the sea

Hello! I finally feel as though I have a bit of structure in my life again, with two new jobs starting in one day (cake and music, what more could a girl want?) and being able to escape for a couple of hours for a lovely sea walk with family friends.

I feel so lucky to live near the sea, I don't know what I would do if I lived somewhere where I was completely land-locked - I do think I take it for granted being able to simply walk to the seafront and spend a while reflecting on the beach. 
 Our walk took us along the wall of the harbour, and as beautiful as it was, quite a long drop from the sea itself, which felt very dramatic when the waves picked up and came crashing back down over our poor friend's clothes and shoes!
Even though it was only for a couple of hours, there was something so enchanting about the sea and its rhythm against the concrete that made it feel as though we were there nearly all day - something I must not forget if I feel that everything gets too much. The sea will always be there to bring me back to calm.

Listen to: 'Such Great Heights' - Iron & Wine
