    Sandbanks ferry way beach

    At the end of a busy day at work, the small Sandbanks ferry way beach, hiding behind the local hotel, was the stage to bring the family here and release the stress from the office, in the shores of this forgotten place. This unnoticed beach is lost in the luxurious peninsula of Sandbanks, outskirts of the British town of Poole, Dorset county.

    We were the only ones in this 30 meter long strip of sand surrounded by rocks. The beach was only for our own and we placed ourself s in the middle, to enjoy in stereo the beauty of this place. The warm waters of the channel islands, felling the rare sandy beaches of the south coast of England, can bring a salty fragrance of the Atlantic with the symphonic tweets of the seagulls and the giggling children, who were having fun, jumping over the small waves. While the body was receiving the input from the senses, I figure out that I don't need to spend large sums of money to take wife and kids to a glossy cover beach stamped in the local travel magazine. The so called paradisiac beach sometimes can be found in a place closer to you.

    Not far from where I was, two friends stand together in the small pier, talking while fishing and looking to one of the most amazing sunsets on that summer. Like myself, they were two lucky guys enjoy their time in this small paradise, watching the tide roll away.
