Can you feel the cool air that tells of changing seasons? If, like me, you have spent the last 8 weeks sleeping with the windows flung open and the duvet kicked to a heap at the bottom of the bed then perhaps you can feel the cooling of the morning breeze? I’m loving the long lazy days, but can tell the changes in sunrise times and can feel the breath of fresh air that tells us that summer is slowing down.
I’m not a winter person. Spring, summer and autumn I love, but not winter. Not those short days, the darkness, the damp and the cold. So that is why, when I feel the slowing of the summer, I have a tendency of trying to fill more into my day and make the most of being out and about whilst I can. Starting with sunrise. I love starting my day watching a stunning sunrise and Saturday morning at La Rocque Harbour was no exception.
The sky was a moody blue when we arrived, with the fishing boats gently bobbing on the incoming tide and Seymour Tower silhouetted against the cloud line.
La Rocque is such a pretty little harbour with its short curved harbour wall. We have spent many evenings here through the years with various accumulations of children, nieces and nephews and friends, happily throwing ourselves off the harbour wall and into the harbour. When the tide is in of course.
