Sunset

Family activity tonight - sunset watching at the beach. Whilst watching the sunset we had many and varied conversations. Some of the questions we pondered included:
  • Why do we say we go swimming at the beach, when quite clearly what most of us do is just standing?
  • Why is it that dog owners mostly suffer from illiteracy?
  • Why is that boat travelling south, then north, then south, then north, then south, then north, then south, then north........
  • Why are we watching a sunset because the sun is very shiny? (Really. This was hotly discussed.)
  • What should we have for the dessert that was inevitable after the sunset watching.
We just love the beach. Even more if our feet don't get sandy or wet, so Glenelg is one of our favourite spots. Bike path, strolling path, park benches and grass to picnic on. One day when we grow up we're going to live there. (I really hope we get grown up one day)

I visited Glenelg all those years ago when I visited Australia. If my memory serves me correctly we went on a steam train from Adelaide.

I hope you had an ice-cream for dessert last night, that is what we normally have when we go down to the beach in the evening.

Two years ago when we visited Glenelg it was so hot all we could do was bake on the grass. When we visited a few weeks back the heat was much more comfortable and we lay on the sand for a while. It's a lovely area to relax in. x
