It hasn't been a year for beach trips. The town I'm working in is notoriously cold, it rains all the time, and it's a fair distance from the beach.
But a few weekends ago Sprite and I finally tired of sitting inside the cold house, and ventured out into the cold outdoors.
We went to the beach.
It was just as I'd expected. It was a 30 minute drive away, it was deserted, it was windy, and it was cold.
It was wonderful.
