Walk on a sparkly blue morning ...

Hello,

After weeks of being buffeted and bombarded by storms this is the first sparkly blue day of the year and it is SO lovely to see the sunshine again. We've experience one storm after another with high winds, torrential rain and flooding, hail, thunderstorms...it has been relentless so donning warm layers and sturdy boots I took myself off to the seaside early this morning.

The beach at Exmouth was quiet when I arrived, with just a few dog-walkers and runners enjoying the bright morning but soon it became quite busy as people made the most of this perfect weather...

The tide was on its way in and gulls and crows were patrolling the water's edge on the lookout for a tasty meal of shellfish then with their beaks full they'd take off to fly over the pathways to drop the mussels to crack the shells before eating the tasty titbits inside...
                                     

...out on the rocks geese were grazing on the seaweed...


...and the storms had thrown up huge stones and rocks onto the beach...


...everywhere debris scattered the beach...


...and huge piles of sand had been banked ready to distribulte back onto the beach after its being thrown up onto the promenade by the stormy weather...


...but today the sea was calm and the sky was the most amazing blue and there wasn't a breath of wind...













                                      

Lovely to breath the sea air again and to appreciate how fortunate we are to live so near to the coast.

I hope the sun is shining where you are today.
Thank you for visiting.

Looks like you really made the most of today's lovely weather - the sun is shining here too, and if I'd not been booked for a hair appointment I would have taken myself (and my new camera!) to Kew, but it wasn't to be... What a pretty beach Exmouth is.

stunning photos and great depth of field in the shell ones. Looks like you made the most of a beautiful day. I missed the sun here - I was in Sainsbury's for the half hour that it was out!! Hope we get some more soon!
