So far, this fall has been incredibly warm. At first, I was grumpily mumbling that it’s about time for sweater weather, but now I have fully embraced it and have been soaking up every bit of sunshine we get. Last weekend, after all the morning chores and laundry, instead of our regular neighborhood walk we decided to take the train to the beach and arrived just in time for golden hour. It was such a lovely evening! From watching the bright red disc sink in the horizon to catching Alaric right before the waves got too close again and again, it was so much fun! He kept running into the water with no hesitation, so fearless! The water by the way felt pretty nice and some people were even swimming. There was also someone surfing and oh boy, surfing at sunset must be even more magical, the golden light was so gorgeous!
Alaric is going through a stage where he likes cleaning everything up, that’s a stage right? He’s obsessed with it. That day his mission was to clean up the beach. It was kind of annoying and hilarious to watch him pick up whatever seems out of place whether it was candy wrappers, plastic bags and even cigarette butts. I am all for a clean beach, but I cringe every time he gets his hands on something gross and suspicious.
I feel so grateful for the opportunity to have the ocean so close. There is something so special about this huge force of nature at your toes, breathing in salty air and letting the breeze take all your worries away.
