Whilst a sandy beach is a delight in its own way, my preference is for a pebble beach. But not just any pebble beach. It has to be one with just the right size of pebbles.
Too big and the noise of the moving sea is too deep and inwardly stirring.
Too small, the noise created is too high pitched and grates on the nerves.
But with a nice mix of medium-sized pebbles and the sound is like a symphony.
Relaxing me. Calming me. Soothing me. I can feel the shoulders lowering and my breath slowing just thinking about it.
As I sit in wonder at the soothing sounds, I am always drawn to the colours and shapes of the pebbles, the endless variety of textures and the varied temperature of the different kinds of rock.
For me this is a paradise on earth.
