Restoration for the soul

Standard

I spent time at the beach this morning. I always love being near water and it’s been ages since I last went to the beach.

The sun was shining and, even though it was extremely windy, I could actually feel the warmth of the sun on my face. This was such a delight after weeks of seemingly unstopping rain.

I loved just having some time to slow down. Time to actually think about things for a change.

I really wish I could do this more often, but until the next time at least I have the photos (and my journal) to remind me.

A morning by the sea

Standard

I know I’ve posted about visits to the beach before, but every time I go I just can’t resist taking more photos! It was cold and very breezy this morning, with thick grey clouds at times followed by blue sky and bright sunshine! I do love our British weather, it’s just so changeable. Here are some of the things I saw and did this morning…

…a solitary daffodil waiting for the others to catch up.

These photos were taken over about half an hour. I sat in the same place and took them every couple of minutes. It amazes me just how steadfast and changeable the sea and sky are. Just beautiful.
