Please take off your shoes and join us on our Ynylas walk, (just before we created the labyrinth)………..
….. ooooh I am still savouring that magical stroll along the wide expanse of Ynylas Beach…… as we go …. imagine a spring breeze making your hair dance around and feeling fresh on your cheeks …. making them glow…….
……. cool salt water swirling round your ankles ……
……… is there anything better in the world than walking along a beach with a dear friend, on a sunny day ……
….. looking for shells …….. watching the shifts of light as the clouds scud across the sky
noticing patterns and inspiration for doodles
with the lull of the sound of the waves
…….. and then it is time to turn around
and return, still gathering shells
…. and marking a thank you before leaving the beach.
Dust off the sand between your toes, shoes on, deep breath and maybe just a little sigh as we say goodbye to Ynylas (for now anyway)…….
Would you like to see the shells I collected?
So satisfying to see them all laid out, some gathered for Linda’s Mum who makes the most amazing shell sculptures, some for me to play with in making pictures, patterns and mandalas as I did in January 2014 in Abu Dhabi, and some as collage material for my grandchildren ………. what would you do?
I tried to find out what ‘Ynyslas’ means in translation. Ynys is ‘isle’, but if I put in ‘ynys las’ – I get ‘greenland’ – however ‘las’ does not translate as ‘green’.
Welsh is not an easy language!
And now, after the beach, how about a wander through:
an Italian Garden;
or join Amanda, The Welsh Wanderer on her journey walking the coast paths;
and then a real treat if you like reflections on water – A Canal Walk in Yorkshire
I do hope you enjoyed walking along with us, it’s fun having you along.
Please leave a link to one of your favourite walks, we’d love to join you.
