Favourites

Playing Favourites this week with Shay over at Quilting in My Pyjamas.

My favourite this week is definitely the beach in my suburb.

Now that summer has decided to pop in for a visit and school's back in, I have spent some time sitting in the relative quiet enjoying the peace of the beach.

This is a bay beach which is perfect for me as I enjoy paddling or sitting at the waters edge with some stitching or a book in hand.

Calm.

As the mood changes with the time of day and the weather I like to visit regularly.
The sun's out so it's off to the beach now for me.
Hope your weekend is wonderful.

Looks beautiful. We used to be 15 miles from the beach when we lived in TX. I miss it, so thanks for sharing yours.

I used to live near the beach and remember how nice it was to start or end the day just watching the waves. Great FTF :-)

I am amazed by the changing sea, every day you get something different. My morning walk (which I have been a bit slack about this week) is always a chance to see something different and quite often I kick myself that I haven't bought my big camera.

So great to get pictures of changed moods.... the sea is too far for me - (2 1/2 hours) but I love it...

You're so lucky to live so close. the beach is a 30 minute trek from my place.

Thanks for sharing your beach with the rest of us for FTF. It's truly beautiful and Im a teensy bit jealous.

I am so ready for beach weather. We are in N Florida about 25 minutes from the beach, but it has just been too cold here. Come on Sunshine!

Judy said...

Thank you for sharing your beach with us! Absolutely wonderful! our weather has been -18 degrees so this was a special treat, and finally warmed up today to 30 degrees.

I just used the beach as my favourite!

I like yours better, though - ours is a 2 hour flight away!

thanks for sharing and enjoy.

Happy FTF
