What to do with kids on a hot summer day? Head to the beach, of course! We usually go to my favourite spot on the Island, but today we decided on a change of location. Our nieces (Toad and Pook) and I went to Providence Bay and the beach was filled with families out enjoying the sun and the water. I’m a little bit biased and still think Carter Bay is the most beautiful spot ever! The water is so clear and the beach is always less crowded. We took a stroll on the boardwalk and went to the Interpretive Center.
We hung out at the beach for a few hours. The water was really refreshing. I was expecting it to be cooler than it was. There were loads of people swimming, but we just went in knee deep.
Before we went to the beach, the nieces and I made some homemade strawberry popcicles. Remember that massive strawberry craving I’ve been having all week? Well out of the six quarts of strawberries we bought, we had a quart and a half left over. Thanks to a comment from Louann, the girls and I were inspired to make a nice, cool, refreshing treat for ourselves to enjoy after spending the day out in the sun.
Pook was my big helper and hulled the strawberries. We put them into the blender with a speck of sugar and some milk.
Pook then poured the strawberry mixture into the popcicle molds and then we popped them into the freezer.
