Hunter, Playdates BEACH PLAYDATE @ SENTOSA 3 March 2012

It was a perfect, sunny day. The kind that you simply HAVE to go for a swim, or you’d be classified as clinically insane. And so down we went to Sentosa, bubs in arms ๐Ÿ™‚

We headed to Tanjong Beach Club, a little spot of paradise on the island. It wasn’t very crowded since it was a weekday (the hugeย benefit of being a SAHM!) so we settled in for a looooong lazy lunch and swim.

View from our lunch table

 

Burger & fries - verdict was that it was good but not excellent

 

Calamari - this was excellent. So crispy and loved the tartare sauce!

 

Quesadillas with spicy chorizo - simple and good

 

Me and my fish & chips. It was awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello little miss!

 

So prim and proper

 

Enjoying the view

 

We changed the kids into their swimmers and took them for a swim. Hunter LOVED the pool. It was such a warm day that it was almost like stepping into a bath! There’s also a ledge along the entire length of the pool that the kids could walk along, which they had great fun with. It’s actually the nicest pool for kids I’ve been to.. will def be back ๐Ÿ™‚

The huge lounge chairs are also great for sprawling yourself on, or for kids to sit and play on. They also serve complimentary jugs of iced water – how good is that?!

The lovely beach lounges

 

Chilling with our bubs

Not sure how he bashed his brow.. found him like that in the morning a couple of days ago!

 

Splish splash in the super warm pool

 

We also took the kids for a spin around the beach and ocean. Remember how Hunter reaalllyyyy didn’t like the beach/sand? Well, he was OK with it this time! He wasn’t adoring it, but he wasn’t having a meltdown either.

It was rather hilarious because when I sat him down (in the photo below), he’d look at his fingers and be so dismayed to see sand on them, and hold out his hands to me with a frantic look. So I washed off the sand with water.

Then, he spotted his feet that were ALSO covered in sand, and shot me another frantic look. This time, I just said “this is the BEACH, Hunter. There WILL be sand. You just gotta deal with it!” LOL.

3 kidlets on the beach

 

The area is simply perfectย for a playdate, we all unanimously agreed. It’s utterly EXHAUSTING looking after a young child and swimming with them etc, but it’s worth it because they really had SO much fun. Plus, it’s a great way to use up all their excess energy – Hunter totally zonked out in the car on the way home.

We all liked it so much we’re already planning our next visit there!

Communal bathing time ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

With his bottle, fresh & clean after a shower. THIS IS LIFE!!

    Definitely looks like paradise! Almost like being at a resort somewhere far away. (Oh wait. You ARE at a resort somewhere far away… from where I am, that is!) So much nicer than the snow and freezing rain we had today…

    Looks like you had so much fun… I wish I can get away to somewhere nice and warm too. Do you use a DSLR for your photos?
