  5. I like the ost cards - the beach is almost austere, the sand plain and the rocks cold. Yet, to me the ebb and gentle tides give it a truly quiet and comforting solace. The sea seems to be of two minds sometimes - rough and unforgiving or, like these views, a quiet and unassuming beauty. All the pics are so noce...happy Easter to you and Muse!
