Last weekend I went away to the beach with my family. Just the five of us, my mum, dad and two brothers.
One of my brothers is headed off to South America for seven months in a few weeks so this was our last chance of getting together as a family given he’ll be away for Christmas and the summer holidays.
Anyway..I love the beach- it’s beautiful, relaxing as well as a wonderful place to exercise.
South Australia has so many beautiful beaches. You can reach the beach within 20 minutes of the CBD. But we travelled about 2 hours away to Port Elliot and it was stunning.
Each day I was able to walk down to the beach and go for a long walk or run- not only was it a work out but it was therapudic. I felt like I didn’t have a care in the world.
We’re only a few weeks into Spring at the moment, but I’ve realised I have to make the most of what I have right here on my door step. And this Summer I want to make it to the beach more. I want to make more time for that.
Call me crazy but I love lists, they help me stay organised, focused and give me something to work towards. They just work.
So I’ve written a list of the top five things I want to do, or do more of this Summer.
1. More beach walks
2. Cook something new each week
3. Take more photos and capture the moments
4. Go snorkelling
5. Have picnics
I have no doubt that the list will grow, but this is a starting point- and I can’t wait.
