Manzanilla moment

Manzanilla: ever changing, yet the same.
A photo is only visual and can never capture a moment as fully as we experience it. All of the other senses were engaged at this moment.
Touch - walking on the sand there are firm parts and there are unexpected parts where suddenly your foot sinks in as if you are in quicksand
Taste - there is a strong sea spray. If you stick out your tongue you taste it
Smell - wet, salty, nothing too overpowering
Sound/Hearing - constant roar of sea and wind, a wild sound
Extra sense - the sacredness of Manzanilla

A beautiful photograph and the words with which I can evoke the other senses. Thank you!

Well, we have another love in common. I found your post today and realised that we were writing about Manzanilla just a few days apart at Ode To Drift Seeds.
Thanks for capturing and sharing the essence.
