We drove along the coast heading towards La Libertad to find accommodation by the sea, but they were either dirty, musty smelling, too expensive or seemed shady. The streets were nice though! They had a cute aquatic theme going on:
Looks like a good part of a great trip!

…and by dip I mean I dipped my toes in for 3 seconds and then ran away.
Sometimes it’s just nice to get away from home, and a visit to Bournemouth to stay with my Grandmother couldn’t have come at a better time!
So it’s Janary 2nd…and where do I find myself? That’s right, in the sea.
Interesting way to start the year!

My brother just came out of the sea and was about to slip on his sandals.
I had taken pictures of every imaginable thing on the beach and somehow I myself had not one good photo so I thought if I have to look ugly, might as well look crazy.
Neither … and very nice shots!

My entire family was bathing in the sea and I was the only person left behind to take care of the stuff that they left behind. As beautiful the sea and the sky are, they can get pretty boring as well. So I decided to take a photograph with a different perspective and VOILA!
Love the perspective on this one! Great photo!

Hope those toes don’t burn!

“Dabbling my toes in the Mediterranean outside of Napflion, Greece.”
“Taken in the Côte d’Azur in France. While lying on the beach and watching the sea, I decided to exercise my toes a little! “
Good idea and very beautiful background!

“The warmest and clearest day so far and off to the beach again. Cala del Cuervo is an idyllic little sandy bay next to Las Negras and just a short walk from the village.
A hot Sunday morning and a still, clear Mediterranean but it is very much out of season now so there were only a few other people on the beach.

Beautiful there and great shot!

“El Nido is located about 238 kilometers northwest of Puerto Princesa. Most of the islands in El Nido have pockets of fine white sand beaches and coves – perfect for sunbathing and picnic lunches.
With over 40 beaches to discover, El Nido, Palawan is definitely THE destination for island hopping. On our first day, we were welcomed with the sight of enchanting lagoons with tranquil turquoise-green water and caves that can actually take you to hidden, white sandy beaches. Perfect. Absolutely, stunningly PERFECT.
If you really love nature (like me), then El Nido is the perfect place for you. Since I couldn’t remember the names of some of the Islands, I suggest you visit the place yourself. You won’t regret it.
El Nido is indeed a magical place. A gift of nature, so to speak. No wonder why Alex Garland got his inspiration to write his first book, “The Beach” in one of the islands surrounding Bacuit Bay. “
Sounds wonderful there and great shot!

“Ever wanted to walk on water? How about cover yourself head to toe in mud? The Dead Sea is a place where both of those things are possible (well maybe not actually walk, but probably the closest you will get). The Dead Sea, located with Jordan to the East and Israel to the West, is the Earth’s lowest elevation on land and one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water. It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean which can make for some fun floating. But, be careful for any open wounds as the high salt level can become painful.
Some Tips When Heading to The Dead Sea (feel free to add you own by leaving a comment):
• Do not shave in the 24 hours prior to entering
• Do not go in with open wounds.
• Buy some mud. Don’t ask why. Ask why not.
• If you do decide to be the person who thinks that it won’t be so bad to submerge your entire body… you are warned that it isn’t that minor salty taste and feel that you get after sticking your head in the Atlantic.
• If you get salt in your eyes and it burns, DO NOT rub your eyes with your hands that were just picking up salt from the ground!!!
• Rinse Well!

“The longest beach in Réunion is called L’Étang-Salé, which literally means The Salty Pond. Unusually, the sand is a volcanic black and so burning hot during the day that your feet are a painful, blistering red if you manage to walk across it. It’s a popular spot for surfers and I understood why as the waves were particularly immense on the day that I visited the ‘Pond’ with a few of my cousins. They were the kind of strong waves that can pull you out into the sea if you’re not careful, so we sat on the shore and let a few waves lap over us, which inevitably made us feel like silly, carefree children splashing in the water. A day at the beach is always somehow therapeutic, even if this particular day left me with a mass of black sand all over that took an age to wash out! “
Sounds like an interesting and great spot!

“Suspended between heaven and earth in the gestational thrall of the sea. The clouds float below the water’s surface, the sky seems liquid like water. A lovely inversion here. Don’t you think?
It’s a head on shot, as the swimmer glides toward us, between two pieces of land in the distance. The surface of the water bisects the canvas with a delicate horizontal line. The broad field of blue sky and the swath of cloud white water add emphasis to this line. But wait, there’s more. Connect with your finger the lone cloud, the mass of land on the right, finger-like seaweed at the bottom, and the mass of land on the left, finishing again with the blue cloud. You have encircled the swimmer, a circumscription joining these four painted elements.
See references to the womb here — use your imagination (i.e. seaweed placenta). The swimmer at this angle, in a fetal position. However, the image speaks more than ” the ocean is our Mother.” Its the freedom created when your stroke settles into a hypnotic rhythm. You cease to exist like you did on land. This new-found buoyant body, ubiquitous wetness and the sweet salt taste in your mouth, the soft rock of the waves. Plucks you from time and delivers you for the briefest moment to the soul of eternity.
(At least that’s what the guy at the YMCA said) And I thought, “Yeah, but once I was almost killed by that sea. “
Very interesting one!
