Estuary revisited

It was a beautiful day today so we went back down to the Goatwalk on the Exe Estuary . The afternoon sun ,although low in the sky ,was still warm. The tide was in so no curlews but the sun caste a brilliant shaft of light across the water, cutting the estuary in two with a golden pathway which seemed to invite one to travel to some mystical land beyond the horizon . Then the sun sank with a silent sigh behind the distant hills leaving a turquoise sky tinged with amber and pink . Dusk fell on the darkening waters of the estuary and we returned home with the anticipation of a buttered crumpet for tea .

  • Hi georgepa

    Wonderful! I love your writing.

    Love maddy

  • Lovely. Thanks.

  • Our weather is still warm and sunny here and, after a huge storm in the middle of last month, our beach is littered with driftwood which makes wonderful firewood. So each afternoon we go down to the beach in the car. I collect driftwood while Chris sits on a bench and watches the sun set over the hills along the coast. Never fails to relax both of us. Something about the warmth, sun, sea and incredibly fresh air. Unfortunately there aren't any crumpets!

  • How wonderful am sitting here ready to start my day with a fantastic veiw in my minds eye. Will have to describe the scene to Brian as I am getting him washed and dressed.

    thank you for letting us join you on your amble along the goat walk Janexx

  • Hi Jill thanks for that - I am /was / would still like to be an antique dealer but sadly I have had to give up . I have tried to keep my hand in but its really not feasible but I will keep writing as I find it helps me unwind at the end of the day and if other people don't mind my odd ramblings then I am happy .

  • Are you keeping a journal? You are a fine writer and a journal would be a beautiful book which would help many other people. Think about it. It helps to write things down and it helps with the feelings and it helps others down the road (as well as doctors).

  • I will think about it because no I am not keeping a journal and I do find it helpful to write things down . I think all our shared experiences whether sad ,painful or happy can help each other through this incredibly difficult period in our lives . I more than welcome hearing what others are doing in their daily lives as one can be both encouraged and hopefully encouraging . This really is the most supportive site one could wish for. George

  • Jill, I totally agree with you - I think my Dad writes beautifully & sharing these experiences could help others x

  • He really does. My husband is (was) a writer and I have years of experience editing his books. I'd encourage your father to write nothing fancy just keep doing what he is doing in journal form. I think he'd enjoy it to.

  • Ahhhh! Sounds wonderfully serene. Thank you for sharing.

  • Wonderful memory for you both.
