Fun on the Maitland dune

There is nothing more fun for a kid, and I say kid liberally as some of us adults are still kids at heart as well, than to go and climb the Maitland sand dune on a Sunday morning. Even better, take an old boogie board or carton box along and go and slide down the dune.

And if you don’t have one of those, just run full tilt and jump.

My name is Firefly and I like long walks on the beach

Maitland Beach stretching off toward Blue Horizon Bay

One of the things I missed most under lock down is going for a walk, and with that I don’t mean taking the dogs for a walk around the block. With restrictions lifting a bit and being allowed to go for a hike again, I’m keen to get into one of the nature reserves around PE and to hit a trail. What I miss most though is a long walk on the beach, sand between my toes, the sun on my face and the wind in my hair… or rather what’s left of it.

Beach fun at "The Rock"

When we were small one of our favorite places to go on a Sunday afternoon was “The Rock”.  The Rock refers to the rock below Something Good with the gap through which the waves wash into the little natural tidal pool.  Today we spent a couple of hours on the beach and Miggie and her friend Dinky had a great time leaping off the rocks into the swimming hole.
For some reason I forgot my camera at home but luckily I had my phone.
