By the Seashore

Happy Sunday!
I hope the sun is smiling down on you ...

Today at


The prompt is brought to us by the lovely Robyn who lives in Australia
I guess as it's summer here ... It's winter over there
 Robyn has given us a great prompt

By The Seashore

This is a recent shot I took when we were away a few weeks ago, staying in Santa Ponca Majorca


How I love that view ... So peaceful ... 
There's something so breathtaking about blue green waters, the 'woosh' of the waves and the sunlight dancing down ... 

On the island of Majorca there are lots of celebrities who are lucky enough to have homes overlooking the seashore


This belongs to 'Top Model'Claudia Schiffer

 Seashores vary from place to place ... This is part of the Seashore in Cornwall where surfing is a popular sport


Those rocks are huge ... and just as I was taking a shot ... This guy flew in ... hence the blur


Well, the Seashore is their territory...

Being an island we are surrounded by the sea ... One local Seashore that was always popular when I was a child was New Brighton ... we would get the Mersey ferry across and spend the whole day there ...
In it's hey day it was amazing ... a huge funfair, a big outdoor swimming baths (that I spent a lot of time in) and a rocky beach ... A child's paradise ... As I remember summers were always hot in those days ... But the Brits don't worry too much about walking on a beach in cold weather


Even if there's no one around ... The kids still see it as a treat... Especially Ross and Sophia


Whereas in Cadiz ... The heat is so fierce that on Sunday's it seems everyone takes to the seashore ... The roads are empty - the shore full


By midday there isn't a space left on that shoreline ... and mid afternoon the tide starts to creep in .... bit by bit the bathers move to the left until there are hundreds of people all crammed into one place ... reluctant to relinquish the day ... It's a funny sight


Well, these are my photos for the prompt ... We'd love to see yours at


Come and link up with us ...

Have a lovely day

Beautiful seashore shots Ros, it's always nice to take a stroll along the water, whether it be the sea or a lake. Enjoy your Sunday! Ira x

I can totally relate to that! the water pushing through the people moving about not wanting to leave...there's just something so refreshing about the seashore! and wow, those amazing boulders and I want Miss Claudia's house, LOL!

Hi Ros!
So lovely photos, thanks for them! Today i was very lucky: i planned to write a post about the seashore in Scheveningen in the next week, but then a i saw Our Beautiful World ;-)

You're right, my last Our Beautiful World was more an insect than an animal, but a i have no cat or dog of my own and so i did my gardenanimals ...

Have a happy week ... Frauke

I love how that seagull is "towering" over everything! And seeing the kids on the beach really makes me want to go out and build sand castles...

I've lived on the coast all my life but it's fun to see it in the perspective of other countries. I imagine it is quite funny to watch all those people scuttle to the left. LOL. Thanks for sharing your pics! Hugs!

Lovely, calm and peaceful, what a sight!

Diane said...

I certainly have enjoyed your photos for "Our Beautiful World"....so fun to see and read about other places I have never been (and probably) will never get to go...but I can at least enjoy these photos...however after reading you post about the ferry crossing, I think I have the song "Ferry Across The Mersey" stuck in my brain...lol!!! Not sure when you are leaving...but have a wonderful vacation!!

Beautiful photo's, Ros, I too really love the beach, but a 6 hour drive, takes up too much of the day, so I don't see the beach that often. I know what you mean about forgotten holidays. only 1 of four children sent a card and of course she lives here. I don't much think they will care after David is gone. They are too busy either celebrating or living their lives. We raised a selfish generation! Hope your Monday is a beautiful day!

Thanks for sharing all your wonderful seashore pics Ros! I love looking at all of them :)
