Hasn’t the appearance of spring been a literal ray of sunshine. This winter has been an odd one, watery themed, not too chilled. Much of it spent watching the raindrops on the windows….
We became experts in puddle jumping and indoor activities. We felt grateful our home was a sanctuary from sogginess when other’s were overwhelmed with water.
Rainy days can be peaceful. I like the drumbeat of drops on panes of glass. A good book and a blanket can make for a blissful afternoon. Especially if you add in toasted treats.
But the monotonous misery became a little much for us all. Cabin fever and grey induced tiredness made tempers fray at times. The occasional blue skied day became a jewel to be grasped and treasured.
The beach in winter is a such a different creature from the over crowded, towel infested summer variety. It becomes your own private desert island, still abundant in seaweed and shell treasures.
And on a clear crisp winters day, you can conquer the sky- as long as you have a big enough stick!
I think we are all enjoying the arrival of much needed warmth and light. So long Winter, may the next one bring us snow…
