WPC: Relax

It’s quite relaxing living in the countryside and close to the coast. The pace of life is much slower down here which can sometimes make it stressful when you want a job doing quickly. A stroll on a deserted beach, or along the cliff-top with views of the ocean below, soon soothes the mind, but my favourite place to go to where I can sit and meditate in peace and quiet and simply breathe is but a short walk away.


Where even on the first day of winter in the late afternoon, the views cast a spell.

  1. What a view. The epitome of relax!

    A lovely sky, Jude. The countryside does have its benefits indeed!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      Especially when you have a good viewpoint close by!

  3. Stunning colours!

  4. restlessjo says:

    That is one serious postcard of a view, Jude! Can I come and share it one day? πŸ™‚ Such a beautiful shot!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Of course you may. Clouded over again today now though, so don’t hurry down…

    2. Sue says:

      And me, please!!

      1. restlessjo says:

        Now look! This could end up being subtitled ‘a crowd on a hill’ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        1. Sue says:

          Well, so what….the more the merrier 😧

        2. restlessjo says:

          I’ll only be merry if Jude’s bringing some fortification πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Are you a mulled wine connoisseur, or hot chocolate with brandy?

        3. Sue says:

          GlΓΌhwein was good in the cold days of winter on ski trips, back in the day….

        4. restlessjo says:

          I’ve never skied. Well only dry ski slope and I dislocated a thumb. You have the gluhwein. I’ll bring the hot chocolate with something a little stronger πŸ™‚

        5. Sue says:

          Oh, this won’t be any ordinary GlΓΌhwein….

        6. restlessjo says:

          I’ll have some of both! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        7. Sue says:


        8. Heyjude says:

          Hot chocolate with a splash of brandy or baileys for me please.

        9. Sue says:

          That you shall have, Gilly!!

  5. Beautiful contribution!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thank you, glad you like it πŸ™‚

  6. Oh Jude…. Make a bit more room on the bench. I’ll join you and Jo and Sue, and I promise not to talk and break the spell. It’s beautiful.

    1. Heyjude says:

      No bench up here Carole, you have to sit on the ground or one of the rocks. Bring a cushion!!

      1. I’ll bring my folding chair, complete with folding table attached on the side upon which I will place my drink!

        1. Heyjude says:

          Oh, no! Not another one on the booze! o_O
          Now, which one are you – mulled wine or hot chocolate with extra? Or maybe hot mulled cider? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        2. I’m not used to your frigid temperatures so I have to stay warm somehow. Hot chocolate sounds good, but I’ve never tried hot mulled cider so perhaps that would be nice.

        3. Heyjude says:

          I may give that a go this Christmas – I’ll let you know what it is like!

  7. Lucid Gypsy says:

    . . . and me please nicely!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Gosh it IS getting crowded up here!

  8. Lucid Gypsy says:

    Well this is a frameable beauty!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Perhaps postcard size! A bit noisy.

    Fantastic sky. It’s relaxing if you want it to be, or energising if that’s what you prefer, too.

  10. Lovely, I would find that very relaxing.
