Summer at the Beach

May your time be filled with relaxing sunsets, cool drinks and sand between your toes. — Unknown

At the beach, just another day in paradise! — Unknown
My life is like a stroll upon the beach, As near the ocean’s edge as I can go. Henry David Thoreau 
I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm. — Anon
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.  Jacques Cousteau   
The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some greater good. — Brian Tracy  
Either you decide to stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean. — Christopher Reeve  
 May your trails be crooked, winding, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. — Edward Abbey  
Today is a smooth white seashell, hold it close and listen to the beauty of the hours.  Unknown 
Known is a drop, unknown is an Ocean. — Tamil Proverb 
In every drop of water, there is a story of life.  Leena Arif

    Hi Ann!

    I have repinned several of these photographs on pinterest from your ‘Life at beach’.. Never knew the clicks were by you. As I am brought up near the sea..I feel connected with sand, salty water and that fragrance in the air.

    The quotes are also wonderful. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks for the great photos and quotes. I missed out on the beach this year but I’m motivated by these photos to make it to a few next year.

    Btw, where was the photo of the restaurants on the cliffs taken? So awesome!

    All the best!

  8. Hi Ann.

    Beautiful pictures.

    I good friend of mine – originally from Vietnam but lived in Sweden for the last 25 years – repeatedly invited me to tag along on one of her numerous trips ‘back home’.

    So far it seems I’m always to busy to go with her but after looking at your beautiful pictures I’ve decided that if she ask me again, I’m gonna MAKE TIME in my so very ‘busy schedule’. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Ann.

    The Photos are so nice as if I were visiting this beach!
    Especially the restaurant at the slope of a cliff is fantastic.
    The breeze from the ocean, stars, wine, and foods might bring you in a dream world.
