    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.

    All the best!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
