Trespassing

Sometimes, it's just too much to resist. Park up, intending to walk on the beach, but find ourselves lured into the private holiday chalet site, enticed by the little woodland walk that runs along behind. Walk confidently, as if residents, but feeling slightly furtive and guilty.

Hardly any of the chalets are in use at present, and we meet almost no one. Two long rows of neat little buildings, facing either out over the beach, or across the sunlit fields to the hills with their castle and folly.

Take photos. Reach the end, and walk back to the car along the beach, the sun setting behind us.



















Except for birds, the beach is bafflingly empty. Where is everybody?






Just us; we are privileged to have this lovely beach to ourselves.


But people have been here before.


And then, swallows swooping above and around us, we go home.

Love that long legged couple! Wonder who made that heart for the two of you?

I love the bird prints in the sand! I always try to photo them, too. You are so lucky to live near a beach.

Lucille said...

That is very touching.

A lovely trip to your part of the world - and an empty beach, too. Absolute perfection.

How wonderful to have the Companion with you as you savor the views. Love the photos, especially the footprints and your shadows!

How wonderful!

I need that bench. No, make that three of them. As long as I'm wishing, might as well go for it...

Enchanting stuff. I can't get over your hawthorn blossom - none here yet but at least the swallows are back though there must be precious little food for them in the wintry chill.

Dreadful behaviour, you'd never catch me sneaking around taking photos (ahem...).
Perfect beach-without anyone on it except the wildlife. Looks like it was a lovely day.

June said...

Oh, what a nice little enchanted place!
The picture after The Big Good Sitting Tree looks like here, with the hill rolling up and away.
Nice. Just nice.

What a special place! The sandy photos are good but I particularly like the lake photos with those amazingly clear reflections.
You must have had a lovely day.

Frances said...

Lovely photos, especially the one of the reeds. You are teasing us with your " nearly photos" of the companion!
Flossie managed to stay out of the pics....she must have been there?

So that is where the sun is - shining on new love.

Beautiful pictures.

colleen said...

Something magical going on here...

hasenschneck said...

Gwen Buchanan said...

It is like this magic place was created just for the two of you... Looks like romance to me..
