Favourite Thing Friday

It was a beautiful day in Adelaide yesterday.  Just the hint of a breeze and the sun was shining.   I had to do a couple of things in the morning (like taking my son to the dentist for a filling and looking for a swim suite for our holiday) but when I got home I thought it would be the perfect day for doing one of most favourite things.  Walking on the beach.

I use to have to travel quite a way to do this in our previous house, but for the past 12 or so years it is just a quick trip in the car or a nice 20 minute walk.  Today I took the car down because I took the dog down and I didn't think she would last doing a long walk down the beach and the trip there and back.

As you can see from the pictures there wasn't many people around which is just the way I like it.  The was one other person walking their dog which was fine by me as I am kind of scared of what can happen with unleashed dogs on the beach.  The rules are that they must be under effective control but that rarely is the case.  Coco stays on her leash at least that way if there is a problem I can pick her up fairly quickly.

The only noise was the waves braking which frightens Coco a bit.  She is now walking quite well on the leash until we get to the soft sand that makes her bounce for some reason.



Head over here to Mrs P's for more FTF.

Isn't it wonderful that the sun is out and beach trips are on the cards again.

We are so lucky to have wonderful beaches here.

I may just have to head down there this weekend for a walk!

I love to walk on the beach but just don't do it often enough. Crazy as there are so many beautiful beaches here.
