Little Picket Fence

All between us and the great Atlantic Ocean appears to be a little picket fence. Well that, the dunes and the beach of course. It is not really sufficient to hold back mother nature and all that she has to blow our way, but the fence is enough to keep our children contained and entertained in the garden between the rainstorms and the wind over the last few days!

Yesterday, we finally got to venture down to the beach for an hour, though it was cut short with the falling in the sea of 5 out of the 7 children. Everyone was freezing, what with their Wellington boots completely filled with icy cold water.

Lunch was a slightly more sedate affair with a whole side of salmon, sautéed peppers and steamed asparagus. A great low carb trio as our friends are also ‘low carb connoisseurs’. I am thinking of again reducing my intake as from next week. But for now, a holiday is a holiday, is it not?

John went out this morning to get some work done and make several phone calls as it was proving impossible to achieve this at the holiday house. We are blessed with an amazing view as you can see in today’s photographs, however the internal ‘decibels’ can impede ones concentration somewhat.

  1. Wow! That is a beautiful view you have!
    I love to be by the ocean and miss it. (I grew up with Northumberland Strait (Nova Scotia) almost in my back yard, all I had to do was run down a field and there I was at the beach,)
    Lunch sounds perfect!
    Enjoy every moment on holiday with your family 🙂

    1. A wonderful comment Margie – thank you so much. The Childhood memory you shared sounds very special. Always something to treasure for you within that memory. And here I am today sharing that very same ocean with your very special memory across the span of these short years. The Atlantic Ocean is pretty ‘bad ass’ in its magnitude, strength and constant persistence!
