Iris and Arthur’s cousins are visiting this week, something they have been looking forward to for ages. We were spoilt with the weather today so have spent all day outdoors tiring them all out. This morning was mainly spent in the garden with Mum and I planting up part of the border with Kester while the others went into the field and rigged up a tyre swing using a tyre and some rope we picked up during the beach litter pick last week. I didn’t get chance to take pictures of that but in the afternoon we headed to the beach.

As you can tell from the photos, Iris and Ellie have been near inseparable since Ellie and Jack arrived yesterday. In fact, I don’t think they have stopped talking except for the odd break to eat!

Jack and Arthur have slightly less in common, although they discovered a shared fascination with rock pools this afternoon. Jack had great fun climbing the ruins and looking for anenomes and starfish, while the girls paddled, drew on the sand and played in the tent. We also gave the kite an airing and then popped into Cream O Galloway for an ice cream. Tomorrow’s plans include red deer spotting and a trip to Kirroughtree.

Finally, I wanted to show off this photo which Jack took of the starfish he and his Granddad found under a rock. Very cool and tiny too!
