up close

An early start but there were a few folk dotted around the beach.

Up close the wild flowers are still showing their bright colours to those who take the time to notice.

It was a toss up between the beach and the hills but the hills won this morning.

Springtime growth showed the very conspicuous unnatural planting in the conifers.

brightly breezy

 28th June 24, Buston, 8am

The pools of the salt marsh fill up at high tide.

Then my path led down to the beach

and a convenient driftwood seat - albeit a windy spot

before climbing back up to the shelter of the dunes.

mist rising

 26th June 24, Bamburgh Castle, 12:30

Today started with dense fog which eventually lifted into a clear blue sky day.

In between times, the last wisps of mist clung here and there but revealed beautiful high clouds.

Back to bright skies and bright flowers.

What a beautiful time of year this is hereabouts.

 18th June 24, Embleton Bay, 6pm

Nice day and a nice spot for a run up and down the coast.

I rested at the halfway point under a soundscape of wind and waves and birdsong.
