    The only thing better than a beach? A beach at sunset after a good day.

    It's about a mile down the road.
    This is the view from our land, looking west across Cardigan Bay to the Llŷn Peninsula.

    Gorgeous Crowan! My view of the sea has a main road running in front of it (but I still love it)

    I love the sound of breaking waves. We were in Plymouth Friday and there was a painting in a shop widow of the sun sparkling on the waters along a deserted shore line with a dingy on the beach. The artist had captured it so well that if you closed your eyes you could almost hear the waves breaking on the beach. It takes real talent to add another dimension to a photo or painting. Some people really have that talent.

    Can you see it where you are? It's not visible in the UK, but I watched some on line.

    How wonderful Zandalee! I'm really envious! ;)

    Years ago, we had a partial eclipse in the UK and I went outside into our church garden with our bookshop librarian (who just happened to be a physicist.) He had made a paper/cardboard structure with a pinhole "lens" and we watched the sun's reflection on the paving (so we didn't have to buy the special glasses to protect our eyes). What I remember was how, as it became dusk, all the birds stopped singing - a little bit eerie - and then it became very cold, an almost ethereal feeling of peace and the thrill of seeing the ring with its sparkling diamond and then finally, the joy of seeing the light and feeling the warmth again. You can just imagine how shocking eclipses must have seemed to early man.

    Love and peace,

    Judy

    Yes, I agree how schocking must have been to earlier civilations. We use protect eye gear..the air and environment was so still but wonderful. Felt so blessed to experience this opportunity.
