My mum is visiting. The sun is shining. I worked in the morning and then we went to the beach. It’s suddenly warm enough for the boys to run around making sand-castles in their underpants. (That is, run around in their underpants making sand-castles.) I paddled in the sea and it was cold but exquisitely clear.

    An interesting comparison. Yes, I think you would be right that there is more sand on the beach. I’ve noticed the Whanganui beach can change quite dramatically over time and it isn’t always due to a storm. Lovely to see the boys enjoying the sun and sand.

      I guess ‘shifting sands’ is a bit of a cliche, isn’t it? But it really did look different. The boys are hardy. Mum and I kept our fleeces on!
