A 4 Beach Walk on Sunday Morning!!!

Now I feel like the Lucky One!!!
A few weeks ago I dropped my glasses...that's okay, just pick them up...but oh no, not me...I trod on them making them completely useless!!!
Lucky for me my Optometrist had a great deal running at the time...buy one pair...get another pair plus a free new pair of sunnies!!! And look at these beauties...I felt like Paris Hilton in them!!!
Wow...after wearing them they had such great coverage how could I wear a smaller pair again!!! Here they are...posing on the rocks at the beach last weekend...
See the bit of bling on the side there...nice and sparkly too!!!


At the kiosk at our beach...I thought I'd treat myself to a Soy Late...picked up the timetable for the movies this week...I knew had a few hours respite coming up so I thought I would take myself to see New Moon...sat down and worked through the times to see what fitted in along with JoJo's times...Afterwards...I took a beach walk...

So...come walk with me Bloggy Mates along our 4 beaches...

Turning right at the fence back there...walk along, 'round the corner...

along some rocky parts along the way...

end up at this commemorative bench...

look out across the bay...

just behind the sand here on the left is some Aussie bush...

see the sand on the right hand side...

Now we have come back to the fence at the start and walked along and gone around some rocks...

and looking back across to the corner we have just come around...

Coming back now...



Going back towards the fence...
just outside the fenced area/grassland I spot this Kombie van on the way back...how cool is this...they were stopping for breakfast...

And I come home to bacon & eggs cooked by Hubby!!!
What a great start to a Sunday...later on I couldn't help it...had to go back for my first swim of the Season...and it was great...
Bring on Summer...I'm ready for it!!!
Have a great week everyone...Dzintra

Dzintra I am envious of you stretched out on the beach wearing your sparkly new glasses!!! Oh, it sounds lovely and your photos are beautiful. Hope you enjoy the movie.

There's me huddled in front of my sitting room fire! I enjoyed my virtual beach walk, it almost made me feel warm :D

Micki said...

I am also freezing here in Dunfanaghy, but snug in our cottage. I enjoyed your pics. Our beach is wild and rough looking....the sea looks very angry indeed.
Glad you are keeping warm and having fun!

Hello Dzintra, thanks for the beach walk. I dipped my feet in!!!! That Kombi Van is pretty cool. Have a fantastic day.

Fer said...

You have such a lovely piece of coastline up there. We couldn't see ours for all the rain on the weekend! Swimming? Too fffffffreezing. They'll come though - here in Tas we work on quality rather than quantity!!

a good yarn said...

Good morning Dzintra! What a lovely, wonderful walk you escorted us through! And then the piece de resistance....an Aussie breakfast! That looks so good! What a great husband you have! Thank you for inviting me to this blog....there is nothing like a peaceful walk on the beach in the midst of rushed lives! I sent you the recipe via email. Enjoy! Anita

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Vicki's Bit-o-earth said...

Oh Dzintra, thank you for that perfect stroll on your beach!!! I love the color of your Aussie water!!! and the rocks, and sand! Wow! Beautiful!!! And I can't tell you how many times I've trod on my glasses, but those Paris Hilton ones look great ... a happy accident? (: What a lovely day you had and how lucky to come home to that breakfast~ xx Vicki

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dzintra!!! Yes! I remember you having a Latvian heritage!! When I saw that beautiful picture of Riga, I just had to put that into my collection. I would imagine that it is the Paris of the Baltics, what a glorious city! I am going to my dashboard at the moment and I will add your "Merry Christmas" greeting to my list. I just love languages and I want to celebrate everyone's linguistic and cultural heritage for this wonderful holiday season. Thank you for visiting!!! Have a marvelous Sunday. Anita

Gene Black said...

Mm. I do love the beach. Being landlocked I rarely get a nice beach walk. I love to walk the beach at sunrise or sunset and see the amazing colors of the sea and sky.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh Dzintra! I am so happy to post your country and greeting! We are all representatives of the light and love of Christmas and the beauty is that we celebrate it in such diverse and wonderful ways!! Blessings to you today, Anita

Shiree said...

Millie said...

I love your new sunnies Dzintra! Mine are very big too - I love to feel like I can hide behind them & pretend to be someone else! All sunnies need a bit of bling & yours has the perfect amount. Maybe your foot was 'guided' to tread on your old pair!
Millie ^_^

Hi Dzintra
Love your new sunnies.. very swish! I might need to tread on mine now.. Love your swap items in your next post too.. looks like you're having fun in blogland..

Now.. I don't know if it just my imagination.. but seeing these beaches and craggy rocks make me think I do actually remember them from way back then as a child.. I must post some old photos for you!!

Have a great weekend xx Julie

PS sorry about the delay in getting over here.. plus my pc is just not coping with all the snow in blogland.. hehehe
