I’m delighted to be hosting Sunday Stills for Terry Webster Schrandt during August while she takes a blogging break.
This week’s theme is Beautiful Beaches and we have lots to choose from in the UK. I love spending time by the ocean. The beach heading the post is Bamburgh in Northumberland, overlooked by the impressive castle.
The photos above and below are images of Porthminster Beach at St Ives in Cornwall. We stayed there many times when we lived down south.
We also spent a lot of time at Carbis Bay which is just down the coast a little way from St Ives.
The beach at Rhos on Sea is much closer to home and great for building sand castles.
Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast has a beach of two halves—sand and pebbles.
On the pebble beach the ‘stone man’ as we used to call him, could often be seen balancing stones at incredible angles.
And the lovely stretch of Newborough Beach and sand dunes on Angelsey.
At low tide Llanddwyn Island is accessible on foot from Newborough. Llanddwyn translates to the Church of St Dwynwen. She is the Welsh patron saint of lovers and lived during the 5th century AD. The legend goes that after a failed romance and to avoid an arranged marriage Dwynwen retreated to Llanddwyn and lived the life of a hermit.
