Beach Blessings

My second favorite beach at which to end a day on the Cape is Bayview Beach in Hyannis, which is a short drive down backroads from the house. 

Sam ventured out into the water in his clothes as Sam is wont to do. 

John preferred to stay on shore but he used to go into the water fully clothed too.

Can you see the two threats being made in this picture? 😆

I'm so glad that we made time to go to our favorite lake beach on the Cape. We hadn't been there in awhile. Before we bought the house, this was our favorite neighborhood to rent in. The water is nice and clean and warm, and the boys like to swim across the lake and back. Also, whenever I end up getting a stand-up paddleboard, this is the place that I'll probably come to use it the most!  

I went on my favorite nature walk to the beach and took a different path through the woods on Wing Island behind the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History than I usually do and it brought me to this staircase that I don't think I'd used since the boys were a lot younger! (That was a really long sentence, sorry!) It was good to see it again! And it was good to see the sea in not-too-distant, uh, distance too! 😁

That soft white sand feels so good on bare feet. I can practically feel it now!

Looking back towards Wing Island.

Me and my friend the sea. 

It was low tide so it was pretty far out.

Saving the best for last, my favorite beach of all, "our beach," the pretty little one down the street. I love it there, and one of my favorite things to do is to walk down to it at the end of the day. 

My seat by the sea. But only when the tide is low. 😄

I'm truly blessed by beaches that are special to me and by the beauty of nature in my life. 💙
