Coastal Treasure





The sunny weather on the second day of our mini child-free holiday was the perfect invitation for playing tourist. Although this coastal city is only one hour's drive from home we rarely visit it. Looking seaward from "The Jetty" there is much more to explore on another trip.




 Looking back towards the mountains is also a very pleasant view - especially considering it's winter here.




On the other side of "The Jetty" lies another beautiful beach. No wonder this town is popular with tourists.




After a little more sightseeing we headed for the shops and were delighted to find it was also market day. We were only away from home for 30 wonderful hours, although it seemed much longer. It was nice to be together again as a family, we were missed (and we missed them too).

Dobrze, że pogoda sprzyjała Waszym mini wakacjom i można było zobaczyć cudowne widoki. Trzecie zdjęcie to widok który uwielbiam : morze i góry razem. Pozdrawiam.
It's good that your mini weather encouraged the holidays and you could see the wonderful views. The third picture is the view which I love: the sea and mountains together. Yours.

I can't get over the number of boats in the water! The mountain view you had is spectacular. Even though it's winter, looks like a clear day for you. It's nice to get away, even for a day. :)
