We are finally here….. at Kingscliff Peppers Salt. We have been preparing Ben for our holiday for the last few weeks. He has been talking about the beach but hasn’t seemed that excited about it until today. He was so keen to get in the car this morning. While we finished packing he spent most of his time hovering at the door.
Last time we took Ben to the beach he wasn’t keen on it (The Beach #2, The Beach #1). But this time……………it was amazing. It was late afternoon and the sun was low in the sky making the water looked almost pink. We had a strip of beach over two hundred meters long just for us. Ben was trembling with excitement. He held my hand tightly as the water touched our toes. His smile was enormous and he soon let go of my hand and went running in announcing ‘BEACH!!’ with great excitement. He didn’t seem to mind that he was still fully dressed and the water was ….. well freezing! Unfortunately we had no cameras or phones with us. Luckily we have the memory. It was one of those unforgettable moments. I of course shed a little tear. Simple things really make the best memories.
