Last weekend, Dave and I thought it might be fun to drive three hours and go to Sauble Beach. Dave had been there a bunch of times with his family when he was young, but I had never been, so off we went on an adventure!
It was such a nice drive, and the clouds eventually went away completely. It was also the first really cool day of the season, which was nice! Going to Sauble Beach was another Summer to-do list item so I am glad we got to check that one off our list.
The first store I went in once we got there and this is what I see! Yeah right!!! Anyone else remember these magazines? I was OBSESSED with them when I was a young thing. I had no clue they even still existed.
This used to be a restaurant, but is a store now.
They have a strip, with all these neat little trading post type stores, which I LOVED. So many things you don't need but have to have! I was a good girl though, and kept the spending to a minimum.
Cute guy, what's your name?
Oh god this one store that was right on the beach had been taken over by sand and damp. Everything in there was pretty gross, and the smell of rotting wood was prevalent. I just had to try on this hat though. Howdy pard.
Some of the best sand ever. I loved it. And the water was so warm, like bath water. I thought it would be much colder on account of the cold day, but I guess it's true when they say, cold air, warm water. I just made that up.
We went on a long walk to try and find Dave's old cottage that his family rented every year, and not only did we find it, but the guy who owned it (and lived next to it) was still alive and kicking! He remembered Dave and his family (it had been 20 years since they last rented the cottage), and we chatted for quite a while before we continued on our merry way. Dave was pretty happy.
After our long walk we were pretty hungry, so cheeseburgers, fries and cokes on the beach was really the only way to go.
And then it was time to head home. It was an excellent, happy day, and I can't wait to go back! We are thinking of renting a cottage there next Summer ourselves, but until then, adieu Sauble Beach!
