It was Max’s 7th birthday today. As a treat I took him down to the beach at Hamworthy in the morning (Jez stayed in bed). We had some sun and some cloud, but as you can see it was very breezy.
Max was a really happy boy though.
There were even more jellyfish washed up along the beach today. I think they were a mixture of blue jellyfish…
And the smaller compass jellyfish.
Walking around Ham Common I came across the first ripe blackberries of the year.
There were also hundreds of Common Red Soldier Beetles on both the cow parsley and the ragwort.
In the afternoon we had presents, although Max was more interested in his chew.
Here’s a nice photo of the birthday boy.
Just before he tried to chew the ear off his new toy.
And of course Jez had to get in on the act as well.
But it was all too exhausting for Max.
Until the cakes appeared though – at which point he woke up again!
I hope he enjoyed his birthday.
A year ago today
It was, of course, Max’s 6th birthday, and here he is with his cakes.
