Ocean Blue

Summertime calls for evenings spent strolling along the beach and with the superbly sunny weather we've been having recently, I couldn't pass up the chance to get out and soak up the sun, dip my toes in the sea and listen to the seagulls calling as they soared across the sky!

The tide was out, the sun was high in the sky and the rockpools were free to wander amongst. I spotted plenty of crabs and lots of adorable tiny, speckled fish which were burying themselves in the sand - the camouflage level is amazing for those little fish!

The sunshine was reflecting off of the waves in beautiful, dazzling patterns. It was lovely to take a moment and stand in the surf while the waves rolled in. 

I could quite happily have stood there all day just watching the sun play on the water's surface. Beautiful!

The sound of the waves was a welcome one after a long day, and there were several boats sailing further out in the distance. It would have been the perfect day for it as there was a cool breeze with clear views out across the horizon.

Now that it's summer I'll definitely be coming back as the days get hotter and longer, especially as I want to spend some more time in amongst the rockpools with my camera. There were lots of interesting shells and pebbles which I didn't get any shots of as I was too busy enjoying having a wander so that's definite;y on my to-do list for this summer!

I'm linking up with the lovely Jen for Photo Friday today.

Have a lovely Friday and weekend!
