Happy last Sunday of August!
I’m struggling to wrap my head around the fact that, this time next week, we will be in September. Around here, the last week of August usually means final trips to the beach and the ensuing insane traffic that accompanies said trips. This year, that mad rush to the shore got bumped up a week, as most of the schools near me start back up tomorrow. (This will make my kids happy, since they feel greatly put upon that we started the first week of August. They’ll feel better in about two weeks when I decide we’re ready for a day or two off to celebrate six weeks of school though.)
I’m not so much a beach in the summer girl. I much prefer the beach in the fall or winter. In fact, I love a winter beach with the wind whipping up off the ocean and the salt stinging your cheeks. Best part? Much smaller chance of sunburn.
What’s your favorite time to visit the beach?
