At the beginning of last week, my husband suggested to go to the seaside and have lunch there to celebrate our anniversary and Valentine's Day.
So this morning, we picked up my mom and headed East to the seaside.
We are lucky enough to live not too far from the sea. It's not a beautiful sea but our Coast on the North Adriatic Sea is quite famous as one of the most amusing sea locations in Italy. Discos, pubs, hotels, amusement parks etc. are all at their best next to perfectly equipped beaches.
This in summer. In winter - and especially in a foggy day as today - it's not so amusing but we had a great time. No traffic to arrive there, lots of people walking around, open shops, fully booked restaurants and THE PERFECT BEACH.
We had lunch early then we headed to the beach: it is a quite small beach and in summer it's full of umbrellas placed in perfect rows, full of people trying to have the best suntan, kids playing in the sand and teenagers answering phones and playing soccer.
Today, we were just a few. The sea was far away with an incredible low tide, seagulls were making noise while fishing on the beach just a few steps away from us. Bunches of shells (not beautiful shells but my daughter loved them!) to look at hoping to find hidden treasures. The sand was accumulated in dunes, no umbrellas, no one shouting. It was not sunny but it was not too cold so we had an hour of complete relax, wandering around.
Then it was time to drive back home and here we are, an hour later.
And to celebrate this winter day at the beach, I have a card to show you:
This lovely digi is from Whimsie Doodles and I used a Bo Bunny flower paper from the Alyssa Collection and a dooted cardstock from DCWV.
I made it using a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday:
The sponsor this week is Whimsie Doodles so it's a perfect match.
This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Cute Cards Thursday Challenge # 151 where they ask for hearts and flowers.
Well, time to go and do something more useful for the home...
