Looks beautiful. Enjoy having no one to answer to. I used to feel like this doing stuff on my own but once you've done it a few times it's heaven.

Looks bloody amazing. And I dream come true. I can't remember what it's like to be alone.
enjoy yourself OP. Get a tan, read a book, splash in the sea. Relax!

You are the only you in the entire world, past present and future.

Rock the hell out of yourself!

You're entitled to take up space.

By the look of that long stretch of empty sand, you are literally on your own. What are you worried about?

Self-conscious about what? It's no different to being at the park on your own really - I can't imagine anyone will give it a second thought smile

Nobody cares what you're up to. Crack on and enjoy yourself

Tish, I really like your comment!

Op, what are you worried about?

I love doing things on my own but have never had chance to go to the beach on my own.

It sounds lovely - time to relax, read and , most of all, people watch (although it does look pretty deserted there a the moment).

Enjoy it!

There's a few people further along but I have loads of space to myself.
I'm being silly aren't I ..I'm going to turn my music up and ignore the world

It looks beautiful OP. I would do anything sell my child on Ebay to be there now, alone with a book and flask of coffee.

Enjoy it for the rest of us grin

Enjoy smile

Yes @Tish008!!

Enjoy OP, the more you do things alone the easier it is - hope you can buy an ice cream, and read a book. Just remember your suncream if you've not got someone here to do your back!

Enjoy your day

@tellmewhentheLangshiplandscoz grin not waiting a week for final bids. Putting mine on Facebook market place for immediate collections grin

I used to live near the beach, though nowhere near as nice as that one! In summer I used to go most days but certainly couldn’t expect company every time. You won’t be alone in being alone!

TumbledGlass Wed 24-Jun-20 10:40:06

I go to the beach every day, I wouldn't even notice if anyone was by themselves and if I did I wouldn't think anything of it.

Tish008 Wed 24-Jun-20 10:40:14


Tish, I really like your comment!

Op, what are you worried about?

Thanks Tom flowers

If I saw anyone at the beach on their own my main feeling would be envy!

weepingwillow22 Wed 24-Jun-20 10:45:38

I wish I was on the beach on my own. When I do get a chance to visit my time is usually spent changing nappies, feeding, chasing after children, making sure all the things we need for the children are not blowing away etc. Relish the peace and enjoy your day.

happyclappyc Wed 24-Jun-20 10:51:55

I'm worried people might think I'm a looser being on my own.
My friends are all at work today so didn't want to stay in the house.
Really wanted to come to the beach so thought stuff it.
Now I'm here my eyes are all over checking nobody is watching me blush
