Corner View - Places of Reflection

This week on Jane's Corner View, Caitlin chose places of reflection, place you go to just be.....

I have a few favourite places where I relax and go to think, clear my head (helped by the wind that usually blows) and enjoy nature. The first ......you've seen it here before on corner view - Tentsmuir Beach. A 15 minute drive from home, the sea on 2 sides and the forest on a third, the smell of the sea, the crash of the waves, the wind blowing through the maram grass and shifting the sand, the seals barking on their sand banks and squirrels, deer and woodpeckers in the forest, the primeval feeling forest with it's carpet of ferns and it's towering Scot's Pine....



Or I could climb to the top of a mountain and feel like I am on top of the world....



And here's my gratuitous photo for this week - someone considering their thoughts, thinking of their family - lighting a candle in the duomo in Milan.

I love sea and climb mountains too. When you arrive in the top and feel that everything is on your feet. Great sensations.
