Coastal Views

Where we live we are quite close to quite a few different coastal towns, I don't think many weeks go by that we aren't at a beach somewhere. Hiking up and down the cliffs and hills, searching for weird and wonderful things or simply walking along the waves.

Shells and stones are generally collected by the bucket load and it is sometimes hard to convince someone not to bring them all back into the car. 

It is nice to be able to sit and watch the waves crash against the stones and take in the fresh air.
Let the children just play, explore and learn. Let myself just stop, rest and think.

I think deep down, I am still very much a city type of girl.
