New Year, new start, new dreams

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday was all about last year, thinking about the events of the past 12 months, the memories both happy and sad and today the focus is completely on the future. The thing I like most about New Year's Day is that it is just that, the start of a new year. I like the idea of new beginnings and all the possibilities that that may hold.

Today was a beautiful day and after the rain and the wind and the grey clouds, it was fabulous to go for a run around Pegwell Bay Country Park.

The whole place is filled with birds and plants. This lovely area of Kent is stunning. I could just stand and look at the fragile salt flats painted in a delicately subtle colours forever, such a striking contrast to the gaudy, sparkle feast of Christmas. Not that I don't like glitter and brightness but nature is so easy on the eyes.

Blue sea, white cliffs, red rose hips and azure sky.

Thin skeletons of plants, shadows of structures against the pale winter sky.

Lichen almost luminous in the late afternoon sun.

I couldn't resist just a tiny speck of glitz.

I would love it if you could leave a comment. Please give it a go, I'm working on making it easier
