A shopping day for sure!

Every day so far has been a beach day, but we knew on the weekend that this would be a shopping day.  Why, you ask?


We woke up this morning to the wonderful sound of rain on the roof.  We didn't want to miss our morning 2 mile walk along the beach, so we donned our raincoats and off we went. I had my dri-fit running pants on so I was okay, but poor Wendell just had his regular shorts and was soaked to the skin!  It was fun though and we feel re-vitalized now!

We feel ready for a day of shopping now. There were a few people out walking as we walked towards the pier (they must have English blood!), but on our way back we literally had the beach to ourselves.  We had the same experience on Sunday night as we went out to sit on the beach at dusk.  So beautiful!

 Then we went back to the cottage to play "Settlers of Catan".  Our favourite game.

 Mind you, we do love lots of games.  Every year we come, we go to this little shop.

 They have the most amazing selection of games and we always pick something up.

Well, I'm off to have a smoothie for breakfast and then shower and get into some clean dry clothes!  Have a great day wherever you may be.


  1. Playing board games takes me back to my kids being smaller.My grandchildren arent old enough quite yet to play them but I used to love things like Monopoly and Cluedo.
    I love being by the beach and sea but its nice to have the odd shopping day too. Take care, love, Anne

  2. Our shopping day was a great success Anne! The temperature was very warm but there were a couple of very heavy downpours so we were glad we chose the day to shop. It's always good to have an excuse isn't it? Who am I kidding - I don't need any excuses!!
