2016: the year of spaciousness

Because there's more to life than work

Showery day

Lots of blustery showers coming in from the sea today and wasn’t totally convinced by my other half’s proposal for a walk in the dunes, although once we got out it was just lovely. You can see right along the coast and the view kept changing all the time – it was raining at our end of town but 10 minutes drive away at the start of our walk the sun was shining.

IMG_2021The dunes have become such a part of the pattern of our lives this year that it’s hard to believe that we’d rarely been there in the past, despite having lived in this town since we were born.

IMG_2020I love the contrast between the small details – like these peachy sea buckthorn berries – and the big scale landscape of sea, dunes and sky. My other half likes the hundreds of paths that mean you can run for miles without doing the same route twice. And we both relish the solitude, and the ever-present feeling of ‘I can’t believe this is on our doorstep’.

IMG_2028About a minute after taking this picture the rain hit, but it was still beautiful walking along the almost deserted beach with the wind at our backs, seeing what had been washed up by the just-starting-to-retreat tide. We saw this beautiful cockle.
