We don't get much summertime in England, so as soon as we got a bit of sunshine in June, we, like most Brits, grabbed the opportunity and headed down to the beach before it was too late! We took six sporty young men with us to take some fun photographs for the calendar. Warm spell doesn't quite do the weather justice. It was boiling! So the lads really enjoyed splashing around in the refreshing sea, even if it was a bit cold at first. Some of them really got a fright when a wave splashed them in the wrong places, and things were certainly prone to shrinking in the water...!
We picked a secluded part of the beach (well, secluded-ish - every so often there was a mad rush for cover!) and got down to taking some pictures.
There were some mishaps, you could say. Cameron really struggled with his hand stand (bless him) and had to be taught by the other guys. Jack managed to fall over when jumping to catch a ball in the dunes. Alex splashes like a girl and Jack's obviously been accused of putting on a few pounds because the guys dropped him when posing for a photo! Oh, and Amber, our dog kept running into shots.
But there were some moments of pure imagination from our lads that would keep the best artists on their toes. Seaweed to keep the boys' modesty was inspired (thanks Cameron!) and we're sure nobody has used a frisbee, sorry, a novelty flying disc - as a steering wheel before.
We all had a great time making this calendar, and hopefully you'll enjoy it every month of the year! And to top it all off, we've got a bonus video of behind the scenes which comes with your purchase. It's a great watch and bound to make you laugh.
