Empty Beach

I can see the tourists arriving again at the beach near my house where I live.
Different sizes of coaches.
Some big, some small. That carry different people.
Some old, some are kids but all of them just so happy to see the sand and the air and the sea (even on a low tide).

I am so happy to see them. Good for business, good for health and good that our beach is being appreciated.

This made me realized how lucky I am to live where I live even when lots of times I would complain about my rotting ceiling or the bald carpet.
Because when everything is so overwhelming inside the house I can always depend on the beach to clear my head.

And see poetry in an empty seafront.

I can only imagine the stories that was made here that day.

But its not only me enjoying the serenity. My son loves the empty beach too!
The freedom to go anywhere.
To run endlessly.
To chase the resting seagulls.

And he of course takes photos of the things that he loves.
Like random signs.

And I am so thankful that I live where I live
because nothing heals tired souls better
than the

We are so similar in situations. My house is falling apart too and I use the beach as an escape to clear my head of all the stress. I love an empty beach but I agree we need the tourists to keep the town going. Some of them are ok. :) Sebastian's photos of the beach are lovely and I'm so glad you have linked them to Through my child's eyes. Thank you.x

I can relate on the floor to ceiling dilemma's - mine are broken lino and a ceiling that is falling in all exacerbated by the fact the house needs to be re-stumped. Our walks in the bush are my solace as we are too far from the beach here, I miss the beach, I miss home.

Loving Where you Live
I can relate to this, as I love where I live too! YOu can always improve your home over time, but you can't pick it up and move it!

The beach is a perfect place to feel free and at one with life. To have this in walking distance of your home is wonderful. I feel lucky too though it is a car journey for us. Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.

Yes you are so lucky to have the beach right there where you live! I imagine it must be hard on a hot summer's day when the place is packed with tourists, but oh how to enjoy an empty beach when you can.... #SummerDays

I feel exactly the same about the mountains that surround our little valley. There is always somewhere quiet to escape to when everything gets a bit too much. Thanks for linking up to #summerdays xxx
