Out of sight, Out of mind!

I grow up in a small city – Salacgriva. It’s near the sea… or to be precise – gulf. The Gulf of Riga. Never called it gulf. Sea. Always. Spent my summers sunbathing in sand and swimming – it’s safe – no jellyfish or sharks 🙂

Now I’m 200 kilometers (about miles) away from the sea and people ask if I don’t miss it!? My answer is – I don’t! I hate sand and don’t like the sea!

 

But a few days ago standing in the dune and looking at the sea I was feeling something different… it’s love! I love the sea and the dunes and the wind! And the best part of this spot – it’s a sunset side of the Gulf of Riga!

Couldn’t stay till the sun starts to set, but now I know I still love the sea (but no sunbathing!).

P.S. I have a crazy-important week ahead! I hope I won’t blow it! Wish me luck!

  1. It’s strange. I have similar feelings about Yorkshire when I’m in Romania; if people ask me if I miss it my answer is no (even stranger, P’s answer is yes!). However, when I get back here my immediate reaction is “oh, I missed this”.
    It looks a super place from the photos – sea, dunes, woodland – and ‘somebody’ is enjoying it.
    Luck wished 😃
