What a blessed relief it is to get the kids to this open and interesting place- what more could a mama want for a playground…
The children are left sleepy, contented physically, emotionally and spirit fed.
I am the newly converted- thinking mountain life was as good as it gets for a family who values nature, but no… this is ultimate, actually a mountain by the sea would be ultimate... wouldn’t it?
I don’t bring much with us to the shore, there really is no need, sandcastles are moulded with hands and decorated with driftwood, found sea creatures are best examined gently and then placed back into their homes. Today I forget the towels and just let the children drip dry in the sun, cleansing sea salt powdering their skin.
Frosty cold days are ahead, I hear whispers that the first snow has fallen on our mountain top back home, I can't even imagine this, while I swim here in the effervescent waters of southern NSW, I remind myself to enjoy it, to soak up the prana spa that is the ocean, before we head back to our, beautiful but cold whipped home.
