Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

I’ve chosen three photos this week, very different ones but all of the sea.

The first was taken at Cape Coast, in Ghana. I’ve chosen it simply because it was taken on an unspoilt beach, that had just a small hotel with hut rooms looking at the ocean.IMG_2845

The next was taken here in England. I think I  might have posted it before but I still love it and hope you will. I call it ‘Mermaids’.

This one isn’t a very good quality image but I’ve chosen it because it reminds me of a time when I did somethingthat was very brave for me. You see, I’m not a very good swimmer, I’m scared to put my head under or to go out of my depth. I think it’s because when I was a child someone pushed me under in a swimming pool. But when I went to Borneo a few years ago I had the chance to snorkel on a coral reef and I knew it was a once in a lifetime time chance. I forced myself to have a go and even though I was tense all the time, it is one of the best things I have ever done.

  1. All gorgeous pics, Gilly, but your last one really spoke to me. I’m also afraid to put my head under water, but forced myself a couple of times to do some snorkelling. I was also tense the whole time, but glad I did it. Bravo! 🙂

  2. Great pictures Gilly. The Ghana Coast looks utterly impregnable, though I know well the west African coast and its miles upon miles of deserted wild golden sandy beaches and brilliant white foaming surf. Nice one.

  3. Three very different shots… the sea has so many faces. And that Atlantic which looks so mean and horrible around England comes in looking blue and gorgeous on the west African coastline. Love that rugged unspoiled coastline in your second shot. BTW isn’t the underwater world just inspiring 🙂 ?

  4. Snorkelling is so much fun! Watching sea life is just food for your soul.
    Doing things you normally won’t do is a juggling thng. It’s risky but rewarding. Once I got over one fear, I’m up for almost anything. I just need perfect timing…. and breathing. Ahihihi 😀

I would love to hear from you . . .
