Fish and Chips for Tea

One of the many things I love about living where I do, is the close proximity of the beach. It's only a 15 minute drive, so on nice evenings we get in the car and head off.

This is what we did last night, stopping en route to pick up some fish and chips. Fish and chips always taste better by the sea, it must be the salty tang in the air and the fresh breeze off the sea that compliments them so well.

We left home as the sun was getting low on the horizon, so by the time we got to the beach, it was almost setting. The sky was a gorgeous colour, all pink and orange, and there were pink and turquoise stripes reflected in the water. The tide was in and the sea was very still, just gently lapping on the rocks, and the gulls were high overhead winging there way towards the north Devon coast.

It was lovely.

Here's a photo hubby took of the sun setting on the beach last year.

Ooh how lovely, I do envy you living so near to the coast. I dream of living by the sea, I think it's because I'm a Piscean :)

We're about 2 hours drive from the coast here so it's not something we do very often, the river in the local park just doesn't have the same appeal!
My Mother moved to Cornwall 10 years ago but time and money prevents us from visiting as often as we'd like.Hoping to get down there this year sometime.

What a gorgeous photo - we are lucky living next to the sea. Fish and chips does taste better there too! Have a good Easter!
