We had a walk on the beach yesterday, and as always there were things of interest for photos
rocks covered in seaweed
the tide coming in
further along the beach, the rocks and weed are tinted red by iron
is this a monster lurking under the sand, ready to bite an ankle?
this morning I spotted this shaggy dog on the dock - he belongs to the skipper of one of the fishing boats
the tide was out, and these swans on the mudbank just outside the dock were busy preening
Malcolm spotted this chap, paddling into the dock
the swans were most upset, and headed for the top corner .......
but then decided to leave, as the chap filmed them
they were at full speed to get away from him
I couldn't decide if he was wearing a kilt, or had a tartan blanket wrapped round his nether regions!
this afternoon we walked over to town, admiring these hanging baskets
this crop of sunflowers is growing in one of the allotments
just as pretty are these weeds growing on top of walls
what would gulls do without chimneys to perch on .......
.... or use as a lookout point
it was very hazy looking over to the lighthouse - this almost looks like a painting
when we were doing a bit of shopping, I asked if I could take a photo of this piece of old floor
I shall have to have a look in my stash for suitable fabrics to make a quilt!
back at the flat, the black swan had reappeared in the dock, after being absent for a while
and the seal popped his head out of the water to say hello
just before dinner, one of the fishing boats headed out of the dock - you can just see some swans hastily getting out of the way
and so to the Friday cake. Malcolm has a peppermint slice
and I had a liquorice allsorts slice ....... I know that sounds very strange, and probably half of you are going, oh no that sounds horrible, while the other half are going yum yum!! I thought it was delicious ...... but then, I love liquorice allsorts (and chocolate!)
the forecast for tomorrow is good, so no doubt we will be out and about, then we will head back home on Sunday. I hope you have a great weekend, love Anne
