A friend had her birthday this week, and thought it would be a great idea to get some of us together at the beach.
We’re lucky to live very close to a number of nice beaches, and the closest one has some old fishermen’s huts that have been converted into weekend houses or, most of them, into places you can rent on Airbnb.
This is where we ended up. A group of friends, at one of those places, eating and drinking, while the young ones played around, watched whatever they watch on their phones and iPads, and surfed. Yep, cold as hell, the teenagers spent hours in the water.
We spent the whole afternoon, had dinner, and came back home. The little one wanted to stay longer, of course. The kids were varied in age, so she felt great playing with the older ones, and they were super sweet, making sure she was included in everything.
The beach was, predictably, almost empty, with another birthday party going on next door, but mostly just surfers and people walking their dogs. Cold, but nice.
A very nice way to spend a day. Really nice.
