A day out at Wicklow Beach towards the end of June was amazing. This beach is a lovely, long stretch of water and shore, mostly rocky.
It was a clear, calm day with hardly any visitors to the beach.
Just walking beside the water and listening to it lap onto the shore is so peaceful.
The rocks are lovely and flat on both sides and perfect for stacking or skipping into the water. These lovely flat rocks would also be perfect for mandala painting or other types of rock painting.
One of my projects this year is based on the Flat Stanley books. When we were visiting with the grandkids out west at the beginning of the year I joked and said I would take one of their toys back and take photos of it on our different daycations when we got back home. Then I thought about the Flat Stanley stories, which they hadn’t heard about, and I took a photo of both of them holding their favourite stuffed toys. Each time we go out and about I take the photo and snap photos of them with all the sights here in Ontario. The photos are then mailed back to them and they each have a photo album full of The Flat Kids adventures in Ontario.
Here is some rock stacking I did at Wicklow Beach and you can see the photo (cut off) beside it. This photo has been sent back to BC with a story about the beach and rock stacking. It’s a great project to do. The kids look forward to their mail each month and can see the various places we like to visit.
Wicklow Beach is also close to the Big Apple in Colbourne, Ontario so we stopped there are got some great photos of the Flat Kids outside the Big Apple.
Out and About shares more places to visit.
I’ve not been doing much blogging, didn’t realize you had had knee surgery until a friend (Robin) mentioned it! I hope your full recovery will be speedy.
As for Wicklow Beach…We were just there on Thursday, I love that spot. (I was visiting for a couple of days.) The water was cold (walked along the beach through it), but felt wonderful–it was hot!

It was our first visit to this beach, and we look forward to going back once my recovery is complete. Thanks for your good wishes, improvement is coming slowly.
Beautiful photos Linda and you reated idea, the kids must enjoy
