Travel Photo of the Day (May 12)

I can sit and listen to the waves crash on the beach for hours and never get bored.  This photo was taken after a stormy night.  Our hotel was right on the beach and I heard the thundering waves all night.  It was wonderful.

  1. Ahhh! Love that photo! I live near several beaches, and for me the sound of waves crashing pretty much feels like home. I could spend all day listening to that, and watching that. Having said this, I’m a crap surfer…. 😛

      I never picked up surfing either. I lived in Southern California for years and never even got on a board. I would like to take lessons at some point.

  2. I totally agree! As I think I have mentioned before, I grew up in a sailing family, and nothing is better than falling asleep to the sound of waves, but even better is sleeping on a boat and being rocked to sleep by the waves. :). Great photo! Where was it taken?

    • TBM says:

      I took this at Cape Ann in Massachusetts. It is a nice place to go for a weekend getaway. I’ve never been on a small boat over night. I should add that to my list.

    I have a friend from Gloucester. Is that where you are from?

    • TBM says:

      I grew up in California. I’ve lived in Colorado, Massachusetts, and now England. When we lived in Boston we would go to Gloucester at least once a year, usually during the off season. It is a beautiful place.

      • thirdeyemom says:

        Oh…cool. You must miss California. I love it there! So beautiful but the traffic is a little bad. Sounds like you’ve enjoyed a lot of great places. My brother lives in CO (Denver) and I love it there, especially because I love to ski!

      • TBM says:

        I do miss California but it has been years since I’ve been there. I doubt I would recognize my old neighborhood. Colorado is a fantastic place to live. I’ve been really lucky.

    I’m like you… I love the sound of the sea… Iive about 5 mins from the beach, but I can’t hear it from my place 😦

  10. Colline says:

    Beautiful. I can imagine the waves crashing on the beach.

  11. zelmare says:

    Oh yes, I love that sound too! Love watching the waves – it does have a calming effect. 🙂

  12. liz2you says:

    Africa? It’s got to be Africa!! Thanks for that.

    • TBM says:

      Actually this photo was taken in Massachusetts in the United States. I’ve seen the coastline in South Africa and it was beautiful.

  13. Fergiemoto says:

    Wow! I think I just felt some of the mist hit me!

  14. I feel the same way. I love sitting in the sand, digging my toes into the ground and watching the waves crash on shore.

  15. Myra GB says:

    I would like to think that I am a child of the sea too and can listen to the waves all night. 🙂 Beautiful photo.

  16. Love this photo, one of my favorite things to do as well. Thanks!
