Sometimes the Sea Wears Wonderful Colours

peering through the grasses to the sea

A mellow walk on the beach. A moment to catch our breath.

through the grasses to the sea

We start high up on the dunes and push our way through the long grasses, side-stepping to avoid the many large snails that live there, and then we walk out on to the sand.

the sea

We stare out over the wonderful, wonderful sea, that is showing green today. We stand and breathe the sweet sea air, and feel the gentle breeze on our faces.

It doesn’t stay bright and gentle for long. As is so often the way in Scotland, the weather is subject to swift change. By the time we leave the beach, the wind, a breeze no more, is swirling dark clouds over Tiger Hill, the largest dune on the skyline.

The star of today’s little blog has been: Fraserburgh beach!

And on another starry subject, there is a beautiful 5 star review of THE MERMAID AND THE BEAR from Shelley Wilson up on GoodReads! See it here.

And, just today, The Press and Journal published an article on the book here.

Only a week to go until release now… I needed that breath at the beach! Let’s end on a watery quote from the book… though this scene takes place in a loch, not the sea.

  1. Love your photos of Scotland! I’m curious. What have you found to be the pros/cons of writing in first person as opposed to third-person omniscient?

  2. Well. I came here for the photos but stayed for the book. I didn’t know you had one due out. And in little over than a week! Congratulations! Off to check that out! Cheers.

      1. Must have been about 8 years ago I think. The Thai Tourist Board were looking to show off their gorgeous beaches but there were just too many people in the shots, so, I believe they lifted one from a Scottish beach. Alas, I cant recall which one, maybe the west coast?

  3. Gorgeous beach and beautiful words. Best of luck for the release I stumbled upon the blog today and loved it. Would be glad if you could review some of my work.
