On the Beach
I purchased a little, open fronted beach tent two summers ago; it has been such a blessing – I can now spend quality time by the seaside in inclement weather.

My sister joined me, and we spent several hours relaxing, savouring our picnic and listening to the sounds of the ocean.
I enjoyed sitting on a mighty rock settee…

Finally, we packed my tent and headed home. I felt quite rejuvenated.
