Are you a winter beach goer or only a fair weathered friend of the beach?
I love the beach any time of year. What I love about the beach in winter is the solitude and the wind and briskness.
During the busy days last week when I was in Eden, I managed to get down to the beach for 15 minutes one afternoon. I thought the kids would want to run along the sand but it was so cold down at the beach and the wind was really whipping around and the kids refused to leave the warmth of the car... so I had some solitude on the beach.
This is Aislings beach - the main beach in town
I was accompanied by faithful puppy, Charlie! He had so much fun running around and sniffing everything. But he's so obedient that when I asked him to sit he, of course, sat and posed. Looking this way ...and that
I think he's wondering which is his best side?
Ok enough he's thinking - let me go play!
So who's with me? who loves the beach in winter?
How good is this sign? I think every beach town needs a sign like that. This one is directly outside our old house with it's fabulous views of the beach and bay.
