As I said on Monday my plans for the weekend were changed but not all was lost! First I went to the Cedar Farmers Market and then in the afternoon we went to Pipers Lagoon.
It is so beautiful and on a hot day it was just what I wanted. We started by settling on the beach and then going for a swim. I’d been swimming a lot in the local pool, well swimming is a bit of a stretch what I do is more of a mean doggy paddle, anyway I’d forgotten how fun the ocean is to swim in. How much more buoyant you are in salt water. It was also the perfect temperature for the hot day. Cool going in but once in it was lovely.
There were quite a few people there but not enough to make it crowded.
I went with my landlady and her sister and we bobbed around, floated on our backs and chatted away in the water. It was a lovely time.
Once out of the water the fun wasn’t over, there is a walk to do as well!
Those pictures will be my next post but for now here are a few more of the beach and one of some GREEN seaweed. I don’t know why but seaweed fascinates me, probably from growing up in landlocked Alberta it’s still a novelty.
Cool shower on the way to the beach:

Rocks at the end of the beach (I thought they looked nice):
The previously mentioned seaweed!
