As tempers were starting to fray and with us both feeling a bit of cabin fever, we decided to pack a picnic and head OUT! It looked like being the last sunny day for a while too, so an ideal day to go. (I honestly don’t know how Mum is coping – she’s such a trooper.)
The Golfer bought a fresh loaf of bread and some chocolate muffins (guaranteed to help chase away the blues), and I made up some salad sandwiches, added some bananas and coffee, along with our puzzles and kindles. Enough of a mix of good and treats, I thought.
Into the car, music on and we were away down the freeway and ended up here
We ate our picnic in the car, only leaving it to use the nearby amenities, conscious of others and checking out people population (not many) before doing so. From the window of the car I took these pics, getting a blast of fresh sea air while doing so which helped sweep away the cobwebs.
The tide was out, well actually on the turn, so the sand bar was exposed
These girls were on skiffs, and one jumped off onto the sandbar, dragging her skiff onto the sand then proceeded to jump and do bombs into the water, it must drop straight down at that point. She had a ball, as did her little dog who ran like crazy around the sandbar.
a man was out fishing; not too sure how success he was
and just before we left another was sailboarding, moving at a great rate of knots with the stiff breeze
the seagulls were enjoying the sandbar too, basking in the sunshine
From the front of the car I could see these houses; what lovely views they must have across the water
was balancing like a ballerina, using wings and feet to keep him there in the buffeting breeze. He was a long way up
It was delightful just relaxing in the car with the windows down just a little, and I must admit to having a little doze after doing the sudoku.
Feeling very refreshed and in a much better frame of mind, we traveled home. And despite the new rules, this trip was needed; we’ll cope better in the coming days.
Hope you’re doing ok Dear Peeps.
