My favorite time of day at the beach is late afternoon. The sun is low in the sky and all of the day-trippers have gone home. It’s the perfect time for a glass of wine, some cheese and crackers, and a late day swim.
I only got to spend one late afternoon at the beach last week and it was lovely. Just Dale and I with a margarita (or two) and a swim in the balmy waves. It was probably my favorite hour of the whole week.
There was an evening, though, where we rode our bikes to the beach. We had eaten a late lunch and decided to all take a ride together. The light was gorgeous and I was so glad I had tossed the camera into the basket of my bike.
I was able to get a good photo of everyone.
Hannah on her bike.
And Jess grinning.
Patrick with his long hair getting blown around.
And Hannah and Jess by the shore.
I even thought to have Hannah take a picture of Dale and I.
Family portraits at the beach are a very good thing.
