It was actually a beautiful sunny day. Not hot, but quite mild and warm enough to have a splash in the water (or at least my feet did - Aaron was brave and went right under). It actually felt a little bit like summer!
We had no idea what the access was going to be like for Noah and after dragging his very heavy chair over a track of sand and then over a pile or rocks, we finally got him onto the beach.
Once we were on the beach, there was a lot of hard wet sand from where the tide had gone out close to the soft sand, so Aaron dragged him onto the hard sand for me and I took him for a lovely walk up the beach. It was so nice to be able to take him for a walk, especially as he was wide awake.
The boys loved having a splash...
and playing a bit of footy...
and a dig...
Aaron and I enjoyed laying on the beach in the sun in peace, while the boys went for a walk.
It was getting on in the afternoon, but it was so hard to drag ourselves away. We actually had the whole beach to ourselves at one stage, which is why it was so nice. It was definitely worth dragging Noah's wheelchair across the sand for a lovely afternoon on a secluded beach.
Kobe almost scared them away with him screaming 'hop, hop, hop!' but they were obviously used to people being around and stayed close to us for quite a long time.
I kept thinking how much all our friends in the USA would love to see kangaroos and wombats like this in the wild!
It was nice to have just a little glimpse of summer again, before it disappears completely.
