Big skies and empty beaches. Pale washed out colours of sea and shore. The sun low in the sky casting long shadows and causing our eyes to squint. A sharp smack to the air as scarves are wrapped tightly and hands plunge into pockets. Stomping over dunes and along vasts stretches of sand. Looking for flotsam and jetsom washed in by the tide. Nature spotting and collecting treasures from the shore. Tasting salt on your lips. Watching the gulls dive bomb for fish. Seeing the magic in the light as the afternoon merges into early evening.
