One of life,s luxury's to me is that I live near to the sea. In fact I have only lived inland for a few years, in my entire life, and even then I would often take visits to the nearest coastal town. I find the sea has an amazing draw in so many ways. I visit even more frequently since having children, when they were babies I would take them to help their sleep. As toddlers I would take them to exert their energy, and still do now. They practise scooting, roller blading, cycling along the prom.On the beach we investigate all the weird and wonderful creatures in the rock pools. The Children have the same enthusiasm for the sea as I do. Though I use it as a place to take stock of things, escape and take refuge from worries (which we all have from time to time). I use the beach as my place to wish, dream, cry, laugh, think, recharge and refresh myself. The photograph is of my son yesterday afternoon, who also never tires from a visit to the beach. I also went for a lovely walk this evening, along the prom and back with my daughters( I find it gives us a good opportunity to talk) the sea was calm, the sun was setting, just bliss!
Yes, I probably will be one of the old ladies sitting in the deckchair with a 99!
