Oh, and that stone spiral mutation on the right, there.
Right. First up, Thursday's photos - starting with this tired/grumpy (I can't decide which) little turnstone (Arenaria interpres).
One of these sea birds is not like the others...
A rather worse-for-wear Galaxy
These stones have lost their spiral
A revitalised Galaxy
Ah, that's better!
Sea glass - and a bit of willow pattern crockery
Nice day for it
Vos Endurance keeping an eye on things
It was so nice that someone was having a swim (not here, a bit further along).
I should have brought my trunks, too...
... but I probably would have frightened this lot...
... including this juvenile cormorant.
That's Thursday's photos sorted. In other news, I have made a a start on this year's Coven Awards! As well as some of the usual awards (Sexiest Sci-Figure, Most Mesmerising Monster, and the ones that Ms Scarlet always wins), I am opening the floor to suggestions from the crowd, i.e. You! Have you got an idea for an award? Do you think there's a blog-related someone/thing-or-other that deserves an award for doing/being something ridiculous? Or do you have a favourite font that you think should be used for the header or award titles? Is there someone/thing, living or dead, real or fictitious, good or evil, who etc. etc...*
I've already chosen a theme, but if someone comes up with a better one that I can be bothered to do, then the Year of the Ancient Groyne could be postponed until next year.
Or is it enough for you to slog/skim through the awards without adding yet more inane rubbish to make note of in case there's a surprise quiz at the end?**
Speaking of which, next up are this morning's photos:
Galaxy as I found it
And after a quick tidy up with a few embellishments...
... plus a few more for luck!
Not such nice weather today
Despite the clouds, it didn't rain
... and what I thought at first to be a seal, then a dog, turned out to be some berk in a wetsuit.
