To the Coast!

The more time I spend here, the more I realize just how much there is to see. I took a metro with my roommate and friend to the coast yesterday; Sutherland. It was a spectacular experience. We were in such awe with how beautiful the beach was and we were very excited to smell the salty air and feel the ocean breeze. We are so anxious for the warm weather to come so that we can go swimming at the beach.

I love getting to know the locals because we are here for such a long period of time. For example, while at Sutherland we spoke with the fisherman. It was a really amazing experience. They enjoyed talking about what they do, what kind of fish they catch, and what life at the coast is like. The culture is so rich.

The colors of the boats in the Yacht Club were beautiful, and the swans were so elegant.

My first fish and chips! They were so delicious, not really even that greasy. The fish was very fresh, it must have been caught right on the coast.

The fisherman dared her to hold the fish he caught, so she did. They thought it was the funniest thing.

The Lighthouse was so pretty. All of the fisherman were standing on the peer fishing.

The beach was rocky, and the breeze was cool. However, there is no snow on the ground and it was about 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit. The lighthouse was at the end of a very long peer.

We ate our fish and chips overlooking the ocean. It was such a great view!

The surfer must have been freezing, the water was cold.

We spotted an old windmill in Sutherland.

I am looking forward to going back to the coast, and experiencing more. We can't wait to have more fish and chips either! Now I know what all the hype was about.
