Sand between my toes

It’s been a fantastic weekend, at last! Sun, sun and then more sun!

Yesterday morning, I got out early to go for a run. And Dora the dog was allowed to tag along.  We got along much better with her extendable lead,  she didn’t trip me up this time. The run felt great and so much easier. Not sure if it is because of the longer run I did or if it is my body pump classes that has improved my endurance? Or maybe it was just the warmth of the morning sun?

Today we spent the day on the beach, what a wonderful past-time. The boys loved it and so did I! I think I even got the beginning of a tan to show for it. But there is at least another two months to go before I go for a swim. The water is FREEZING. Still the sea was packed with surfers fighting for the waves, including my husband. Not unusual to see six people taking off on the same wave. I am surprised there are so few accidents out there.

Amazing to think though; here you are on the beach late March and it’s packed with people… When we left at four, there was a traffic jam to get in to the parking by the beach… The portuguese like to go for their beach strolls after siesta at 3pm.

So here’s for a new week with a Spring theme.

Now it has unfortunatley turned a bit windy again, so the temperature has dropped. But the sky is blue!
