Because the forecast said there would be a high of 76 degrees, I thought it would be a good idea to go to the beach today. Hmmm. Well, the kids had fun. They’d have fun jumping naked in snow-melt, though. I sat with my yellow rain coat on, hood pulled tight, with a beach towel wrapped around my freezing legs, and thought, This is what 80 degrees feels like to my mom. Except it was more like 60 degrees and even the warm sand couldn’t make up for those cold gusts coming off the water.
The sandy beach is divine, though. We happened to sit next to another family from Bainbridge, and their delightful children shared all their great sand toys with our kids, and in all, it was a good outing.
Next time, though, I’ll come prepared with the ear muffs and the gloves.
