A few weeks ago, we went on a walk that took us by a busy duck pond. We'd brought some old bread with us so that we'd be able to feed them, and we were excited to see there were swans and goslings there, too.
It's been so sunny and bright out, the water is a perfect color and temperature. It's also been very still -- horrible for surfing, but perfect for standing in, or kayaking, or swimming. Sam has finished his classes, and so he can visit the sea with me, guilt-free. I'm not the biggest fan of hot weather, but this can stay for a while, and we'll definitely make the most of it with ice cream and seaside walks.
