When we first decided to build our house, one of the things that drew me to this location was the fact that there is a coastline and beach just 5 minutes drive from the house site. And yet, we moved in and somehow just never made it to the beach! At first we didn’t have a car, and it really is just that little bit too far to walk. Then we got a car… but it was winter… and life settled into a routine… and we just never got around to it.
A few weeks ago I decided I really needed to check out this local beach! So Scarlett and I popped down for a quick little visit. It’s gorgeous!! Fairly secluded and quiet but totally stunning, it felt like being on holiday and it was less than 5 minutes drive from our house!
As soon as we got over the sand dune, Scarlett started pointing at the ocean and emiting her little interested noises “ah! ah!” I put her on the sand and she started racing off towards the water! I didn’t let her go in this time because I wanted to go to the shops afterwards, but we definitely have to head back there soon with togs and towel and let her go for it in the wet sand.
