Winter Sunshine at the Seaside


It's been a rainy month or two! I think December was the wettest month on record in the UK and there have been severe floods in several areas of the country. We have, however, had some lovely sunny days recently so we've been making the most of it and going on seaside walks for some fresh sea air and a play in the sand/pebbles. During this time of year there aren't many people around so we often have the whole section of beach to ourselves! The clouds in the sky were stunning this day and it's the same trip we took this Silent Sunday photo that produced an amazing silhouette. There is something unique about the sea during the winter. The sun is lower in the sky, the sea is rough, the chill is in the air, the wind can be fierce and we are wrapped up in several layers. But there is that anticipation that Spring is just around the corner and soon the beach will be filled with tourists and people taking a dip in the sea. I recently came across this quote on Alice & Amelia's Blog (NewYoungMum) on her post about Finding Summer in Winter in which she also shares some recent photos at the seaside.

"In the depth of Winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."
- Albert Camus 

This resonates with me more than ever before. Since having a little one we have been out nearly every single day since he was born, come rain or shine. I definitely prefer the warmer weather but have learnt to appreciate these beautiful quiet cold winter days for what they are. I've been taking my camera out a lot and share these photos. Toddler has taken to jumping off the seaside steps and I managed to capture him mid-flight, he's a funny boy :-)




Have you been out in Winter sun? Would love to hear about your adventures.

  2. We never go to the seaside in Winter but seeing photos like yours makes me wish that on a sunny day we could just wrap up warm and drive to the coast. Beautiful photos x

  5. I love going to the beach in the winter, almost more than in the summer! There is something about the big open spaces, fresh air and smell of the sea. Lovely photos x #countrykids

  8. I love the beach in winter too, like you it is much quieter here in Cornwall with just the local dog walkers and surfers enjoying the sands. We will be up your way in half term and no doubt the kids will insist on a Brighton day to play on the pebble beach and go down the pier. Huge respect for you getting out most days whatever time of year, I was always the same, it is so much easier with boys to give them the freedom and space of outdoors for a hour or so each day. thank you so much for sharing your lovely photos with me on #CountryKids

  9. Great mid jump shot. Must be so nice to head down to the beach in all weathers. We just landlocked and there's not that many interesting places to walk apart from just fields which I find really boring #countrykids

  10. Fantastic jumping photos! We love the sea in Winter. It generally means we have the beach (mostly) to ourselves and the energy of the wind and the crashing waves is uplifting. And best of all is warming up with a hot chocolate ;-) Jenni x

  13. Lovely photos. We've had horrible weather here so we've been stuck indoors mostly. Can't wait for the warmer (or even drier) weather to come in so that we can get out and about more. You're lucky you stay so close to such a beautiful beach :)
