Day 87 mile 87: Sandy Mile. While staggering bleary eyed to the kettle this morning I happened to look through the window to see that the tide was a long way out exposing miles and miles of flat, soft, knee-and-tendon-saving sand. So, I forsook my morning brew and dashed out.
It is a particularly beautiful day out here, hazy, but very still. The mountains are reflected back upside down in the pools of water which lay in compressions on the sand and the waves coming in on the distant shoreline are so delicate as to look more like heat shimmer above the sand rather than actual water. This, coupled with the huge expanse of sand which common sense says will soon be at least 5m below the waves makes for a transitory and other-worldly feel.
The land, sea and sky meet, reflect back upon each other, and blur at the margins in a union soon to be lost below the waves. I cant think of many better places to be right now 🙂
Now, home for a cuppa!
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
Distance: 1624.8 meters recorded
(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)
