just for awhile.
- ice the last few days
- snow is coming this afternoon
- rain will fall later on in the evening (a spring-like sign although messy)
I’m slightly weather weary,
a state of mind common to Islanders around this time of year.
What’s a girl to do?
How do you lift your spirits when you are enduring what seems to be the never-ending winter?
Go to the beach with your beach buddy, of course.
And since it’s the day for Friday Fave 5, we’re taking you too.
1. Here we are, on an Island beach during the first week of March.
Maybe not the typical image you imagine when you think of a beach scene.
But as I mentioned in my title, indulge me.
2. You need to dress a little differently for this beach excursion.
As you can tell. modesty is not an issue.
Sunglasses are a must – sun on snow can be blinding.
Ski poles help test the snow depth and apparently intensify the exercise effort.
So bring them along.
And don’t forget your camera of course.
3. Take a walk along the beach
or on the water.
It’s kind of hard to tell the difference.
4. See what you can discover
In a world of white and blue, that can be a challenge.
But if you look a little more intently, you may be surprised to see what you find.
Crimson berries against pristine white and brilliant blue.
5. Sunbathe – don’t forget some sunscreen for your face.
The sun really can get warm.
As you can tell by the unzipped jacket.
Ah . . .
it does the heart good to get outside in the freezing invigorating air 🙂
And lest you might be tempted to feel slightly sorry for us Northerners,
fast forward a mere month and this is where you’ll find me.
I’m always amazed by the seasonal transformation on Prince Edward Island.
In just 3 short months,
I’ll be taking quite a different walk.
And there will be no more “walking on water”
Now that’s a happy thought.
Have a wonderful weekend!
