Wild Waves

Heading to the coast might be the thing furthest from your mind come winter, but I can assure you that if you venture down to the coastline on a cold, winter’s day not only will you feel completely rejuvenated by the bracing winds and sea salt air, but you’ll be able to see the waves crashing and swelling with the tide and the wind, and it’s an amazing sight to see.

My Mum and I finally stopped off along the coast here in Workington last week, and found the waves wilder than I’ve seen them for a while now! The wind was so strong you could have easily leant back into the breeze and let it hold you there for a while. I loved standing along the pebbled shoreline with my camera, snapping away, though my fingers were frozen by the end of it! I wanted to share those photos with you today as we head into winter now, and also wish everyone a very happy 1st of December – it’s Christmas month!

Beaches are definitely not just for the summer!

It was amazing to see the sky change colour as the sun set too, and made for some interesting colours on the surface of the water as the clouds and the sun moved about. Will definitely be heading back here more often from now on!

Linking up with Jen for Photo Friday.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    I really like that first picture with the dark, lowering skies over the headland (St Bees?). You remind me that I’ve not been to the coast for a while, though I often go in winter as N Norfolk gets some interesting birds at this time of year, including spectacular flocks of wild geese. Take care.

      Ah thank you so much John. This is Workington, so a little further up than St Bees, but still just as nice. Yes I’ve heard that areas like Norfolk are some of the best places for spotting some of the birds there during winter – must try and go some day! Hope you’re well!

      I was the same for a long time, I always wanted to be somewhere warmer, but having moved to the coast I can’t resist going out there more often and you’re right, it’s great to visit, even in winter! Hopefully you can get out to the coast this winter. Thank you for the lovely comments!

    Hi Tasha: it was great to hear from you again, I hope that all is well with you. A visit to the ocean is good at any time of the year in my book. I have just returned from Cuba as you know where the beaches are wonderful and the climate benign – as long as you are not there in hurricane season I guess! have a great week. David
