On the Way; or Down the Road Apiece …


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “On the Way.”

On the Way

This road is  about thirty seconds away from our front gate, and is the one most often followed when going anywhere.   Going anywhere usually involves a left turn halfway down the hill.  As can be imagined, there is a constant temptation, instead, to continue all the way down the hill and then do a right turn towards that splashy frothy stuff they call the Indian Ocean.

Not as good as we had it when said splash was a minute’s walk through jungle down our front garden (which was fronting on the bit of coastline visible in this picture), but pretty handy nonetheless.

  9. I love that splashy frothy stuff, and 20 years ago it was at the bottom of our garden.

      I would really hate not having it handy. Living in the Midlands was incredible, but I still missed it. From it being almost on the front doorstep when I was a child, I have come to regard it as a normal part of existence!
