Coastal Medicine…

Thursday, 12 January 2012

It recently occurred to me that the one and only time I feel truly relaxed is when I am on the beach staring out over the water with my toes wedged firmly in the sand. I am pulled in by the drama or the serenity of the water, the sticky sweet smell of the air and the mesmerising sounds. You can keep your massages, tai-chi and anxiety meds – give me an hour on the beach and I am in bliss! It is for this reason that I am drawn to the work of Mark MacKinnon (if the name is familiar to you, it’s because I have blogged about his other work here…) I am not quite sure how he manages it but he captures the calm mood of the sea beautifully. When I look at these pictures, I feel like closing my eyes and taking a deep breath to see if I can smell the ocean.

  3. I'm keeping these on my computer in times of stress. The beach and ocean is where I like to be. The colors are beautiful.

  4. I know what you mean :- if my husband & I stressed & the kids are ratty - if we all just go to the beach for a walk we come back relaxed and laughing! Thankfully we live by the beach otherwise it would be a pretty scary household!!!
    Lovely photos!
