It's a beautiful long white sandy beach and because it is is so big we pretty much had the beach to ourselves a lot of the time.
Two women came along riding their bikes and taking their beautiful dogs for a run. They were huge and obviously loved the beach. They pretty much bowled me over as they ran past!
Once we were there we went exploring over the rocks, and even spotted some penguins!
It was such a perfect day and we loved being able to just be spontaneous and do whatever we wanted to do. We have never been able to just say 'let's walk to the island' etc before and just be able to all do it together, because we would have Noah with us and wheelchairs and beaches, water, and islands don't mix. It's strange and fun to be able to just do whatever we want now, but it's very bitter sweet as we would of course choose to have Noah with us over being spontaneous any day.
To make it the perfect day we would've loved to have Noah with us, but then we know we couldn't have done all the things we did today. It's hard to get your head around ...you are glad you can do things, sad that you can, wishing you couldn't, but grateful that you can at the same time. I just keep reminding myself that Noah would be glad we can do it, and happy that we are choosing to.
