I’ve been having some great fun with my new lens and have so many photos on my hard-drive that over the next few weeks, I’m going to share them with you in a series I’ve titled “Things you find at the ….”
Thanks for indulging me and I hope you aren’t getting too sick of all my beachy pics …especially since this post is going to be all that!
As you know, I love the beach, I love the summer and I love the outdoors. I’m trying (at times, very badly) to spend as much time as I can out there, to soak it right up!
And, here are some of the things I have found at the beach in my visits
Whenever I go to the beach with my nieces, we take a bucket each and collect shells. Some of the shells are perfectly shaped, but mostly they are a little cracked and broken. Beautiful, all the same. We bring them home, rinse them off and I have a 30cm-tall glass, cylinder vase that we are going to fill up with all of the collected shells. We have a bit of work to do yet Hopefully, I will be able to show you a full vase at some stage…
It wouldn’t be a trip to the beach without seeing a sandcastle or few, right?!
At the beach I visited on this day, there was a group of children learning to sail. It reminded me of my “foray” into sailing when I was at school. And, what I remembered was how often we had to change sides of the boat, duck under the beam and watch where we were sitting at all times! I haven’t done it since, so clearly I didn’t enjoy it that much!
A seagull and his reflection
Crystal clear waters, that shimmer in the sun-light.
“The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears, or the sea.”
Totally agree with the quote above!
