Water, water, everywhere
Some of our family enjoys walking on the ocean beaches year round. There's nothing to compare with a very brisk walk cloaked in hats, coats, mittens, scarves, boots, and woolly socks. I find that after spending days inside with the wood stove cranked up walking on the windy beach clears the cobwebs from the brain and puts a pep in my step. I consider this to be the non-skier equivalent of cross country skiing. There's interesting detrius from winter storms to observe while walking on the shoreline. Some times there are many sea clam or scallop shells to gather. A thermos of tea or coffee enjoyed in the lee of a dune is very pleasant. The people I do see are usually being walked by dogs. Ocean air refreshes the spirit.
