A Perfect Day
We woke on Saturday morning to one of those perfect days that come after rain - bright blue sky, sunshine and a beach just waiting for us. Kiff, Tag and I headed off to the river, tennis ball in hand, and proceeded to have the most wonderful morning swimming, throwing and catching the ball, playing with other kids and getting sunburnt and sandy. It was marvellous. The water temperature was just right, the dune we tucked into to was out of the easterly wind and we avoided all the crowds on the beach. Tag swam out into the river hundreds of times to collect the ball until even he was exhausted and cold. A spaniel and water, a boy and water, a mom and water - the perfect mix of fun, laughter and happiness - a magic like no other.
