After the long, wet and cold winter we really needed a warm and sunny day and fortunately Easter Sunday was just the day we were waiting for. It started off misty, especially in the central part of the island, but further west it was much brighter and sunnier. I always say it’s best in the west and in spring and early summer the west of Islay tends to be sunnier than the eastern part. Anyway, we left misty Port Charlotte and headed to Kilchoman beach which was bathing in sunshine. It felt like spring, almost summer, and we stayed there for hours to enjoy the warm sunshine, to listen to the waves and the birds, play in the sand (my daughter) and to take a great series of pictures. Please enjoy them, this is our Easter present for you!
The beach at Kilchoman is without a doubt one of the nicest beaches on Islay and over the course of the winter we have been there many many times, and we have also seen the bay and dunes from the radio station. Each time we were at Kilchoman Beach the light was different and every time it was special, even on a rainy day. Last week however the light was even more amazing. There was bright sunshine in between dark clouds and because it was later in the afternoon there was a lot of yellow in the light which reflected on the dunes, the sand and the reeds in front of the coastguard cottages. It created beautiful views of one of our favourite beaches on Islay. Below a rotating gallery with some pictures of Kilchoman Beach and the Dunes.
