Getting my feet wet

Dipping my toes in…
Always tentative and somewhat nervous – though of what I have no idea
Crashing in, it swirls around my ankles
Glistening bubbles chattering away at my toes
A momentary gasp. Cold!
But then the ocean and my feet part company
And we are left on the sand…
Damp and invigorated.
I step closer to the deep
Then step back again
Waiting … waiting…
Waiting for the next wave

    These pics take me back so much to Sunshine Bay! So funny to watch the birds deciding whether or not to go in…. Love your use of colour.

  • Oh Francesca, What a lovely post. Yours always are, but some go right to my water/sea/beach-loving soul as this one certainly did.
