Walking in the rain


When you live by the sea, you always have somewhere to go. Occasionally I remember to take the camera with me.

Wales is unique. Apparently it's the only country in the world with a path around it's entire coastline. I live within ten minutes of a section of it, and walk there as often as I can.



 This summer it's mostly been in the rain. It's still lovely, and the noise of the waves is one of the most evocative sounds you will ever hear. The vegetation is thriving, threatening to take over the path at some points.







The sky and the sea are mostly the same colour on a dull day. And the rocks are black. Very sombre. Or dramatic.




You have to be careful on this bit, if the wind is blowing. There's nothing between you and a drop onto the beach. Except a few of those rocks. Scary.

  1. Lovely pictures Evonne, wish I was there (even in the rain). There's something very creatively stimulating about the sound of waves on rock, I always think, and I envy you having such beautiful scenery so close!

  2. Hi Jane - Today the beach is heaving with people - in the rain I get it to myself :)

  3. It looks beautiful. Since my sister moved to Wales it is a country that is growing on me, even if it rains a lot!

    1. At the moment the weather is wonderful - and I saw on twitter that someone has just completed the walk around the whole of the coast. I wouldn't have the stamina.

  4. Evonne, you're bringing back memories for me. We used to walk on the beaches, Whitmore Bay and Porthkerry and Watch Tower in particular. Rivers and mountains rule in these parts - no ten mins to the sea for us! I love the new book cover, by the way. Heck, have I just let another secret out?

    1. Hi Sandra And the Knap - Sunday afternoon walk and coffee or icecream in Bindles?

      I think the secret of the cover is beginning to get out ...
