Winter Beach Walk Tips

ShoesCold mornings mean it’s time to change up my daily beach walk routine.

1) Sneakers are not warm enough for me in the winter.  I wear sturdy hikers for warmth and stability.

2) Our wonderful summer “breeze” changes to a chilly winter “wind”; most often from the northwest.  Walking near the dunes provides some protection from the gusts.

3) Beaches are not groomed in the off season, allowing the soft sand to pack down.  Plus, the moisture in the sand freezes, creating a firmer surface for walking.

4)  Hat, gloves, and a winter coat are necessities.  I also swear by wool socks and ski pants.   Occasionally I leave the house thinking I am over dressed for the walk…until I reach the path!

See you on the beach :)
