13-04-18 Queens Park ➡ Beach

Friday 13th April 2018

From 9:30 till 1:30 the Hartleys are playing at Queens Park with the Dutchie cousins. There’s hardly any actual interactions (save for Kingsley feeding Tilly seaweed crackers) between harried adults and manic kids. Not even time/energy for one photo of them. However when he’s alone Kingsley makes pals in the sand pit with Jethro. They share the lot: implements, bottles, banana, apples, crackers…

By 2:30 we’re in different states of dress. Beachside with Scott & Greg. Water is fresh and we must cut a path through the seaweed in the shallows. First time Kingsley eats an apple with peel still on!

By the evening Kingsley is salty and exhausted though finds the energy to climb the giant bench and make friends with the 8 year old licking her ice cream. His desire to try the icecream were fully blocked by the girl however she agreed to his cuddles…
