A day at the beach is great.

I have a bit of red that was not there prior to sitting on the dock.  I slipped into the water enjoyed a short swim (emphasis on short!).  Campfire time and picnic lunch were included.

And then the time just to sit and talk with someone.  In the car, on the beach and in the cabin.

For those who regularly take a summer vacation, you know the advantage that this time gives.  I had wondered how one day would be.  Perhaps knowing it would only be one day heightened my awareness.

All in all, well worth the time.  And now, off to church service this morning, a manor service in the afternoon and then preparation to head out to Ottawa for a few days for our denominational conference.
