Today was a beach day. I love beach days.

What is a beach day? Well, on Saturdays when the weather is sunny and the temperature goes above 20 C, and we don’t have a wedding or other event booked, Vince and I go to the beach and basically relax and have a picnic for a few hours or so.

The beach is such a cool place to go. Watch the eagles fish, watch a kingfisher fish, watch the seals watching us, find an alligator lizard (not the true name, but it’s small like a gekko and has an alligator-like shaped head) before it finds the food bag, watch the silly people swim in freaking cold water, move stones to watch the crabs scramble for cover, etc. etc. Never an end for entertainment.

Vince and I go to one or two beaches specifically for the adult sections. Yes, that does mean nudity. It also means no children, at least where we go.

The last time Vince and I went was in July 2006. I remember it very vividly because it was during one of Victoria’s very rare heat waves. It was unbearably hot and down by the water it was heavenly. It was just a month later that my world went upside down.

It was a perfect day today. Almost 6 hours of watching the world go by. I’ll have a few pictures to put up later.

And no, nudity is not an option for me anymore, which does mean to say that I have been topless on more than one occasion in the past.

It felt so incredibly wonderful to do something I haven’t done in so long.
