When we get a break from the days of rain, even if it is cold and windy, we head outside. Usually to the beach. We have to. Because Alistair is almost two and he needs the fresh air and exploring and running and filling his boots with ocean. Alistair is a beach kid just like his big brother. I have been leaving my camera at home these last few months, just enjoying them. Today was different. Today I felt the need to bring it with me. So I put on my 50mm, which I haven’t had on my camera in over a year, and we put on our gum boots. Oliver begged for the sandy beach. I usually say no, but today I said yes. We definitely filled ourselves to the brim with that fresh ocean air. We needed today.
