#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.

Spinning Cartwheels

Spining Cartwheels

It was the perfect end to one of those perfect days. We had wandered along the beach as far as the eye could see both ways. The joy of being together, happy and whole, had over come the need for the possession of watches or money we were here as just a joint soul.

The light had begun to fade and we had watched the most glorious sun set full of the best colours that God had ever made.Night was falling and slowly the stars were beginning to emerge twinkling like diamonds such a wonderful sight we all started singing.

Such days as these are a precious gift we need to roll up every second and save them for a time when we need that little lift.So rarely do these moments come, that when they are this huge we need to save them for when things are so black you cannot see forward you can bring them forth and fill your minds centrifuge.

we found that crazy bar

It was dark and chilly and we found this crazy bar we had food and drink then we sat out the back where they had built a huge fire . Such joy we shared I shall never forget. It was so long ago and yet it is etched in my mind. So when I am at my lowest I shall think of then and remember life at it’s best.
