Sunday Thoughts

Sun, sea, solitude, silence, seabirds.

What I wanted.  What I always want when I'm cracking.

Even my kids knew that I wasn't able to talk.

It wasn't completely silent.  The gulls and the swell and the distant hum of traffic were the soundtrack to my mood.  I still wish that I could be in this place when I pull back the curtains, or open the front door.  But maybe one day I will learn to celebrate how lucky I am to have it a short drive away, instead of yearning for what may never be.

Even on a bitter day with the tide out it's still fabulous

  1. Another important reason that I can go here is because there is a cafe nearby with a very large disabled toilet for Smiley

  5. Beautiful
    I had similar thoughts just now as I walked the short distance to me beach and soaked up the surprisingly warm winter sunshine on such a bitterly cold day. Revitalising in stressful times.
    I planned a blog post on it too! xx

  6. I love that you have a place that you can find peace, I just wish you didn't need it. I am only ever an email away, if you need me, and believe me, I don't mind if it's a real ranty one xxx
