Travel theme: Land meets Water

It’s no secret I love the beach – although I actually prefer the rainy off-season when there are no tourists around and there’s less chance of sunburn! But this week I wanted to look at all places where water and land intersect, so that includes beaches like Kailua Bay in Hawaii

…dramatic coastlines like the stunning Oregon Coast

… legendary rivers like the Missouri

… and the Mississippi

… and great lakes set against hulking volcanoes like Reflection Lake by Mount Rainier …

… and Lake Atitlán surrounded by the triumvirate of Tolimán , Atitlán and San Pedro volcanoes.

xxx Ailsa

I am an intelligent river which has reflected successfully all the banks before which it has flowed by meditating only on the images offered by those changing shores. – Victor Hugo

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core. – W.B. Yeates (The Lake Isle of Innisfree)

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

  23. Australia’s coastline is huge so there are too many great spots to start to think about…but my post this week seems to hit the mark you’re looking for! After a bit of a blogging break, I was happy that my post coincided with your theme!

    Just discovered your wonderful blog. So looking forward to following from here in Western Australia. Here is a set of variations of a photo I took of Mt Fuji from one of the lakes at its base, using different processing techniques. Best wishes!
