Me Day at the Beach

I have spent most of my days with my daughter and grandson, but today I needed a Me day, a day to myself to enjoy the sun and perhaps take myself out for lunch and maybe some ice cream. So I did just that!

A very steep walk down to the beach and boardwalk

I sat at the beach nearby, listening to families play on the beach, and hearing the waves gently crashing on the shore, and I counted myself lucky to be able to enjoy the beautiful day that was today.

I am fortunate to be here, so close to the Pacific Ocean, and having a lovely day to myself walking the boardwalk and chatting to people who pass by me, and getting some much needed alone time. I am blessed!

This view reminds me a bit of Positano in Italy

I took myself out to a restaurant that was recommended by many people, The Boathouse, and I enjoyed some fresh fish and chips, a nice tall glass of cold water (I know – I’m boring that way!), and the amazing view from the rooftop patio. If anyone ever comes to White Rock, go here! The fish was delicately battered and flaky and so delicious, and the chips were cooked just right with good seasoning to it. It was all served with ketchup and this lovely homemade dill tartar sauce. I highly recommend it!

Amazing fish and chips! And check out the view !

After lunch, I continued on down the boardwalk to the longest pier in Canada. I love the views from the pier, and was amazed to see how quickly the tide had come in since I had arrived at the beach. I was delighted to see all the starfish at the end of the pier. I had hoped to catch a glimpse of a passing whale but alas not this time.

How many starfish can you see?
The amazing views!

It was a fantastic day and I feel refreshed and rejuvenated and ready for another day. This was exactly what I needed!

Me time

Yesterday was my Dad’s funeral and because of the weather and it being outside, we had a 15 minute service. It was nice and we all went to brunch. My family drives me crazy but it was nice to be all together ❤.

But today was me day. I rented a car and took off for the day. Went for a drive and had breakfast at one of my favourite places, Angel’s Diner.

Came home and did some cleaning. Then I took off again. Some shopping and driving down to the beach. It was surreal at the waterfront. The fog was slowly lifting and it made for some amazing views.

I ended up on a patio, enjoyed an early dinner of a Pickerel Po’boy sandwich. It was a perfect me day. Sometimes we need mental health days to reset our minds.

I don’t do this very often, as I don’t have a car. Rented one for the past couple of days and definitely made it worth my while!
