An Impromptu Trip To The Beach

As I mentioned in my last post we had an impromptu trip to the coast to photograph my rockpool bowl. When we got up the sun was shining, I had hinted that I would like to photograph my rockpool by the sea. OH must have heard because he suggested we head off to the coast.

I’m always looking for seaside inspiration so I made a picnic and we headed to one of my favourite places on the Solway coast.

The first thing I noticed when we parked up was the light streaming through the trees illuminating the bluebells.
.I had to get a closer look..The air was filled with a strange but not unpleasant mixture of the sweet scent of bluebells combined with wild garlic. This took me straight back to my childhood days..I love coming to Auchencairn as the beaches on this side of the Solway have an abundance of cockle shells. We don’t get these on our side, but we do get a lot of driftwood..The woodland path meanders along the shore..We dipped down onto the beach where we could, there was plenty of inspiration everywhere..On a sunny day you could think you were in Cornwall..


.The path took us up through fields to Balcary Point. I love the trees at this time of year when they aren’t in full leaf , and cast some lovely shadows..Wild flowers in profusion, I think I might use this for a thread painting sometime..The path follows the cliff edge, I’m glad it wasn’t windy..The path got closer to the edge so we sat here for a while before retracing our steps..It was a little hazy but you can just see home in the distance.IMG_0992A wonderful day out full of beauty and inspiration. Thank you my lovely 🙂
