When one thinks of “the beach” it’s almost always about sunshine, sea and sand. Preferably warm or hot sand. Some beaches, however, are a little different.
When we went on vacation to the Mediterranean as kids, we always avoided the pebble beaches as they were not comfortable to sit on.
Yet one advantage was that you never got sand on your wet feet that would creep between your toes .
Another big plus for me was always the noise that the beach made with the bigger waves. Sometimes deafeningly loud, sometimes barely audible. Of course back then I didn’t have any recording gear, but that has changed. Here is a recording of a pebble beach with fairly good waves.
The stones clicking against each other is something that one must hear at least once in a lifetime .
Until next time…
