|The view East from the cliff-top|
As luck would have it, Thursday morning saw temperatures low enough so that Overstrand Beach had something different on show: Ice!
Before you jump to the wrong conclusion, I don't mean that the sea had frozen - the temperature wasn't Canadian Winter cold - no, the ice was from the fresh water that seeps out of the cliffs and across the sand. So, this selection of photos, while including some familiar sights, does have something different from all the other beach photos I've bombarded you with over the years.
|"Oh, it's you again. Keep the noise down as we're trying to sleep."|
|What can be seen through this overgrown orifice?|
|Oh. Just a big, sturdy groyne.|
|Better get on with the walk, I suppose...|
|A frosty revetment leads to...|
|... the End-of-the-Line!|
|The Groyne at the End-of-the-Line|
|Uh, oh. Cut off by the incoming tide. Better go up the beach to the lee of the cliffs where...|
|... freshwater seepage has frozen across the sand.|
|That's enough of that. Time to head home.|
|Ships don't always pass in the night, it seems.|
Do you have a favourite walk or destination that you just can't get enough of?
