The beach and other cold places…

13 Sep

The 1st of September is Spring day. In typical fashion, it rains on that day as a welcome committee…

However, the 11 of September was a very hot day. So at 5pm (!!!!!!!!) we decided to go visit the beach. As I opened the car door, a gush of freezing wind flooded the car and turned me into a cold blooded creature. I wished I had taken along my lamb wool winter coat, but what the heck!!! It’s our first beach outing for the year and we shall enjoy it!!!

We stayed no longer than a full hour. I sat down and tried to warm myself up, while Phillip exchanged a few throws; the kids of course had the most fun. They played with their friends until their lips turned purple; at which point, they dashed to the warm car to change into dry clothes. After literally sand-inundating my car with half of the beach , they were dressed and we headed home!

It’s a mix of Hayes and van Blerks’ kids as you can see. The blond little guy is not ours!!!! It was too cold to get up and take close-up pictures and Micah was the only one staying close by!!!

Summer is coming, just not at 5pm yet!

Oh and today, the car wash is on strike! On strike? Yes, on strike!

    Looks like everyone is taking their chance to strike, when do you think we’ll have ours?!!!
    I love that picture of Leana, she looks so French:-)
    We went to Muizenberg on Wednesday, also a lovely warm day at our house but when we got there it was blowing a freezing gale! We were hoping to see some whales but it was so windy and the sea was very choppy so the whole outing was a bit flat, even our icecream didn’t cheer us up it just made us even more freezing!!!

What did you think?
