a sunday walk

sunday 28 july

It was the last day of our holidays and after a week of heat, and then rain, we just wanted to escape and have a good long walk with the lads. The weather looked more promising heading north, so we drove to St Andrews in Fife for a beach walk. We arrived below heavy cloud, mist clinging to the town and hovering along the beach, but as we walked a little further, the sky cleared to blue. Blue ahead of us, mist behind. The tide was out so we had a wide expanse of sand. These photos look so calm, but it was really windy.

yes, BREEZY!

There were tiny shells dotted along the beach; they’d been catching my eye as we were walking, so when we turned to head back towards the town again, I decided to take a few photos. Just random shells on the beach, so easy to miss, but look at their patterns and delicate hues.

heading back.

And what of the kiteboarder on the cover? Here she is, and she was strong. There were two kiteboarders here, and I couldn’t resist a few photos and a video as the second swept past me along the beach. This looked exhilarating.

    The kiteboarders are so cool. I used to love collecting seashells on the California coast when I was a kid. I think taking pictures is a better idea! 🐚

    So cool right @kerrieturcic 🤩 And I was the same - I collected shells too. I loved my shell collection! Now I can’t resist photos!

  • coppernotes

    Oh, and thank you for sharing! @kerrieturcic ☺️

  • kerrieturcic

    @coppernotes And photos take up less space!

  • coppernotes

    Ha! True @kerrieturcic true. I still feel tempted to pick up shells sometimes but I’ve idea what I’d do with them, and figure they belong on the shore but... it’s funny to think that this collection brought me so much happiness as a kid ☺️

    @coppernotes Same. I do still have some! My grandma used to bring me shells from Florida. I still have them...and will be taking them “home” since we are moving to Florida next week!

  • coppernotes

    @kerrieturcic It’s so good that you kept them ☺️ and ohhhhh a big move! You’re going to be soaking up that sunshine very soon indeed! Exciting time - although moving is stressful too so hope you’re coping with the logistics of it all 🙌🏻

    @coppernotes So far so good. Ask me on day 3 of our 5-day drive across the US!

  • coppernotes

    @kerrieturcic 😲 ok-ay.... that is a loooooong old drive. I want to say, hey, it’s an exciting road trip... but I sense it’s just a LOT of miles you’d rather not be driving! Good luck 🙏🏻✨

    @coppernotes My son and I are going to listen to the Harry Potter books so at least we have that.

    Ohhhh well that sounds like a very engaging way to pass a journey! ☺️ @kerrieturcic
