I do like to be beside the seaside

I love beaches, but given the choice between the sunbaked Mediterranean or the slightly cold windy British coastline, I would opt for the latter (almost) every time.

It’s probably partly to do with the tendency to romaticise a place that you are far away from, but it’s also a lot to do with the colours of the English seaside and the very British freedom to walk dogs on the coast.

Will the beaches in Scotland be like this? I do hope so.

One thing is for sure, 2011 is shaping up to be an interesting year… Hope you can join us for the journey.

I continue to marvel at the beauty of your pictures Clare! They look like they should be on a card! But I love the colors of the cottages–They don’t have them here on the beach, and I just think there’s something so charming about them all lined up!

Beautiful colourful pictures, i love all the beach huts and the way people do them up so personnal. England at the moment is still very cold and poor Scotland even colder but its a beautiful country. Happy new year to you and i hope the journey ahead is an exciting one for you. Dee x

Beautiful photos. The Scottish beaches are gorgeous, wild, wonderful and often very windy especially in the north.
