Bucket list item #15 – Silver Sands State Park
It’s just a small beach front with a little island you can walk to on low tide. Simple. Unassuming. Perfect.
I love this kind of day. Those lazy Sundays spent quietly with loved ones in cozy surroundings. There’s something so intimate about a local beach in winter.
There are two kinds of people: warm beach types and cold beach fiends. My husband and I love those cold beach days. Crisp winds, cold sand between your toes, a comfy sweater to shield from cool winds and a good book to cuddle up to. Add a lighthouse and it’s downright idyllic. (This bucket list check was sans lighthouse).
There’s nothing particularly spectacular about Silver Sands State Park. It’s lovely, but simple, and it’s merely a little stretch of beach, but it’s a beautiful way to spend a day. While Dave and I cozied up to some reading on a blanket, we watched two ladies having the beach day of their lives. They came equipped with beach chairs, charcuterie, champagne, bubbles and a massive bag of old bagels for the seagulls. They gave us some bubbles to partake in their merriment and Dave happily jogged the beach, scaring seagulls and laughing all the way.
We spent the rest of the afternoon shoes off and moseying the long stretch of beach. It was one of those winter days where an unexpected wave of warmth hits the afternoon and it feels deceivingly like spring. It was perfect.
