Life by the Sea with Aqua Residing – The Cornish Life

Generally it’s laborious to like life by the ocean.

I’ll most likely learn this again in Summer time and inform myself to shush and cease moaning, however proper now, we’ve had just about 2 weeks straight of rain, drizzle, wind and storms right here in Cornwall, as Winter has nicely and actually arrived (you will have seen much less posts lately on this weblog… and that might be why!).

We communicate to our family and friends in different areas of the nation, and whereas sure, the climate isn’t implausible wherever within the UK right now of 12 months, the quantity of rain and storms confronted by the likes of London, or York, is considerably greater than right here in Cornwall. Generally we have a look at the long-range climate forecast and there’s not a single dry day on there…

It may be miserable, however that is the sacrifice we make to stay by the ocean, the place the climate is wilder because of the shoreline and our southerly location. Generally, life by the ocean simply is:

Rain for weeks on finish

Countryside too muddy to stroll in

Automobiles layered with moist sand inside

Harsh wind that stings your face

Smelly moist and muddy paws in the home

Denims soaked via and hung as much as dry

Waters too tough to swim or paddle in

However at occasions like these, we have to remind ourselves that life by the ocean can also be:

Discovering quiet hidden coves

Sundown views from the coast path

Public open area that the canines adore

Rockpooling and discovering new creatures

Consuming fish & chips with a sea breeze in your hair

Catching a water taxi to a brand new city or place

Leaping off rocks with a splash

Seashore BBQs with mates

Photoshoots within the dunes

Paddling out to catch waves

Swimming in sea swimming pools

Listening to bands with the ocean as a backdrop

Exploring the ocean by kayak or boat

Searching for perspective with a visit to the cliffs

…I’m fairly certain there’s extra optimistic issues than damaging. And we should at all times remind ourselves how fortunate we’re to have the ability to stay right here – to stroll out the entrance door and discover ‘the sting’ of the nation inside 20 minutes, and to get pleasure from every little thing that coastal residing brings.

Then as soon as she did, she ended up operating across the seashore with the complete disk in entrance of her face so she couldn’t see the place it was going – so humorous!
