NIGHT 372 – THE STORY OF UNS AL WUJUD AND AL WARD FIL AKMAM

Now’s the time to visit the beach during Covid – totally secluded, windy, isolated – a beach is a beach, not only in summer. A chance to be in nature and the great outdoors. Autumn moody skies and seas thinking of Aivazovsky and the ends/edges of the world

We were totally alone and had a blast! Was sad that we couldn’t visit the beach this summer. What is the beach about? Not only sunshine* – you can still build sandcastles, collect shells, go for long walks… The saying that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing, is completely true. We were warm, dry and comfortable while the wind and drizzle rushed around us thanks to proper mountaineering/camping clothes. Good for miniature painters too to look into the far distance.

*although that is a major major part and slightly envious of my students in California!
