Corner view, "beach"

I love legends and mythology, as much as I love to have long walks on the beach from October to May. Near home, I found both: A peaceful walk on late October and the legend of Aeneas who, according to Virgilio's first books of the Aeneid, made landfall somewhere on this beach, and became the progenitor of the Roman people...

beautiful pictures, and i love the way the ocean connects you to the entire cycle of life. i always think of the people who came before and the people who will come after when i'm there.

Aeneas was the son of Aphrodite. Did you feel like her on the beach that day? ;)
Great pictures, just the kind of Corner View I like.
Have a nice evening, Jeannette

That beach looks gorgeous. I wish I had a little bit of knowledge about mythology and legends! Never too late to learn, I suppose.

Thanks for taking part in my apron giveaway! Good luck!

thanks Ian! These sea it's the one I love: Late Autumn sunset, crispy breeze and most of all, to close my eyes and walk in solitude on the beach...
