It was a rather grey Sunday in which the island seemed to be muffled under a blanket of mist. Everywhere was quiet and the island took on a rather eerie air. Resisting the urge to hide under blankets we wrapped up warm and headed out into the driving rain. We chose St Brelades Bay which during the Summer months would be packed with tourists. Yesterday we were one of a handful of people on the beach.
We battled the gusts of wind determined to have a run around on the beach.
We couldn’t see that far out as heavy mist hid the horizon from view. We listened to the waves crashing whilst looking for dolphins.
During the Winter season many of the hotels on the beach front close giving the impression that the bay is hibernating waiting for the sun to wake it up again.
Oldest became excited when she thought that she had spotted a shoal of dolphins. We soon realised that what she had actually spotted was a group of brave surfers who were making the most of the big waves.
Oldest and Youngest love scouring the beach for treasure and they were soon showing me the spoils of their treasure hunt.
Starting to feel the cold we were delighted to spot that one of the cafes was open.
After a final jump in the shallows we headed to the cafe to dry off and warm up with steaming mugs of coffee whilst watching the waves crashing outside.
