We popped up to the flat yesterday morning, and as the sun was shining we went for a walk on the beach. I think it may be a law that the first photo taken has to be of the lighthouse!
I find it fascinating how the sand constantly shifts. The groynes on the right are usually about shoulder height, now they are about waist height, and you can no longer see the ones on the left
although this is just an empty crab shell, it looks quite menacing
I wonder if this is one of its legs?
a lone daffodil on the sand ........ we have no idea where it could have come from
although it was a sunny day, the brave souls who went for a paddle were shrieking at the cold water
on the way home this morning, we popped in for a cuppa
although the sun was shining, it was just a bit chilly to sit outside
so we headed into the welcoming coffee shop
although the flowers are plastic, they brightened up the tables
we resisted the sweet, chocolatey cakes
and instead shared a delicious chees scone. We do like places that bring you an extra plate when you say you are sharing the scone or cake!
I spotted this branch on the beach at the start of our walk, and although it was heavy, I carried it all the way for the rest of the walk, as I was determined to bring it home for the garden. Malcolm set it up in the front garden this afternoon, and hung a couple of bird feeders from it. He will need to build a plinth for the birdbath to sit on
but our Indonesian birds don't need the feeders!
there is a lot of grass all round the house, which was rather long when we moved in. Malcolm has gradually been getting it cut, and the edges tidied. The deck needs a good clean and a bit of refurbishment, but that didn't stop us having both lunch and our afternoon cuppa on it
I'll be back on Wednesday with lots of sewing (woohoo!)
