#writephoto : The Beach.

Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

It is Thursday afternoon and time for KL’s photo prompt. As KL says it’s June, the weather has decided to be kind and we are slowly coming out of lockdown. Many people are thinking of Summer holidays and the beach.

So, what does the beach mean to you, your characters or your childhood memories?

For visually challenged writersthe image shows 2 large pairs of wellies and a child pair of wellies on a sandy beach.

At the Beach – Image by KL Caley.

Mummy, Dad and me
In our wellies on the sand
Windy but we are grand
Happy times for us to play
I’ll remember all my days.

Mum and Dad took us all to the beach every year.There were six of us, and it was always special. Dad used to roll his trousers up and take us in the sea . We used to play games, eat cockles and skim stones .

We have sat on beaches with the children and been frozen! We have sat on beaches and fried. We have travelled abroad and at home but of all the beaches we have visited it the ones with the children that have been the best.

Rain or cold never worried us we had kagools and wellies! Today I have lots of memories to look back on. Freezing at Bournemouth while the boys played happily in the sand followed by hot chocolate. Getting burned in Zanté with the lads, older splashing out in the sea cold beers all round later.

Climbing the rocks and fishing in the rock pool what delights we would find. Then there is the Dorset coast where we could find lots of fossils and make up all sorts of stories about the animals that where now dead and trapped in the rocks.

Best of all was skimming stones, we all loved doing this and whiled away many an hour at the beach. Now I see our grandchildren doing the same . Happy Days.

    Lovely memories Willow. The Dorset coast is indeed full of fossils, and sharks teeth!

    What wonderful memories, dear Willow!
    I’m now thinking of all the beaches we spent with our boys when they were younger… and the few times with my sisters and parents.

    I think it’s a great idea to write true life experiences based upon a photograph prompt like this, and what a wonderful story you offered.

    Happy weekend Willowdot.

    Oooh this is such a wonderful post Willow. So nostalgic. I have done these things too both with my own parents/grandparents and now with my children. Amazing that despite all these changing times, a wonderful day at the beach remains just that and still brings so much joy across the generations and you’ve captured it beautifully. Thank you for joining in the challenge:
