Well, not really a beach, but as close to one as we will come to until the family heads back to France at the end of June.
Maybe 50 yards from my parents home is the river Steyr. A stream that begins in the valley here and runs for about 60 miles before it arrives in the city with the same name, Steyr and enters another, larger stream called Enns . That river then enters the Danube, one of Europe's largest rivers.
The weather is fantastic right now, we are hitting highs of 30 Celsius, so the river banks next to the house are a welcome rec space for the people of this hamlet. And others who know of this specific spot of course.
The water does not get warmer than maybe 8 Celsius, it's still run off season, but just sitting by the water, wading across to the island the stream created, is a very nice activity with the family.
Growing up, we would swim in the stream during summer, ride some makeshift rafts for a few hundred yards, I am sure kids still do the same today.
