Making Memories















A few days away, just the three of us. There was time on the beach searching for and collecting rocks, there was time to read, knit and play bug bingo, there was time for exploring on the hiking trails and there was time on the beach at sun set. We stayed at The Pinery, in a yurt. We cooked meals on the barbeque provided, and ate outside. We got up when we wanted to, and feel asleep just after the sun set. No phones, no clocks, no connection, except to each other. The days were simple and slow, just the way we like them. It was a wonderful few days, and the perfect way to kick off our summer.

  3. That is an unplugged getaway! I think I would be challenged to do it. Sounds like the three of you had a grand time and are rested up to be replugged once more!

    1. It was, and it was so wonderful! We live a pretty unplugged life in general, so a few days without really isn't too big a deal.

    What do you think of the book? I read it too.

    1. So true Tracey.

      I know you did, I saw it on your blog :) I enjoyed it. It was a very hard read for me in the beginning, but reading about how resilient they were, and what they have become gave me so much hope. What did you think?

  10. Looks marvelous! What a wonderful getaway. We're hoping to get to the seashore this summer (kinda late on the planning thing but that's just how we roll sometimes) and your photos make me want to go so much more.

  11. Looks like many beautiful memories were made. I really like the one of Reece and his Dad hand in hand on the beach. Sleeping in a Yurt sounds fun. Be well.

  14. I bet memories were made. My children talk about beach holidays from years ago, which surprises me, as they were so little. Beautiful setting to just unwind and be together. #CountryKids

  19. Wow, that all looks so very beautiful and that bridge is just wonderful it seems to go on forever. Sounds like the perfect time, nothing but each other. #countrykids

    1. The bridge does go on for quite some time. It is built over the sand dunes to protect the dunes from damage by humans walking through and on them. It was pretty awesome. And yes, perfect time away.

    1. It was. Ah yes, nice to be without the technology. It is really only the computer we were without, we have a cell phone, but only use it for emergencies, so there is no data plan which means no IG or anything else. It feels pretty easy to leave the computer for a few days, the only problem is the amount of email to catch up on :)
