Surges of Spume-laden Surf


 These photos are from this morning's brief perambulation along the promenade.  Surprisingly, I didn't get too wet!

This shot is from the slipway at the foot of the Pauls Lane access slope to the beach


I'd walked east along the prom then turned back to take this photo


Heading east again



Straight on to Sidestrand, and on the horizon where the cliff meets the sea is Trimingham


This is the far end of the prom at the Coast Road slipway


The following six photos are of the revetments protecting the cliffs to Sidestrand







Not all cormorants are holidaying in Devon...


The Titan Endeavour - such a grand name for such a little boat!

    1. No, there was no storm here, just a combination of high tide and a strong winds further north pushing more water our way.

    1. It is definitely for spitting, not swallowing.

  3. I saw some pics of Wells-next-the-Sea the other day and figured you'd have a some splash on your front.
    Great scenes. Thank you.

    1. We like these end of summer high tides as they catch the faux-posh tourists out (Wells and Cley are particularly afflicted) and, if we're lucky, sweep them away!

  4. Thank you for the photos! They are grand [crikey, I have no idea why I've gone all Northern this morning - maybe I am missing Mitzi?]. Will your stones be washed away?

    1. Thank you! And, yes, those stone spirals probably only lasted a few hours until the tide came in.
      Yes, where is Mitzi? Has she flown south for winter?

  5. These pictures are rather reminiscent of Kings Heath at the weekend.
    Buggrit I've just cum again.

    1. Again? You'd better get yourself down to Kings Heath before you're depleted!

Tickle my fancy, why don't you?
