[Easy English Blog] Living near the sea


I live near the sea. It is about a 20-minute drive from my house to the sea. I feel that I am lucky to live so close to it. Many people visit the beach and the sea in summer, but I don’t. I like to visit the sea in spring or autumn. Sometimes, I go in winter. The wind is fresh, and there are no other people around.


When I was a child, I went to the beach every summer. My family and I went on holiday to the seaside for two weeks every August. The beach was always packed (packed = crowded) with other families. I used to make sand castles and go paddling (walking in the shallow water) in the sea.


Now, I drive to the sea, park my car, and enjoy listening to the sound of the sea and breathing the fresh sea air. Sometimes I write poetry. I think that being near the sea makes me more creative. Maybe it is the rhythm of the waves, or maybe it is the beautiful views, but when I go to the sea, I feel like I want to write.


Last November, I went for a drive by the sea. The photographs on this page are from then.

When is your favourite time to go to the sea?
