A Brisk Beach Walk is the Best Medicine for Post-Christmas Blahs

Its over. Christmas is done. The sky is gray and it is cold. Is anyone ready to put away the Christmas decorations? Or do you feel more like sniffling bear clad in Santa PJ’s in perpetual hibernation?

After getting sick on Christmas Day up to the present and staying indoors for awhile, a brisk walk on the beach is great medicine — especially after the post-Christmas blahs. Other folks had the same idea.

As we were walking,  we witnessed people bundled in sweaters and hats while other brave souls were sporting bare skin in bathing suits.  The weather couldn’t seem to quite decide what to do either since it was sunny and cloudy at the same time with the temperature at a brrrr-balmy 63 degrees F.

Love how the clouds and sky were echoing each other with texture.

However, after a bit, the sun overcame the clouds and seemed to clear out the congestion.

The sun broke free from the clouds and cast a silvery shimmer on the surf.

One thing for sure, the sky was gorgeous and the waves were cooperating for both the surfers and the dolphins alike. Also, getting a little exercise and a little sun did us some good. A brisk beach walk is the best medicine.

Even if you don’t have a beach, just getting out and getting a little fresh air and snapping a few pics with the I-phone is a great way to clear out the post-Christmas blahs.
