A Breath of Fresh Air.
The weekend is over and with it the fine weather of yesterday, a day where the sun shone with warmth and the sky sang with a glorious blue. We grabbed the moment and sped off to the beach. The breeze was indeed chilly, but oh that sun with its restorative rays. I could bask in them forever.
Isabella as ever filled her wellies with icy water as she waded through rockpools far too deep for her little legs.
The recent stormy weather has taken the sand from over the rocks and thrown it higher up the beach. It seems to have taken the wildlife with it as the pools seemed stangely barren where they normally teem with little creatures of all kinds.
I love this about the beach, the way one day of high winds can transform it into an almost desolate landscape of unforgiving rock only to have it restored to a sandy shoreline more typical of this south coast the next.
One our return Dave discovered this little pot of snowdrops which we bought from a stall on one of our rambles through Coombe last year. A hopeful sign of things to come.
How was your weekend? x
