I had a relaxing one and a half weeks down the south coast near the ocean. Now that I have moved to the Blue Mountains, I don't get to the beach that much any more. Fortunately, my parents own a house down on the south coast so we have a beach house to go to. I have been going down there for years for my summer holidays. I have seen lots of changes - it is not the sleepy little area it once was.
Years ago my parents and I used to go down to the ocean to see the sunrise and go for early morning walks along the beach.
I wanted to share this with my children. So, up very early - the kids were so excited they went to bed early so they could get up early. We got down there in time. I was amazed because we're always running late to everything. This was the kids' first sunrise they have seen (well, Katie was born at sunrise). It's the one time for the first few minutes you can look at the sun without it hurting your eyes.
It was just beautiful. The kids loved it. They played and made sand castles which little Loopity Lou would knock over. We even played leap frog. I attempted to do some yoga but the boys always tried to climb over me.
I even cleansed a rose quartz crystal ball that I picked up at Mogo the day before. These balls are great for massage so I cleansed it in the ocean to give it some good vibes.
It was a beautiful sunrise. We didn't get to do it again as the next few days were too cloudy and rainy.
