Waves of Hope

I was out very early this morning with puppy Stan and could hear the song of the sea in the darkness as we walked around our usual block.

Back home, I read a post by Malin, one of my favourite bloggers. It was about water, ripples and life.

All in an instant, I felt compelled to run down to the Promenade and capture the waves, even though I knew that one of Tramore’s greatest sunrises wasn’t shaping up.

It was a basic need to embrace the energy of the ocean and feel all the elements coming together as the wind and saltiness battered my face.

Here’s how the sea looked in all her nakedness:

The dark clouds coming from the South accentuated the whiteness of the waves as they tumbled towards me.

Life is all about fluctuations and, even on this overcast morning, there was a definite promise of hope and colour.

    1. Hi Martha, thanks for writing. Yes, Tramore is lovely at sunrise. Today was a rather different kind of sunrise to the ones that are normally posted. But, I love Tramore Bay in all her moods!

  1. I’m so glad I could inspire you! You made my day, Jean. Thank you for the mention! And a wonderful post, both text and images! ❤️
