coffee by the sea

 29th June 23, Howick, 9am

A beautiful bright (but much fresher) morning so I stopped by the beach for a coffee. 

These are the same view from eye level and from down at the height of the flowers. The first one shows the shape of the beach, the 2nd one shows the flowers better. There is no right answer. It’s about the ‘story’. The photographer chooses what they want to capture.

fun in the blue

 22nd June 2023, Hauxley, 3pm

Blue sky, blue sea and a little white lighthouse.

Lots of fun to be had in the warm, calm water...

free cycle

Thankfully some things in life are still free.

evening cool

 19th June 2023, Simonside, 7pm

A jaunt up Simonside with Henry in the cool of the evening

20th June 23, Shilbottle, 4pm

After a (much needed) day of rain it finally stopped enough to venture out.  The poppies still had their heads hidden from the rain and the air was filled with the aroma of vegetation after rain or "petrichor" as it's known.

hot again

 16th June 2023, Buston, 7:30am

Another hot day of endless blue skies.

It was nice to get down to the sea and cool my feet.

Tuesday 13 June 2023

cool down

 13th June 2023, Buston, 7am

It was too hot to hang about in bed so I hopped on the bike at 6:15am and whizzed down to the beach enjoying the cool morning air.

The beach was beautiful and I paused for coffee and a jammy sarnie before heading along to Warkworth and back up the hill (which was very hot by 8am!)

The causeway was about to close and it was all quiet.

It's been a while for one reason and another...  Lovely to be back.

A beautiful morning for a blast down to the beach.  Nice and cool but looks warm later...
