“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Being close to nature, blowing away the cobwebs and clearing the mind!

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

To me Rockcliffe Beach represents both calmness and well being on a warm sunny day walking over the sand to Rough Island, and excitement in Nature’s power when the wind is up and the waves are crashing on the rocks.

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

Beaches conjure up so many happy family holidays. Sunbathing, swimming, sandcastles, sailing, cricket, walking, wildlife etc. Blue skies, sea and calm water or grey, windy and crashing waves! All the different moods of nature and the wonderful feeling of having cobwebs blown away and being completely refreshed in mind and body. Sometimes it is the peacefulness of gently lapping waves on the shore which are sophorific and give rise to deep thoughts. Other times it is just relaxing to walk near the sea and watch others enjoying themselves. We love living near the sea and really enjoy holidays that involve beaches!
