Focus on the Family has taught us to keep having a date night no matter how many years we’ve been together.
So, when the budget is tight, we do free stuff like walking on the beach.
Our kids are more than old enough to be at home alone.
So we no longer need to pay a sitter!
Our teens and preteen like it when we go out together on a “date”.
It makes them feel secure to know their parents are keeping their relationship strong.
They might say “Yuck” if they catch us kissing in the kitchen… but I know they are glad.
I was glad if I even saw my parents sit beside each other.
So, recently, we went to Goose Spit, in Comox, to take sunset photos. It is only a 10 minute drive from our home.
As we drove down to the parking area, my husband mentioned that it was a rare blue moon that night.
Bonus! I had not listened to CBC radio, that day, so I was pleasantly surprised!
We were able to get pictures both at water’s edge and from above on a trail that overlooked the beach.
There were a lot of people there with their cameras and boats!
Because we were on a spit; we could take photos of the sun setting on one side and the blue moon gazing over the ocean on the other side.
We both brought a camera, and we had so much fun that on our next date night we will include our cameras again. Our plan is to take flower shots on beautiful Comox Avenue!
If you don’t have someone to take on a date – take your camera somewhere special and have fun! ~ Wendy
