My heart’s biggest desire is to travel far and beyond, not for the sake of checking off things off my list; but to pour out that joy back into the world through story telling; to empower, to inspire and to touch lives; to spark up transformation because that is the reward i have received from my experiences.
You can almost hear this image and taste the colour. it lights up your senses in every which way. the atlantic lapping against the rocks in pendeen near the lighthouse where we camped down for the night. inspirational. live a wild life, make time for the simple things.

Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun. the moon's elliptic orbit means that twice a month, the moon, sun and earth are in direct alignment and create a combined gravitational force.
in the open ocean, the tidal force of the moon will appear as bulges of water facing the moon whereas around land mass the water can spread out onto land creating tides.
there are two types of tides that occur twice a month that are higher or lower than average. these are called neap and spring tides.
“when there is a low tide, the moon faces the earth at a right angle to the sun so the gravitational force of the moon and sun work against each other. these tides are referred to as neap tides; a low tide or one that is lower than average. a neap tide happens between two spring tides and occurs twice a month when the first and last quarter moon appears.” (met office)
“when there is a high tide, the sun, moon and earth are in alignment and the gravitational force is strong. these tides are known as spring tides and occur twice a month. in this case the moon can appear in between the earth and sun resulting in a solar eclipse, or at the furthest point away from the sun resulting in a full moon. when in alignment, the moon and sun combine in gravitational forces to bring the highest and lowest tides of the month.” (met office)
A very wet and miserable start to today so here's a throwback to some beach finds from last week. have decided that beach combing is addictive and i spend more time looking amongst the sand and seaweed than enjoying the view!
The wee island to the left of this picture is called the isle of hestan and it lies at the mouth of auchencairn bay in dumfries and galloway. it's only two miles from rockcliffe. there's a natural path of shingles and mussels that you can walk across during the time of spring tides, but it requires some wading which can be up to your waist. hence why we've not walked to the island (yet). knowing my lunch we'd loose track of time exploring and get stuck during high tide 😂
Adding some finishing touches outdoors this next couple of weeks with some new furniture and getting our breeze block creation going. my whole vision for this space was to feel like we were staying at a tropical resort on a family holiday. honestly i'm so excited for a lot of summer entertaining, and weekends spent by the pool without having to leave my own home.
The beaches might be a little cold this time of the year so why not head to one of yanchep's luscious green parks where you will find a sense of community along with an abundance of flora and fauna.
