Patiently stalked by the feral chickens

Another leisurely morning in paradise. We settled in by the pool for a quiet morning of sunny warmth. Then out for brunch at one of the nicer restaurants in town. It was tres yummy. All the desserts were amazing! We waddled back home, and slowly packed up to go to the beach.

It's about a 20 minute walk through an unused golf course. The wind was almost nothing, especially compared to the last few days. There was even a pair of loungers. The beach isn't what you'd call pristine, but it is the middle of winter after all, and technically the beach isn't even open.

The whole little bay is very shallow (low tide), and today the water was very turbid so I couldn't see squat. Linda watched as I swam. A couple of times i nearly rolled over to breathe. Rita from our arrival a pair of chickens were scoping us out, looking for a handout I think. They had no fear of us at all, coming within arms reach. It was nice lying in the sun, warm but not hot.

From there we walked over the headland and found the other beach. It's a bit longer and nicer, but it was a bit more exposed. The water was nice, and I'd call it refreshing. Most of my triathlons have been in colder water.

From there we walked back home, and settled in for a quiet late afternoon and evening. Planning tomorrow. Where will we go?

  1. Sounds heavenly, glad you are enjoying yourselves!

  2. Best of all, it's -20C and snowing in Calgary.

  3. Sounds fabulous! Love how you find the positivity in the scenery, where others (*ahem* me *ahem*) would complain about water temperature and lack of baby powder sand. Good man!

  4. There is a lot of scenery to be positive about. And the sand on the second beach was everything you could ask for.


Looking forward to reading your comment!
