I am ashamed to admit that yesterday was our first time at the beach this summer. I have lots of excuses, but I'll spare you. After hearing report after report from friends who said you could actually go in the water, we packed up the car and went to hang out with friends at one of Nova Scotia's most beautiful beaches- Risser's. Indeed, the water was by these standards warm and we had a blast jumping in the waves and Boogie boarding. So nice to get out of my polar fleece life sometimes.
