Being Thursday and Market Day, I have taken to getting our stew veg there rather than the offerings from the local supermarkets.
It was snowing but pleasantly warm, and Hubby said now would be a good time to check out the beach and walk into town from there.
Maggie hadn’t had her morning walk yet and taking the car didn’t seem to be that good an idea so that’s what we did.
The flood gate is still closed so we had to go up the ramp and down the other side onto the sand. Maggie was not impressed, especially as it was not how she remembered it.
We’ve renamed it White Sands:

You can just make out the ‘point’ in the distance which is shown clearer below in one of the first pictures I took in that direction when we arrived.We decided to walk along the beach path into town rather than on the roads, but the wind was blowing in our faces and the snow with it, so we came off the promenade and followed one of the side roads instead. Maggie was off lead most of the time and the snow was still virgin beneath our feet so there were no mishaps.
We got our veg then went into the cafe for a cuppa before walking home. This time we kept to the roads, meeting up with several other walkers who told us that it snowed practically every year but never hung around for long.

There is something icy falling outside which could well be freezing rain.
The internet weather forecast proudly boasts intermittent showers for the next 64 minutes, and the radar picture has a rather fetching pattern of elongated green balloons along the East Coast.
That’ll be a no again (or not).
