Winter Walks by the Sea
There are so many reasons why I love living near the coast. Getting blown around the beach on blustery winter days is definitely one of them. The sea hides the seasons well. There are no trees with bare branches, no mud churned fields to give away signs of frost and hard ground. It may be cold, but when the sun is out and the wind dies down, you could almost imagine it’s a fresh Spring day.
We took these photos back in February when it was so windy the sea had been churned into thick foam. It coated the rocks and flew through the air like snow. We had the beach to ourselves, wandering beneath the cliffs until our ears ached from the cold. We managed to catch the last silvery rays of the afternoon sun, looking particularly glorious over the cliffs as we made our way back to the car.
