Beach Day Saturday

Due to our rather wet and cool weather there haven't been a lot of days that would qualify as a "beach day." But last Saturday (July 4th!) looked pretty good so I went to Port Bruce with 2 friends. Being near water and listening to the waves crash onto the shore (it was really windy) was very calming I found.  

The water was still pretty cold so I stayed in my beach chair and read a Sue Grafton detective novel in between eating BACON-flavoured chips and egg salad sandwiches! One of my friends NEVER goes to the beach without egg salad sandwiches - a practice developed during her childhood so we always eat well at the beach.

Both the sky and the lake were busy...

Well, not in this particular photo...

But here...
 And here...

It was a hazy kind of day and the wind was cool but people were still getting sunburned so after enjoying the sun for a bit I sat under my umbrella. I'm no longer interested in roasting my skin. WHITE is in! Well, not really, but it is for me:) Actually I have bicycle tan hands - tanned down to the first knuckle then ghostly white fingers!

Health update: I think the medications that I'm back on are having a positive effect though it's still early days. The feelings of anxiety are gradually lessening and for that I am very thankful. The back pain has also decreased so I am back riding my hike and I hiked twice last week. So overall things are looking up. When I finally write a sarcastic post you'll know I'm back to being myself!


  1. I hope you get to write that sarcastic post very soon! ;-)

  2. The sound of waves crashing is the balm that soothes my soul! Happy to hear you feel the meds are pushing you in the right direction. Looking forward to a sarcastic post :)

    We have sunshine but it is hard to see based on the huge amount of forest fire smoke covering all of the west coast. You can look directly at the sun and just see the outline of it - looks like a cloudy day otherwise. Glad you are feeling a bit better - can't wait for the Sarcasm!!!

  4. Sarcasm is good for the soul!

    PS I use the heat pack mostly to relax my muscles,and it's comforting. The cold I used when I thought I'd pulled a muscle (!!)

    Glad you had a nice day!

  6. Never heard of bike hands before, sounds like something from a zombie movie.
    Take care and I hope you feel better my friend.
