Tales from the sea(side)

So, earlier today, I took myself for a good long walk along the beach. I’ve always loved the water, and like nothing more than going for a yomp (as we have it round here) along the shore and having a good old think. Unfortunately, having time to think in this case has probably done me a disservice, as I’m now worried about something I hadn’t had time to think of before…Hmmm.

Anyways, I love this beach. Or, I should say, these beaches – at Findhorn there are two beaches – the tranquil bayside (see pics 1, 6, 7) and the more tempetuous and dramatic Firth side (2-5). As you can see from my pics, it was a tad windy out there! It was also freezing – you can’t really see in the pics but I had about six layers on!

I took my camera so I could share the lovely views with you guys…hope your day has been super!

    Seeing those pictures makes me wish I did not live in a landlocked state sometimes. It would be nice if me and the wife could drive to the beach. Sounds like you had a lovely day even if it was a bit cold. Have a good one.

    Love the pics, especially the first!I’m sure it was cold, but not as cold as it is here. It’s the end of March, and we’re *still* getting snow. 🙁 I’m so ready for spring.

    Beautiful pictures! We sort of have a beach nearby, but at this time of the year, there’s so much snow everywhere, it basically feels like you’re looking at a field… of snow. It’s not too exciting.

    I love the ocean too. Whenever I feel Life is about to take a big turn, I stroll along San Francisco’s Ocean Beach to prepare for it. There’s something reassuring about witnessing the rhythm of the frothy waves and the vast expanse of the sand plain and the shoreline.

    Nice images. The beach is always my favorite place for walking or simply sitting and zoning out and watching the waves – whether it’s cold outside or not.

    Lovely photos! And I love the word “yomp”. It’s so expressive. 🙂

    Chilly or not, the beach looks lovely! Minds have a tendency to go into places we do not want them to when we have idle time.

    I’m jealous that you live so close to a beach! The photos are lovely though 🙂 Glad you enjoyed your walk.

    I love the water too! Especially the ocean. Hearing the waves, feeling the sand, soaking up the sun (when it’s not too cold!)…aagh I can’t wait for the summer beach excursions! Great photos. Thanks for sharing!

    those pictures are beautiful. I’m jealous that I’m stuck here, in a city that is far, far away from any beach. I like the blog, I’ll definitely stop by more often, and thanks for coming to mine as well!
