Sunday at the seaside

We live about sixty miles from the coast and in the busy summer months the drive can take hours so we don't go very often.  In the winter the journey is much easier and this Sunday was bright and sunny perfect for a trip to the sea side.

We walked along the almost deserted beach watching the waves

and looking to see what had been washed up by the tide.

The bright sun picked out the colours of the seaweed.

We also found this complete tile amongst the pebbles - wouldn't it be interesting to know the story of how this came to be on the beach.

Its cold, wet and grey here today but I have the photographs from yesterday to remind me that winter can be the perfect time to visit the beach.

What a lovely outing! It's so wonderful to be able to get out and enjoy nature, in its various expressions. How nice to live somewhat close to the beach.
