A Perfect Sunday Afternoon
This may look to be just a picture of sand, but it`s one of my favourite places to walk, and I went there yesterday afternoon. There were lots of families there enjoying it too - some just walking, some playing cricket on the sand, a few digging sandcastles, some sunbathing, others picnicing - all enjoying the open air, warm sun and the space. And - what joy - not the sound of a single person talking on a mobile phone! There are just miles and miles of sand and its very peaceful. It really is a place to feel close to God in creation
I walked for about an hour and then became aware that the sun was disappearing and the blue sky had an ominous black cloud coming up, so I made my way back to the car.
Leaving the car park a short time later, it began to rain, so we drove to another village where we could sit by the water. Whilst sitting there, although it was still lightly raining the sun came out, and I found another delight.....
..... to my right was a beautiful rainbow - so I just had to get out of the car and take some photo`s of it. It was a perfect arc, I could see both ends, but unfortunately it was too big to get the full arc on a photo. This is the best I could do.
