My days flow as I work watching the tides doing their natural thing, birds riding the thermals and all sorts of crafts sailing on the water. Late on Thursday night and into Friday morning the tall ships sailed in for the festival this weekend and it was a breathtaking sight.

I felt drawn to come and live here, not knowing a soul or the area, with a pull so heartfelt I followed it.

This weekend arrangements flowed in and out and all of us were drawn together by love; of a partner, a brother and a lifelong friend.

Seasons flow with our lives in a state of flux and the world in change. Nothing lasts.

The constant is love. ❤

    Yes!! It is true. Love is the key to all the ills of the world.
    It begins at birth and grows with us at every stage of life
    in so many different ways. If we were smart enough to let
    love rule, there would be no wars. There you have it, Peace
    and Love…to you my friend,

    What is it about a sailing ship that draws us? A serene beauty or a grim history? So many have sacrificed themselves to the war with the sea, yet it calls to each of us, and we would do the same again. three masts and a hull crammed with metaphors – a beautiful picture Jane, and a beautiful place to watch those stories pass!

      Is it the natural movement forward I wonder? the choices it gives us? I look across at Liverpool and know that it was built on the slave trade and that’s a very unpalatable truth, but a grim truth nonetheless. The stories of history are there, if we can but learn from them. Loving connections are the priceless treasure of life. Hugs for you. Xx

    Where would we be without love! I adore those big ships! We had a holiday on the north German coast at Travemunde near Lubeck ten years ago and there was a sailing festival during our stay. We had a wonderful time. There were so many connections with Liverpool. They even eat scouse there! Lots of hugs and ❤ xx

    I find the seaside so restful. Your description reminded me of the hours spent by our coasts watching those clouds, birds and waves. All the stress associated with work and living evaporates in that environment.

    Just as it should be Jane. Love is the anchor that holds all other things to it.
