Visiting the beach in the winter is such a cool experience! We went with my friend and her son who are staying with us right now. While it was extremely cold and windy we had the opportunity to walk around on all of the ice and take some photos. The waves were huge and wild, crashing up against the mounds of ice and snow. If you haven't done this and you live around here, I highly recommend you do this at least once. Just remember to bundle up!
