any sand in them. The film was Portra 400, developed and scanned by UK Film Lab
