Checking the weather map in the morning, we decided that heading west and south was our best bet for finding some sunshine yesterday.
Knowing from experience that there is always a wind chill factor at White Rock, we brought a variety of jackets, vests, hats, gloves, and other diverse clothing layers.
The wind was fierce and bitterly cold but we bundled up and hoped that the brilliant sunshine and the fact that it is mid-March would somehow make the promenade walk bearable.
We walked the street, where it is more sheltered, all the way west and then with the wind at our backs and pushing us so hard we had to apply the brakes, we walked along the water on the way back.
The whitecaps were beautiful in the sun and it was a glorious day, but for the cold.
