We’ve all heard of “beach days”, but I must admit I prefer “beach evenings”…like this one… My favourite time to visit the beach has got to be early evenings! I’m not much for the heat of midday or having to slather on the sunscreen. But an hour at the beach after supper, before bedtime is my cup ‘o tea! And that’s just how we spent this lovely Sunday evening…the kids doing cartwheels on the sand, ooo-ing and ahh-ing over every rock, every shell, and dodging the many stranded jellyfish. Little Mister doesn’t like the feel of the sand on his feet (yet!) so he spent the time in Mommy and Daddy’s arms, pointing at the waves and clapping his chubby little hands every time the surf came rolling in.
The evening was topped off with a chat with friends who just happened to be evening beach goers too…the kind of friends who are more like family and flood your heart with memories ’til it just might burst from the joyous nostalgia. Ahhhhhh, how I hated to leave! Do you have a favourite, family memory-making place you hate to tear yourself away from?
