The beach briefly
We decided to have a quick, overnight, trip to the beach on Wednesday. The weather was inclement for some of the trip but who cares. The beach and lake are fun no matter. You get wet anyway.
The weather did fine up and lots of sunscreen was on order because boy is the sun powerful. Burns in minutes. I think I prefer the summer sun in the UK than here at home. Much kinder.
I'm tired today. Getting too old to have such lightning trips.We need a day or two to relax and recover from the driving.
I've always been a fan of shells and rock pools and nature in general really. I haven't always been a fan of sand under my feet but I like it now.
And what a bonus. A rescue plant came home with me. Of course my son knows me well enough (probably anyone could guess though) that if there is a plant that needs a good home rather than a trip to the landfill, then it has my name on it. A lovely Norfolk Island Pine past its Christmas tree prime so here it is ready for a trim and a new home in the ground where it can stretch out some. Fingers crossed it likes it here.
