Our family never tires of going to the beach. So whether it’s summer or winter, we visit our local beach as much as we can.
We love the beach because …
1. The girls love bringing their pail and shovels and digging up some fun while the tide is out and we’re able to walk along the sand.
2. I love the beach for it’s beautiful photo taking opportunities.
3. I love all the little shops and restaurants along the water that serve up really good food. My favourite is the fish and chips we get from a little place called Moby Dicks and the hot wings we treat ourselves to from another place called Wings.
4. I love the memories we make at the beach.
Lucky for me, the girls are always willing to pose for pictures. This photo was taken underneath a dock and comes with an inside story. We had a little run in with dog poop which, without us knowing, ended up on the back side of Little B’s jacket and on the sleeve on my new down coat. Needless to say, our little beach trip was cut short because of the poop but we managed to get in enough beach fun to hold us over until the next time.
The girls and I are hoping that the next time we partake in a beach afternoon, we can do so without warm coats and hats. In our corner of the world, the ground hog didn’t see his shadow when he emerged from his home. So if folk prediction is accurate, Spring will arrive early this year.
Folk prediction or superstition – I’m going with it.
Spring can come tomorrow.
I won’t mind at all.
