Day 92, Reason 92: Today I feel so happy that I was well enough to venture out into the world again.
This week hasn’t been the most eventful of weeks and my health has been somewhat temperamental. But, I have continued to feel positive and happy each day and, this morning, I woke with a little more energy and a longing to get out of the house.
“A coffee at the beach?” suggested my Mum, which seemed like the perfect idea to me. We ventured a little further along the coast than the beach we usually go to and sat outside in the glorious sunshine at a beach hut cafe. We had a spectacular view of the deep, blue sky, the ocean, a sandy cove and the fabulous rock you can see in the picture above. I thought it looked like a wave, poised to crash into the ocean and my Mum thought it to be a strange sea creature about to take a dive into the watery depths. Very intellectual discussion, I know – I like her version best!
Although, it was quite breezy, out of the wind it was really rather hot and I was surprised and happy to see so many people on the beach sunbathing and enjoying the beautiful day. It really feels like summer is just around the corner. Yippee!
This part of the beach is further along from the cove where we were sitting
I can’t wait to for my first proper outing to the beach this year, but it wasn’t quite warm enough for me yet. I did, however, go for a wander down to the sea – proof that I actually set foot on the sand, below:
I also discovered these beautiful flowers and succulent plants growing from the rocks that surrounded the small cove and couldn’t resist taking a photo, albeit with my phone (as are all the others,) so not the best picture quality.
Having spent so many years of my life rarely being well enough to go out of the house, I value and enjoy every second I spend out. Today was no exception – I felt so happy and joyful, like I am finally making my return into the big, wide world. Hello world! It’s been a while! 🙂
