Longing for the Black Sea
Take extremely hot weather, bright sun and a cool breeze-like wind during lunch break and what do you get? You get a strong desire to be here:
The beach, the waves, the coolness, the occasional clouds, the sound of the sea, the very essence of its salty water. So while talking to my colleagues today, I was also fantasizing about the Black Sea, our very own Romanian Seaside. Neglected as it is, crowded, and inexplicably expensive, I still want to see it soon.
Here are two views of the Casino from Constanta. Simply beautiful. Wouldn't you also like to be at one of those tables right now? I'd go for a lemonade, cold as ice please! Then I'd take a book with me and go read and then sleep on the beach, touching the sand and listening to the seagulls.
I will stop at dreaming for now. But when the exam session is over, I will so get in my car and drive there, at least for two days. Anyone else coming along?

    Well, Safiya, come to Romania and I'll take you there.

    Sorry Mig, it wasn't meant to upset you..:( It is just this persistent beach feeling I get these days :)

    I am thinking more like Dutch Antilles. :P Wanna join? :D

    Such beautiful photos - no wonder you long for the seaside! Hope you get there soon for a well-deserved break!

    I hope so too! But to be honest, for shorter breaks, when I need to see beautiful photos and read interesting entries, I stop by your blog :)

    I already miss the sea :). The photos with the Casino are very appealing, too bad our seaside is so crowded!

    Yes, I am (at least in my dreams). This is so far away ;-)

    Simonne, I don't think that's the main reason to dislike our seaside. I blame it more on the lack of common sense of those sitting next to you and the dirtiness. If these would disappear, I am sure it would all turn into an overall pleasing experience.

    Dio, it's the same for me right now, just dreaming. So meet you there :)

    Oh, it's been so long since my last time there. I used to go every year, after a long trip in the mountains, to get rid of the funny tan lines and get lazy on the beach after working the ropes so hard on the cliffs :)
    If you go, take more pictures. I'll feed on them and probably ride my bike to the Alabama beach this coming weekend (it's closer than Florida), to bring back the memories :) No mountains around, though, and not much time either...

    Raluca, if I get there anytime soon, I will take more photos, promise :)
