Where do you write letters?

Sometimes, I start a letter in a cafe but if I do not finish it in one session, I will complete it at home. I also write letters at my desk (where my computer is), often listening to the radio, or watching a DVD I have already seen, on the computer.
However, this evening was a pleasant sunny one and we spent it down the beach. I laid on the rug and wrote a reply to a letter, using my bag, and a book to stop the letter and paper blowing away....
while this moat was being dug out (with a proper spade), with the sand placed on two piles. I finished my letter and then we played beach cricket (why can't this be an Olympic sport!?)... About 10 minutes later, the tide was coming close so our goodies were moved to higher ground...
and then continued playing for another 10 or so minutes, and then the tide washed over my little island. All that was left was the two mounds of sand...
then those began to sink in the rising tide....


  1. What a wonderful place to write a letter! Even more "romantic" now that the place itself has returned to the sea.

    I usually write my letters either at my desk in the office or on a clipboard whilst sitting on the sofa. I'd like to write lying down, as I used to in my younger days, but the poor old joints can't cope any more!

    1. My clipboard is broken! Need to get another one.
