Treasured Memories at the Beach — Lens-Artists Challenge #206

Hi all 😃 My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Aletta from nowathome: Treasures; this is also my entry for Terri’s Sunday Stills.

A lot of my treasured memories are time spent at the beach with my wife, Susan. We met whilst both on meteorological courses in the Navy, at Culdrose in Cornwall. We both have an affinity for the sea & spent alot of time walking or body-boarding at the many beaches.

Broughty Ferry Beach

Following on from my last post about beach art, here are a few more photos from down on the beach. Although the weather was not the best, this is still a great place to be. It was quiet and peaceful but this is probably more to do with the timing of our mid-week visit and the showery weather.
