Perfect Day: Sand, clams & ice cream

A heat wave is defined as three or more consecutive days with temperatures above 32°C/90°F. We are working on our third or fourth heatwave of the summer. What’s the best thing to do to combat the stifling heat and humidity? Play hooky and go to the beach.

On Monday we took the day off and drove up to Gloucester to spend a glorious day at Wingaersheek Beach.

After a good six hours of exploring the beach, splashing around in the water and laying on the beach, we packed up our gear to head over to Woodman’s of Essex.

What could be better than Woodman’s after the beach? Ice cream! So we jumped back in the car and headed over to White Farms Homemade Ice Cream. Imagine our sheer joy at the amount of flavor choices.
