Today won’t be a post full of words. I know I always talk too much 😉
Today is simply because I’ve been craving the beach.
When I lived in St Andrews it was so easy, it was right there if I needed fresh air or alone time or to take a look at the amazing beauty that is the North Sea. When I moved to Edinburgh I was afraid I was going to miss it – and I did (which is ironic since I have now moved to central Scotland).
One day – before I got my current job – I was a bit down and the Brit decided to cheer me up by bringing me to Portobello beach. Portobello is about 3 miles from the city centre and so we took a bus for a few minutes. I really liked it around that neighbourhood, I thought it was super cute.
The beach in itself is nice, very long, full of children and dogs running around. You see almost all the way to North Berwick and you see Fife.
Every time I get to the beach I feel so tiny and like the world is balanced again. Like I have enough air to be able to keep going. It’s freeing really.
It also helped that on the day the sky was just amazing – all the colours and all the shades. We showed up there around 15-16h so the sun was starting to set over the horizon.
Days like that and sights like that make me feel peaceful and are definitely moments that are welcome in a stressful and busy life.
Do you ever crave for a beach moment?xx
