Sometimes you just need to get away on your own, to stare far into the distance, listening to the lapping of water and the chatter of seagulls. I grew up within sight of the sea and I am still drawn to the beach when I need some time alone.
A while back I drove to the beach in Klaipėda, getting there just as the sun was setting. It was mid Autumn, so it was a little chilly and the beach was not busy. I found a quiet spot in the dunes and sat for a while, watching people walking by in twos and threes, but often alone. Others, who like me, just needed a little solitude.
