In these days of writing and spending more time on the computer at work I have been more sedentary in my late 40’s and early 50’s than at any other time in my life. Some of this I also attribute to having moved away from the coast within the last 10 years.
When I lived within 15 minutes walk of the sea I spent many happy hours walking on the sand. I could go walking here but there’s not many places, that close, that really inspire me more than my garden so I’m happy spending more time at home creating and writing which is great for my mind, just not so great for my body shape.
If you asked me to pick a place that inspires, makes my heart sing and where I could walk for miles take me to a sandy beach with some dunes. That would be nice. Some beach huts and few people would be even better. I’ve been recently and would happily return.
I do like to be beside the seaside.
