Drone Testing and Seashell Collecting!

The weather has been beautiful here today and it really feels like Spring is on it's way. My husband finished work early so we decided to make the most of the nice weather and head out to our local park with Elliot...and a new drone!

My husband Paul was lucky enough to attend the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show in January, which is the biggest of it's kind in the world. He saw all kinds of new innovative technology but it was unmanned vehicles/drones that really caught his eye. Paul owns two computer/gadget shops (The Laptop Fixers) in our local area Poole and he couldn't wait to get his hands on some drones to sell in the shop....and test out! 

The drone Paul was testing (Parrot Bebop Drone) has an onboard camera and you can even control it using your smartphone or tablet! It took some amazing pictures and video of our local park...

Whilst Paul was playing with his new toy, Elliot was having fun down on the beach collecting seashells and seeing how far he could throw them. It was such a simple thing but he was having so much fun and in a little world of his own! He was even brave enough to paddle into the water, thank goodness for wellies!

We spent many a school holiday down on this beach when we were kids and I have very fond memories of swimming and splashing about with my sisters and cousins. Yesterday wasn't quite swimming weather but the sea looked so clear!

We are so lucky to have this beautiful coastline right on our doorstep!

  1. Hi,
    Come and get free moving images for blog.
    Have a nice week.

  2. How exciting, I wouldn't mind one of those drones for myself. It looks like Elliot is having a great time exploring the beach searching for seashells, and the first dip of the season? The hat and coat are soon not going to be needed for a walk on the beach though! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

    1. Oh yes, won't be long before it will shorts and tshirts! x
