Although I consider myself more a lakes and mountains girl, I do love the sea. I just like being around water which, if you believe in this sort of thing, is a little strange as I’m a fire sign – I guess my moon ascending chakra or something is in Aquarius. 😉
However, I much prefer a ramble around some rock pools than basking in blazing heat on the sand, so when the British summer weather was being fairly kind to us, I thought I’d head to the local beach with the ‘proper’ camera!
But it rained. A lot. And I didn’t pack the rain gear. ‘It’s okay,‘ I thought, ‘I’ll hastily wrap the DSLR in a plastic bag,‘ …that had a hole in it. Back to the iPhone it was!
The very bleak (but atmospheric) beach was deserted except for myself, some seagulls and a women with her numerous dogs. As her companions ran around my ankles, I made typically British small-talk with her: I mentioned the inclement weather.
“But my dear, to feel the wind, the salt-water lashing against your face makes you feel alliiiiiiiiiive. ALLIIIIIIVE!”
Slightly bonkers and happy – best way to be!
