Snapshot Round-up: Making the most of half-term

There’s an infectious vibe surrounding the half-term period. It’s wonderful to see the BritMums community really make the most of it whether having fun here or venturing overseas. 

Kicking off this month’s crop of photographic gorgeousness is The Boy And Me with this gem taken at Oxwich Bay. They absolutely picked the perfect day for a barbeque and sandcastles.

Also beach bound was Global Mouse. This time in Kingsbarns, Fife where their little artist got to work in the sand.

As for the Doves, we made the most of what we had. Heading over to the Isle of Wight, we took in a few of their best beaches and had the funnest time. Jumping off the promenade into the sand umpteen times was certainly one of the highlights!
