In my element

Now that I’m back home from my holiday in Ireland, I have time to catch up on all my online stuff and process the photos I took. I don’t do normal holiday photos, but I do do pictures of the sea.

One of the loveliest things we did was spend a day at my parents’ caravan next to this beautiful beach where I remember seemingly endless days playing, exploring, swimming and rowing boats when I was a child. Caravans are not what I remember them being though! The one my parents have now is bigger than the apartment my husband and I lived in when we first moved to Edinburgh. It has double glazing, central heating and a huge fridge freezer, all things our first apartment in Edinburgh didn’t have. I feel like if I lived in a warmer country, I’d be 100% happy to live in a caravan all year round.

We were so lucky with the weather last week! The ferry crossings in both directions were perfectly calm. I never object to rolling waves but it’s great to be able to sit out on deck and soak up the sun. I hadn’t played with Snapseed, my favourite mobile photo editing app, for ages so I had some fun with these two pictures of the Scottish coast. We were blessed with some very photogenic clouds.

Because I spent so much time sitting on deck, I noticed a lot of details of the boat itself that it’s hard to pay attention to when the wind is whipping your hair around your face. I had my phone with my anyway, so I snapped a few bits of boat too.

I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into editing my Camp NaNoWriMo novella so I’ll be rambling about writing again here very soon.
