A Christmas Day Walk


One of our favourite traditions is meeting with a particular friend for a walk on the beach on Christmas Day, in the afternoon. It’s the perfect antidote to (an excessively sugary) breakfast – making room for a grand feast later. 

This friend is my husband’s childhood buddy. He was best man at our wedding. He is like an uncle to our boys. 

We haven’t manage to meet every single Christmas. But this year – today- we did. And it was spectacular! A beautiful, sunny and mild Christmas Day. But boy! Was it windy!  The wind blew sand in our faces as we walked westward. So we took shelter in the woods – opting to follow the path around the headland. A very pretty option. 

A Christmas Day with family and friends.
