It was a Friday in March, and Richard was off work so we headed down the coast to one of our favourite walks at Ravensheugh Sands, taking the longer route through the woods and around St Baldred’s Cradle before winding down to the beach.
This is one of my favourite views, looking out across the bay to John Muir Country Park. The two sections of beach on this walk have entirely different characters, from this rocky shoreline to the pristine sands of Ravensheugh.
This beach, this moment. This beautiful light and that looming cloud suggesting that rain might be on the way. Don’t be fooled by the sunshine - remember this was March and that wind you hear was chilly. Harris running free and happy. Bracken was here too, a little behind me. This freedom, surrounded by nature. This is what I’m looking forward to.
