Come ... walk with me - to the beach

We had a special evening tonight ... respite care for our daughter while she went out to a dinner at a local Country Club to celebrate Halloween ... so what did we do, we thought we'd take an early evening walk ... yes, just the two of us (doesn't happen very often) down to the beach ...
... we happened upon others with the same idea ...

... to our delight ... in the distance we saw a lovely little wedding party (the bride wore cream), posing for photographs and walking with celebratory drinks in hand ...
...then Hubby checked out the low tide ...

... we looked at the twisted sandstone ...

... then wandered back home ... our little tree fern garden

.... trio of Angels waiting at the front door ...

... and then a glass of red, cheese and crackers, and time out for a couple of hours ... put some nice music on, light a candle and wait till she arrives back home ... a perfect Saturday evening ... Our wealth lies not in what we have but in what we enjoy (Anonymous) ... just about sums it up... I hope you all enjoy your Saturday nights ...

Yes Dzintra how right you are - its the simple things in life that are the best. We are so far from the water up here in the Adelaide Hills & while it doesn't worry me so much, MOTH who's always had a deep affinity for the sea struggles constantly. So you have reminded me to make the time for a beach wander next week with him.

Sigh. What a lovely way to spend the evening. A walk along the beach seems to recharge the soul (a little red and cheese doesn't hurt either!).

Happy Stitching...Ann :)

Your beach looks so much like ours. We often take walks on the beach together, and I agree that you can't buy those precious moments.
