The wintery scene at Westboro Beach
The weather favoured some outdoor play on Saturday so we donned our layers, packed a couple of sleds in the car, and drove down to Westboro Beach. We’ve been sledding here before but it occurred to me recently that it’s pretty much the perfect hill for younger kids, say 5-11. It’s easy to climb, it’s wide, and depending on the conditions the run is pretty satisfying. Especially if you’re a STUNT SLEDDER (the safe kind of stunt sledder of course) who likes to veer dangerously to people waiting at the bottom of the hill.
By the way, I do recommend helmets for the younger set, and if there are icier conditions. On Saturday the snow was pretty much perfect.
Westboro Beach in the winter is a very scenic spot. Here’s a panorama of where we were. It’s hard to believe there’s a beach under there! If you are familiar with this area at all and have eaten at the beachside restaurant here, you might also appreciate this photo too.
