Going to the beach in January is a normal sort of thing in my life. So some friends took us to the beach today. We headed north to a place called Sag Harbour. On the way we had a wonderful chat and didn't notice the miles passing by. What we did notice was the snow beside the road and the very picturesque houses up around that area.
It was a cold day again - about 24 degrees Farenheit, according to the instruments in the car. When we got there it was a little windy but not too bad. I leapt out of the car to take some pictures. Silly me didn't put on my coat but I managed to get some good shots before I got too cold.
The beach had snow on it, a rare sight for us, but it also had frozen water at the edge of the sea. How cold does it have to be to freeze salty water??
We were the only people actually on the beach - the one non-Australian in our group didn't leave the car. However, there were people wandering around the town and visiting the shops. The weather obviously doesn't put a dent in the weekend pleasure.
