Last year was such a nightmare with one ice storm after the other, that we feel we deserve the gentle Winter we're getting this year. We've had a couple of storms but the snow really hasn't lasted through the subsequent mild spells and rain.
I know there are those who long for snow, but I am quite happy with things as they are.
Today I couldn't decide if I was going to take Wendy and Sooki to Rainbow Haven or Conrad's Beach. I didn't know until I drove right past the turn off to Conrad's that I was going to Lawrencetown Beach instead.
There is a long parking lot behind Lawrencetown Beach and several boardwalks to choose from.
Or perhaps you'd rather walk on the grassy trail behind the beach ?
Well actually it's Wendy who prefers being close to the water, while Sooki would rather be a bit more out of the wind on the grassy trail.
I brought the throw stick and Wendy's bright orange ball. While she chased the ball, Sooki posed for a photo; well really she sat 'coz she knew she'd get a treat.
The boardwalks that lead to the beach are being "eaten" by rocks. I think this beach used to be much more sandy than it is now.
This boardwalk (below) had ramps rather than steps so that the disabled would be able to reach the beach.
Well. Ummmm. Errrrr.
The rocks have "eaten" the bottom of the ramp and even if they hadn't, because there's no sand there anymore there's no where for a wheelchair to go.
BTW we apparently have a "snow event" rolling in late tomorrow, so soon those Nova Scotians who are hankering for snow will soon get their wish.
Me? I can't wait for the NEXT thaw. lol
