June 13th: Darling little Charlie's birthday. We had some presents in the afternoon. We were going to drive to the cliffs but it rained for an hour just as we were going, so we played very happily in the house. It was a very quiet but I think and hope a happy one in a quiet way for him.He used to go for walks by the seashore in Wicklow - there was water only a couple of hundred yards from his home, but for real playing in the sand the favoured spot was The Silver Sands, a little south of the town. There the beach consisted of very fine sand, ideal for making sandcastles.
