Sunny Sundays by the Sea

After a very slow start to January, things have really started looking up. When I haven’t been busy with my proofreading work, I have found time to catch up with some of my wonderful friends Β and have also been on some lovely outings to Totnes, Looe and Polperro with someone a bit special; possibly more on this another time! To top it all off, last week I received a tax rebate, so there are definitely some strong positive vibes circulating at the moment. All I can hope for now is to secure a full-time role to get me closer to my goal of moving back to the Truro area.

Last weekend we had perfect January weather: winter sunshine. I will never take living near the sea for granted again; having lived in cities and places where the beach was too far to go for an afternoon, I feel so lucky to be able to go for a beach stroll whenever I like. On Sunday I went over to Downderry, which is only a fifteen minute drive, and enjoyed a brisk walk on the beach.


At the height of the afternoon, the sun was absolutely stunning; so bright that I wish I had worn my sunglasses; and reflecting off the water so radiantly, as if to remind us that Spring is on its way. I basically live for days like this when I can wrap up warm and feel the sun on my face whilst listening to the sea crashing against the shore; it’s absolutely breathtaking.

After walking nearly the whole length of the beach, I sat down on a rock close to the water’s edge, just breathing in the sea air and watching the small but ferocious waves crashing against the rocks. I could have sat there for hours, had it not been that my bum went completely numb! Next time I will take a rug to sit on, and maybe a book – although I do enjoy simply listening to the sounds of the sea and getting lost in my own thoughts.

I remember being at Downderry last summer, sun bathing on the beach and braving a swim in the cold sea; I literally cannot wait for summer to roll around again so I can explore as many of the hundreds of Cornish beaches (there are over 400, apparently) that I possibly can. Who knows, maybe I will have a partner to accompany me on these adventures? I’m hoping for a lot more sunny Sundays by the sea.

    You actually make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I might by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m looking forward in your next submit, I’ll attempt to get the grasp of it!
