A Beach Weekend

We have had a crazy heatwave here over the last couple of weeks. Last week it really peaked with even the nights being in the 20's. So how do you get a little respite when you have no airconditioning in the house?

Well other than crashing at my parents house a couple of times, we hit up the beach this weekend.

Saturday night we went to Torquay for frozen yogurt and to dip Hugo's toes in the water for the first time. The tide was in and night was falling, so the water was pretty chilly. Hugo wasn't too impressed.
On Sunday we went down mid afternoon when it was warmer and the tide was out. Cozy Corner beach gets a fabulous shallow pool when the tide is out that is perfect for kids to paddle around in, and was perfect to try dipping Hugo into again.

Round two went a little better. I was able to kneel down near a shallow puddle in the sand and he kicked his toes around for a little while.
I'm so looking forward to next summer and being able to go to the beach a lot more, knowing Hugo will be able to play more in the sand and the water. I love the beach and we are so blessed to have some beautiful beaches a 20 minute drive from our house.
