Corner View - Favourite Hang Out

I am late with my favourite hangout post for this week's Corner View! My favourite hang out tends to be wherever my friends/family are but I do have a couple of favourite places.....

Outdoors it would be the near the sea, on the beach, any beach, a cold windy Scottish beach with massive waves or a warm sunny beach lapped by an inviting ocean....here are some of the beaches I visited in the last couple of years....be warned, there are many...


The Ayrshire Coast, Scotland
Rockcliffe Beach, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland

Tentsmuir Beach, Fife, Scotland - my closest, favourite beach!

Ullapool, Scotland

South of Stockholm

North of Copenhagen, Denmark

Beach Cricket, Elie, Fife, Scotland

Hydra, Greece

Miyajima Island, Japan

Atop the Muckle, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland

Pittenweem, Fife, Scotland - my favourite seaside destination!

It's in Pittenweem that you'll find my favourite after beach (particularly in winter) hang out - The Cocoa Tree......chocolates to buy, chocolate cafe, chocolate heaven...




Now I am off to check out all the other great hangouts!

Every one of those beaches looks great! Not many people go to the beaches in winter, but it's worth the trip - it's much more peaceful AND it's easier to find driftwood and other treasures.

Thanks for stopping by my corner too. :>)
