winter beach

A couple of days at the seaside. I found myself taking a couple of deep breaths and then without any thoughts of resistance found myself slowing down after weeks of activity and must do's. The days were misty, the seas were choppy and there was a king tide - the highest in 7 years we heard. In someplace there was no sand to walk on and the winter sun only showed itself once or twice. But we found many things to do and an ever so cozy place to have hot chocolates and a good glass or two of red wine. Just before we headed off the skies cleared and I took this gull picture. The sun followed us on the drive home.

Slowing down and listening to self seems to be at the forefront of so many people's minds and lives lately. Even tonight catching up on my fave blogs, I've read this kind of message in 5 or 6 different people's posts. It's such a nice thing too ... to let go of all the 'I gotta do's' and just be instead. What a welcome change x

I've always liked the seaside in winter time.

Now, if I dig into my childhood memories... If that is the bluff in the background, and the island to the left - you must have been on the jetty. :)

Most importantly though, did you see the penguins?
