Corner View

Over at Jane's blog Spain Daily there's a weekly photo project called Corner View, giving everyone the chance to see the small corners of the world that we live in. This week's idea comes from Sophie and is beaches.....now that one is easy for me. There are so many great beaches near us and when the sun is shining (and even when it is not) I like nothing better than to take a wander.....



Just taking a drive around the East Neuk of Fife and you come across many great beaches and little fishing villages such as Pittenweem, Crail and Anstruther. The best places for fish in Scotland, some of the best beaches and walks..... the picture above is Tentsmuir Beach, the sea on one side and the forest on the other - the best of every world!


I dream about a swim in the sea or feeling the sand between your toes! Usually it's a case of, it'll feel better when your feet are numb, when paddling in the sea in Scotland!



Or how about a spot of cricket on the beach as they do on Sunday afternoons in Elie.



And this is a gratuitous shot of a beach, which is not really in my little corner of the world, but it's still in Scotland and Scotland is pretty small so I am sure it can count - Saligo Bay on the island of Islay off the West Coast. 

There's links to everyone taking part over on Jane's blog. I will try my best to get the links posted here next time! Off to look at everyone else's beaches!

How wonderful... I grew up in Cardenden and have fond memories of Crail, Anstruther and Silver Sands was of course our favorite, we would go to Kinghorn and one that had an old castle on the rocks sometimes too!!! This is great to revisit a childhood memory. Thanks for the pics. Ali.

Great pictures, as usual.
Scotland is beautiful and its beaches amazing, the only problem is the sea temperature...

Ooooh, they're gorgeous photos! They're making me miss the sea, though :-(

You felt trees are FAB- such a lovely idea and well done on your blanket being featured on Softies Central!!!!!!

In the words of Columbo: "just one more thing..." - what are those round Japanese things in the photo collage with the bamboo on? They look VERY tasty whatever they are!
