After a walk round the golf course Daisy led the way down onto the beach.

after the rain

17th July 2018, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

After heavy rain last night the sea was calm there was no wind in the air and the raindrops hung precariously on the wildflowers.

This is a Burnet moth emerging from its Cocoon.

The water was Caribbean-like

My feet find a track
Seeking sand between the rocks
Avoid slippy stones

The weather forecast says showery and there's a few spits of rain in the air.  Way out at the horizon there is a bit of rain falling

Daisy stood in the calm sea enjoying the coolness.

coming and going

A warm day and we're heading to Glasgow.  It's raining there so this is our chance to enjoy the sun...

little and large

10th July 2018, Dunstanburgh, 8am

A wee jaggy thistle
Sits by the sea
If I had purple spiky hair
He'd look a bit like me

10th July 2018, Newton Point, 4pm

Brilliant sky this afternoon with clouds stretching from one horizon to the other. The heat of the bright summer sun was tempered by a cool breeze. Daisy had her eyes on the sea...

A lovely run along the coastal path between Howick and Boulmer on a nice cool, windless day.

personal space

9th July 2018, Embleton Bay, 7:30am

A hint of rain in the air which is very welcome for the parched landscape.

Daisy watched some dogs going by on the beach while I let my mind drift.  We were disturbed from our peaceful preoccupations by someone who wanted to stand next to us and talk into his phone.  I think city folk have a different idea of personal space.  We left him to his conversation.

9th July 2018, at home, 9am

A definite drizzle now and this feverfew was collecting the raindrops.  Some would regard this as a weed but it is a very beautiful flower and our garden has undisturbed corners for wildlife to enjoy.
