Brancaster Staithe 5/7

This gentleman appeared to be on his own at Brancaster Staithe and stood seemingly lost in thought for quite a long while as he watched the world go by.

I find that the sea can have that effect on me, too, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The one thing we have on Earth that is never still and ever changing.
Excellent photo, Brian - I like this. Water is quite mesmerizing. I love the sound of water, and wind in the trees...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. It was really quiet there that day apart from the noise of the sea and a strong breeze, not quite idyllic but almost so.

Comme lui, je ne me lasse pas de regarder la mer.

This is when I'm apt to say "We should do this more often!"

Maybe thinking through a problem or just enjoying the view..
Brian Walbey: Could be Chris, he stood for quite a while, then took a stroll, and returned to stand like this for a further period.
I wonder if he is contemplating life outside the single market.
Brian Walbey: Certainly gazing in the direction of Europe, Hollandland to be more precise.

One morning very early in Israel, a guy stood like this on the beach. All of a sudden he took off all his clothes and went for a swim in the nude ... I didn't take pictures smile Maybe this one is an ex-sailor contemplating what has been.
Brian Walbey: He might well be Louis, old sailors never lose their love for the sea. My FIL was in the Navy in WWII and often remarked how he wouldn't mind going back to sea in a civilian role, despite the fact he was a dreadful sailor where sea-sickness was concerned.
Seeing he is dressed in motorcycle clothes, he is probably taking a leg-stretching break.
Brian Walbey: He stood for quite a while, then took a stroll, and returned to stand like this for a further period. If there had been children on the beach I might have felt a bit concerned but as it is there wasn't so he was perhaps just enjoying the general solitude that morning.

He looks like a motorbiker. I love the composition. I could stand there also for some time, and the montonous sound of the sea is very calming.
Brian Walbey: Like us you live a long way from the sea and it is nice to just find a quiet beach like this and soak in the peaceful atmosphere isn't it.

Just lost in thought in the enormity of the scene before him. Who can blame him!
Brian Walbey: I quite agree Alan, especially with me living a long way from the sea unlike yourself.

This is such a wonderful picture. Maybe he had some good memories on this beach and wanted to be with his own thoughts.... and sea is so calming, how rough the waves are.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid. Living a long way from the sea as Maureen and I do it is nice to just find a quiet beach like this and soak in the peaceful atmosphere.
The sea seems to encourage such behavioiur, Brian smile

Seawatching is very therapeutic Brian
