Beach babies!

Well not really 'babies' at all but definitely the beach!  The last week has been beautiful weather-wise, so I thought I'd take full advantage of the empty beach before people head to the coast for Semana Santa.

My two little Elfdoll Monnaemi Sisters (14cm tall), who I call Sunny Song and Minx, wanted to take their horse to the beach and ride him in the edge of the surf.  The waves were a bit too choppy for them to get too close to the water but they enjoyed taking their 'magical' horse for a trot along the sand.  Magical?  Well if you look at my photos you might spot one glaring error on my part!  The horse doesn't have any footprints!  LOL!  Oh well, next time!!






The girls did have one little 'mishap', a wave came further up the beach than I anticipated.....


Fortunately no harm done, just a bit wet....and they soon dried off on the sand!


Two other little girls wanted to join us on the sand, my Fairyland Little Fee Antes, Fiona (normal skin) and Tyrone (tanned).  They were a little disappointed that they couldn't go in swimming but it really was a bit rough and they are not strong swimmers! ;)




I hope you've enjoyed seeing the girls at the beach, and that you're all having a lovely weekend.  I hope the week ahead, leading up to Easter, is a great one for you :)

Big hugs Sharon x

  3. You are so lucky to live by the beach! What great photos of your girls!
    Love the ones on the horse look so realistic riding on the sands.
    and the other two watching the waves and the wind in their hair just wonderful and you getting out there in public with the dolls snapping away, well done! :) xxx

    1. I am indeed really lucky Dee, I love to be so close and to actually be able to see the sea from my lounge window. Thanks for your lovely comments, I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. I admit that it wasn't very 'public' though because there wasn't anyone around to see us!!!!

  5. They certainly had some adventures on the beach - it wouldn't be right if they didn't get a bit sandy! Fairy horse - brilliant - it was hiding its wings well (think of it as Strawberry/Fledge the flying horse from Narnia).

    1. You got it spot on Anna, the horse is indeed one of those magical flying horses, like the one from Narnia!! Well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it.
      But yes, the girls did have fun at the beach and so did I!

  7. I'm in love with Tyrone! She's stunning. Nooooooooooo - not another search for a dolly! I must be good, I must be good, I must....

    Lovely photos, Sharon! I doubt the beach at Borth or Aberystwyth are as inviting as this in April.
    Keep the seaside photos coming to remind us all that summer is on the way.

    1. Isn't she gorgeous Jenni! I'm so happy with her new look. I loved her before but now even more so.
      Fortunately the beach is welcoming most of the year here, I'm very lucky. Thanks Jen!

  8. I love the scale of that horse with that pair. Such a great prop! I'm glad they all survived their dip in the water. :)

    1. Thanks very much JS. The horse was a very good find, it came with lots of odds and ends like broom and bucket for cleaning out the stables! And it was really quite cheap too!
      And yes, no ill effects from their drenching!

  9. Beautiful beach photos of your delightful little dolls. They are so sweet and perfectly dressed. How much fun to see them take a tousle in the water...a beautiful place to be! I have always heard that "magical" horses leave no hoof prints. It's magic! ๐Ÿ’ xxx

    1. Thanks so much Ginger! And yes, I'm sure you're right, magic horses cannot leave hoof prints purely because they are magic!

  10. Natural landscape backgrounds such as these never fail to enhance our doll photos.
    Take it from me there is nothing so exhilarating or refreshing than horse riding on an empty stretch of beach close to the water's edge. (Hoping that there were no injuries sustained in the fall!)
    Love those two little ones exploring on those rocks and how the sea breeze caught and lifted their hair.

    1. They really do Kendal! I love to take natural photos but sometimes I am a coward as you know! But on this occasion it was lovely to have the beach almost entirely to myself.
      The girls love riding their horse on the shore, it is indeed exhilarating....as was their fall in the water! But no, no damage, only to their pride ;)
