Jason and I love the beach and it was really hard in the beginning when Ethan was scared of being there and all he ever did was eat the sand. But after a few visits Ethan has started to enjoy being there! It's taken a few visits but we are getting there! The turning point came when we spent a bit of time getting Ethan into his normal swimming routine (as we would at his lessons) but then we had a swim at the beach! He really enjoyed that swim and I think he is way more comfortable at the beach now!
Unfortunately it is now too cold to keep swimming at the beach, but we will keep visiting over the winter so that once summer comes we can really enjoy the stunning beaches that are on offer in Perth!
