Beachy days

15th July
Tearing the happy farmer away from his various projects on the farm is a bit like trying to strip woodchip wallpaper off an old plastered wall, pretty impossible. However Sunday arrived and unfortunately for the happy farmer he had no choice whatsoever when his happy family made him abandon all farm projects and head to Saligo Bay.

It did take most of the day to drag him away from the farm, but in the late afternoon we unloaded the jeep at the beach and walked over the hills to see the Atlantic rollers breaking on the sandy bay.  The rich aroma of steaks being cooked on the camp fire, which our friends had made from gathered driftwood, mingled with the salty sea spray, made his effort more than worthwhile. You can’t beat sitting in the sun, eating warm steak and listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore …bliss.

Much later we dragged ourselves from the beach feeling full and satisfied.

Until next time….

Hello Rosie Posie,
Your beaches look so beautiful and so does the scenery, not unlike mine, but yours is very dramatic.
Are you still painting? I saw the lovely coloured sunset, and remembered you captured it in a painting.

I am still painting, I find it so relaxing and satisfying....not very good at making time to paint though. I love your artwork.

Amazing photos Rosie, love the ones of the sea. Hope you will begin to write about the here and now when you feel it is right. Lovely to be in touch again.

Oh Rosie, I would like to be beamed immediately to your beach! Those photos will enlighten my days when the nights get longer again. Is that now recent, in this summer, or is it from the past? I like also your new background on top! And the dog, lol.

Elizabeth and Bayou, Lovely to hear from you both....the photos are recent, but the blog is in the past, although it could well have been from this summer as I managed to peel the happy farmer from his labours to join us at Saligo once again. I hope to catch up with the present soon, but feel it would be a shame to miss out all of the adventures and stories that have unfolded over the past few years, however I have blogged a lot less frequently so it should n't take too long.
