Sometimes You Just Have To Get Away, Take 2.

Friday, August 6, 2010

Taking a cue from last week, today my Little Man and I again ventured out in search of another perfect day at the beach. To change it up a bit we decided to try out Wingaersheek Beach in Gloucester, at the behest of some friends and a lovely commenter. I have one word, and one word only to describe this beach... WOW! This has to be, hands down, one of the best beaches I have ever been to, and coming from a California girl who loves to travel to tropical beaches, that is saying a lot. Before going into detail I must add one little caveat, this is one of the best beaches I have ever been to with my kid. If you are looking to lie in the sand and enjoy the silence with your girlfriends, this is most likely not the beach for you*. If you are looking for a beach with butter soft sand, a protected coast from the waves, dozens of tide pools, and rocky "mountains" to climb, and about a hundred kids who want to not only play with your kid, but are also willing to share the buckets of toys that they brought with them, well then, this is your new heaven on earth. Throw in the fact that it is less than an hour away from Boston door to door, the convenient (albeit expensive) parking on the beach, the picturesque views, bathrooms, concessions and even showers... well that just made this my new favorite place to spend a hot summer day.

Here is how I plan to spend the rest of the month my life.

Oh Summer, I hope you never end...

*Although, to be fair if you are willing to walk a bit away from the chaos, I did see people enjoying some child-free areas.

Love your blog! Funny your post is about Wingaersheek beach today cause that is exactly where my two little girls and I spent the day as well! I read an article the other day about this beach and had to try it!!! I was impressed and will be going back soon! Everything you said, I absolutely agree with and then some. It was awesome. Wish I could have seen you and your adorable "LM", maybe another time while beaching it!

Sounds like you had so much fun.
Wish it was summer here in Australia, this cold is making everything gloomy.
