So our week at the beach turned out.....COLD. We had ONE day of really nice beach weather and the rest.....not so much. Did we make the most of it? Hell yeah we did. And we had a blast.
Yesterday, our last day, was butt cold but we decided we HAD to go to the beach and soak it up (before the massive rainfall a few hours later!). Let me tell you.....this beach was EMPTY except for a lone biker now and then.
Our umbrella and chairs were the only ones in sight. The wind beat at us and tangled our curls. The chill cut right to the bone (and I had on three layers!). The girls (and Alain) built a sandcastle with a long gully that led down to the ocean.
After dropping Alain and the kids at the beach, I went to the store to pick up some coffees for Alain and I. While there, I passed by the Krispy Kreme display and noticed the bags of mini white powdered donuts. Well, you have no idea how much white powdered donuts remind me of going to the beach with my family when I was little. My Dad always bought them. Isn't it amazing what sticks with you? Of course I picked up a bag, purchased it and took it the beach to surprise the girls. And surprised they were! It occurred to me that maybe they've never eaten white powdered donuts. They went NUTS. Especially Clara. She seriously ate about 1/2 the bag by herself. She didn't want to share with anybody else.
There we sat, all cuddled up under the umbrella, eating white powdered donuts. In the freezing cold. On an empty beach. And it was pure bliss!
Just for fun......we took these few pictures for you, Dad.....hope you like them!!!
We're back home now but already missing the beach. Cold weather and all.
