While others may long for sweltering days at the beach, I long for comfortable walking days. So that's what we did yesterday.
We explored a couple of beaches.
First stop was the West Lawrencetown Beach.
The beach here is marvellously wide and the water shallow at low tide.
We climbed that nearby hill to get a better view.
Usually near the shore, insects are not a problem as the constant wind blows them away. Sadly, that was not the case. The recent very wet weather, immediately followed by a heat wave, has brought on a mosquito population boom,
and the breeze was too slight to defer them. Of course, none of this bothered Wendy and Trey.
They were happy to bound up and down the steep hill after the ball, until they both were tired.
After wandering (and swatting) my way around the hill. we headed for a different beach.
Fisherman's Reserve was another five minutes down the road.
As you can see, the weather was deteriorating. A light rain began to fall.
The dogs quickly discovered it was low tide, and they could run wherever they wanted.
Those dogs have no idea how lucky they are: but I do.
