As we planned our Saturday, we realized our only free time during daylight hours was in the morning. So we decided to leave early for an outing. I cleaned the bathroom while Dad studied a nice place to go. (It is great to have only 1 bathroom to clean!) He chose Cronulla Beach, about 30 minutes drive from here. The Tolmans like it because it is close and parking is free. It is a very family friendly beach with grassy playgrounds, restrooms, snack bars and restaurants, and a path looking down on the water. It was fun to watch the skilled surfers riding the waves. I was surprised to see swimmers in the cold water.
We walked all along the beach path and back again, then up into the town shopping area. They have taken the main street area and made it a pedestrian mall. There was small ice skating rink (think winter here though the temperature was in the low 60s) and many shops and restaurants. We bought an apple strudel and pecan tart to enjoy while sitting on the benches.
