Walk on Longbranch Beach a Great Way to Start the Day

My lovely bride dips her toes on her beach for the first time since moving to Longbranch.

It was a beautiful morning for a beach walk.

The marine layer hung jealously above Anderson and McNeil islands, shielding the sun. Seagulls are screaming in search of food; a blue heron glides over the cold blue water.

My lovely bride and I climbed down our ladder for the first time to enjoy a cup of coffee on our beach with sand under our feet.

Our trek along the water’s edge was a wonderful way to start the day.

“Look,” my lovely bride calls out, lifting a small shell from the soft wet sand. “Our first treasure on our beach.”

Later, after soaking the shell in water, a small crab crawls out.

The day is just full of surprises.

We had a nice walk on the beach; a view of Pitt Passage a reward for climbing down the ladder.
