rain and shine

 26th October 2020, Craster, 9am

Today's PhotoTrail started off in drizzle, then rain then the sun broke through and the light was briefly beautiful.

The rain pattered onto the calm waters of the harbour.

One the sun came out the half-term families arrived to walk to the castle.

I was expecting a grey morning from the forecast but it turned out very nice indeed.

The view from Church Hill was like a postcard.

But looking down on the river the reflections of the sky, clouds and a few passing lapwings made an abstract composition.

The sea changes every day but yet there’s something about this view that is timeless (apart from the lighthouse on Coquet Island) - 

Today could have been any season, any year, any millennium... 

Gee but it's great to be back home

21st October 2020, Alnmouth, 6pm

It was good to be back home on the coast after a few days away.

missing the weather

 14th October 2020, Alnmouth, 1pm

This morning's walk was misty and muddy.  As the morning wore on the sun came out and I had a sunny cycle to Alnmouth.

14th October 2020, Warkworth, 4pm

I use an app to forecast the rain and it's quite accurate.  It was very accurate today but for various reasons we ended up right under this shower.  If we'd been a few miles North we'd have been dry but then I wouldn't have got these photos.

wet walk

 13th October 2020, Buston, 2pm

It was grey and chilly but a lovely walk (until the rain started at our furthest point from home and it was very wet all the way home)

hooting whoopers

 12th October 2020, Warkworth, 7:30am

We had a flypast of hooting Whooper swans this morning.  They flew low straight towards but veered off to one side to avoid us before resuming their southerly migration.

Not many on the sands this morning.

It's great to be back running after 9 months off with a dicky knee.  I'm now revisiting my old favourite places and loving it.
