Good Morning All.
This morning I thought I would share some advice to anyone, over sixty, who is contemplating a walk on the beach in the middle of winter.
After five years of doing this I think I qualify as an advisor.
However, even I forget and hence this post.
Always check the wind.
Don’t just stick your finger up.
Wind is sneaky.
Look at the mountains.
If there are clouds at the top of the peaks there IS wind.
Yesterday there was a mild south easter.
This south easter,however, had made a detour over some snow laden mountains.
It froze my marrow.
To have a comfortable walk marrow should be warm.
Or in a soup bone.
The next is a very important tip.
Always remember to go to the loo before walking.
I was halfway along the beach when the urge hit.
By the time I reached the rocks at the end I was in pain.
On the way back I was looking at the dunes longingly.
Fingering the minute piece of tissue in my pocket.
I decided against it.
Tip number three.
If you have a camera slung around your neck…make sure the strap is not so long that the camera hits your tummy at every step.
This does NOT help when the urge to widdle is overwhelming.
Have a well behaved dog.
One that listens to instructions.
NOT one that sniffs every stone and flower while you stand at the car, yelling, get in!
With your legs crossed.
Try not to kill said dog on the way home.
While she grins at you.
Now I need my coffee.
Have a super day.
