May has seen a balmy second summer with lucky guests having the whole beach to themselves..fishing and playing in the water.
Now the season has finally broken and things are starting to green up on the farms..at last.
Extended families, often 3 generations, as well as couples have been visiting A Ski View this month. It is the perfect place for a family get together or just a great spot to enjoy the beautiful views, space, privacy and serenity.

March has been sooo good on the beach. So warm, calm, and pristine. This shot of Little Dip is unspoilt paradise! Wow! It’s on our doorstep.
What we love about March:
*Brilliant weather, no crowds.
*Farmers markets, organic produce swaps.
*Boating, skiing, surfing, beaching, kayaking, chilling out….Share and Enjoy!
