So much going on this evening so I photographed it all.
The sea was tempestuous...
...but inland this morning's gale had died to nothing and all was calm.
Daisy stood and posed at the Howick hole which I still think will be gone this winter sometime. It looks very precarious. With it will go the little sandy cliff and a fair few sand martins' nests. They'll find another home soon enough.
Very clarty on the paths and very flooded golf course. Time to head home for breakfast...
...or so I intended. Daisy wanted to hit the beach, and I'm glad she did as we found these sandy towers. After much rain recently, When the burn runs in spate and undercuts the sand the boulders wear sand caps.

Daisy would stand up there all day watching the world go by...
All peaceful here but last night's massive terrorist attack in Paris has stunned everyone.
My thoughts are with those affected and let's hope a solution can be found to stop the murderous intentions of this tiny group of small-minded fools that represent no-one and nothing but their own delusional ideals.
This video is my contribution to Remembrance Sunday. I wrote this song called "A Letter Home" from the perspective of a wee Glasgow man posted to Northumberland at a time when there was a very real threat of invasion. This now peaceful beach was criss-crossed with barbed wire and closed to the public. To this day the concrete tank traps on Embleton Bay bear graffiti written by the soldiers in 1940.
