Winter Beach Adventure

Sunset at Westport’s Compo Beach

On a recent freezing Sunday afternoon when my daughters were bouncing off the walls and doing everything they could to dive my son crazy, I decided I needed to get them out of the house. We bundled up and drove down to the beach. The girls played on the playground, ran around in the sand at the water’s edge, climbed on the jetty, and watched the sky and light turn gorgeous colors as the sun set. We went home with a little less energy and a little more appreciation for nature’s beauty.

What’s your favorite easy outdoor activity for these cold winter days? Tell me in the comments or shoot me a note! (Also let me know if you’d be cool with me tagging along to take pictures, because I have an idea for a little project…)
