A few of us planned to go to the beach today and a better afternoon could not have been picked because it was sunny for once ! Yes, the sunshine scrambled out of the clouds for once so we had warm weather ! We met up at the first beach where I was encountering rocks - my favourite obstacles if you didn't know by now - already so I had some idea of how I'd be spending my afternoon by the time we climbed over a whole load of other rocks in order to reach the second beach. I found out later that there had been a pathway all along but hey, I ended up being outgoing by breaking my handbag and tiptoeing and sliding down rocks so I can thank my adventurous friends for leaving me with no option but to be more like them - adventurous - and my bag was the only party injured so I feel like I have achieved something today ! By the time I caught up with everyone, they were tackling some kind of hill of rocks and grass and as much as the view from the top would have been priceless, I decided to avoid the whole thing because I am pretty sure we would have all been there right now trying to get me back down if I had have gone. One of my friends knew the beach pretty well, mainly because she's always there as she lives nearby so I just call her the 'mom of the group' as she told us off for being unsafe and directed us on the best places to go to and when we went to the cinema later, she even had a bag of spare 3D glasses with her - can we please have a round of applause.
Most of my friends walked - or climbed, more like - to the shipwreck but a few of us stayed, mainly since we'd done enough adventuring for one day and once the rest of them returned, we ate cookies and crisps which is when a few of my friends decided they wanted to go into the water only to chicken out because it was 'cold'. The beach was so quiet and peaceful, I loved it and the gorgeous weather only added to it so I didn't mind the grains of sand that had somehow crept it's way into my eyes, boots and mouth ! With only twenty minutes left before a few of us would be going home, we walked up to a park at the back of an estate which was so much fun and ten times better than the one in town. Although, I have to apologise to my friends for the amount of times I asked them to spin me around the roundabout, only to start making faces and screaming 'stahhhp' as if zombies were going to attack. A medal for tolerating me should be given !
In the end, it probably the best afternoon in a while, one I won't forget, and was heaps of fun so I just want it to go to the beach every day and have nice weather but then I remember what country I live in ! If this was a Facebook status I could put the 'feeling grateful' tab at the end of this paragraph so there you go, in writing.
Now to empty the sand out of my boots - Yay for my last week of being fifteen being brilliant so far !
