Rebrousser chemin

west-sands-beachWell, I’m now settled in St. Andrews, Scotland, for my summer job. It’s a beautiful little town perched on the North Sea. Famous for golf and the university, St. Andrews is also known for West Sands beach, a two-mile swath of sand where the opening sequence of the film Chariots of Fire was shot. I haven’t been for a run there, but I have thoroughly enjoyed my walks bracketed by the dunes on one hand and the surf on the other. After a long walk west, I then retrace my steps or rebrousser chemin (ruh-broose-ay shuh-mahn) and walk toward the town. It’s lovely to watch the sun set over the sea, although it does so after 11 at night! Usually, I’m tucked in my bed by then.
