Happy New Year

beach abstract
A little late to say Happy New Year, but this is how we started 2018.

Beaches, for me, don't mean sunny skies and sunbathing. Beaches are for walking. And peace of mind. My favourite times are with moody skies and crashing waves. Wind in my hair. Song in my heart.
The ocean soothes my soul. When I am near the water,I feel a completeness. The problems of my life drift away, like seaweed that has lost its mooring. Life seems less complicated, and problems don't loom quite as large.The ocean waves have come into land for ages and ages, and will continue long after I am gone. All is calm.
What better way to bring in the new year than a walk on the beach?

I can't think of any thing better BUT for me this is how I spend Christmas Day.

It's so cleansing and relaxing.

I love going to beaches with friends ... like you.

I really resonate with your feeling about isolated beaches. I am a creative also (illustrator and teacher) from the south coast of Western Australia. Winter is great here because there are less people around. I've been looking for blogs to follow and I like yours. I look forward to more of your posts. (I have a blog too)
