Serenity Beside The Sea.

Yesterday we took the dogs, and went for a walk along the harbour, which is about a two minute drive from our front door. The sky was a clear pale blue, with a few wisps of clouds, and the breeze just strong enough to produce a bit of chop. Beautiful.

I feel claustrophobic inland; I'm only truly at home living close to the sea.

"Roll on, thou deep and dark blue Ocean--roll!
Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in vain;
Man marks the earth with ruin--his control
Stops with the shore."
          Lord Byron


  1. The water is where my spirit will always be. The mountains are for renewing my physical body. In NC, I have the best of both worlds. Lord Byron has it right! I'm glad you had a wonderful walk.


  2. Nice to be by the ocean. It is such a serene place for me.
