Curious Little Explorers

From cooling off in the woods, to petty furry friends, to exploring meadows, to making wishes on dandelions; these photos all tell a story of childhood fun and show off what our hashtag is about.

My favourite photo from my own feed this week is this photo of Evie building sandcastles on the beach. I seriously love where we live and am always so grateful that we have this place on our doorstep for Evie to play on.

My favourite photo from Alice’s feed this week is this one of Amelia getting ready to explore some fields. I’m seriously jealous of the sunshine and can’t believe that I always get wardrobe envy of this cute little tot. How adorable is her outfit?

Our first featured image is by the lovely: @sylwia0326. This photo is simply gorgeous. It looks like such a peaceful place to cool off from the sun and for little toes to explore. What a beautiful capture!

Our second featured image is by: @jaimehoughphoto. Childhood friends come in all shapes and sizes. There is no greater friend than a pony. How sweet is this photo? A little horse whisperer in the making!

Our third featured image is by: @theordinarylovely. The summer sun looks so beautiful in this picture. He’s certainly making the most of the weekend in the meadows! I wish we had this sunshine in Cornwall.

Our final featured image is by: @megannrobinsonphoto. What a great capture! This is such an enchanting picture. Making wishes on dandelions is a favourite pastime of mine from when I was little. There is nothing more magical than childhood imagination.

    No, I haven’t. But I’ve seen some photos and have noticed the hashtag. Would love to join too, maybe when the holidays start, haven’t done much outdoor stuff lately. I’m missing it!
