In the Bleak Midwinter

It was Father's Day here and we went to the beach, which was nice, what with it being winter here and the beach being a nice place to go when it isn't too hot.

We are having something of a heat wave, and the air is warm but the sand cool and the water cooler, but it doesn't really feel wintery at all, and the beach was crowded with warm air fanatics but when we got past the people and settled down to do our usual sand-castle and tag playing we had a nice time.

Eloise made me get into the sea, but when the water got past a certain point she chose not to continue, understandably.
