Another early morning, pre-work wander along the promenade yesterday began with a rather ominous sky on the horizon. However, it apparently decided not to make landfall on the North Norfolk coast, and buggered off out to sea, maybe to pay Norway or Denmark a visit?
Anyway, the drama was far from over as not only was there a false moon rising, but the Triffids were on the move...
|This groyne caught me unawares.|
|It loomed out of the sea as I was admiring the sunlight sparkling on the gentle ripples.|
|No ships on the horizon today (and by "today" I mean yesterday)|
|That's not the Moon peeking out from over the cliffs. Rather, it is only the radar dome at RAF Trimingham (last seen here).|
|Oh, I know I normally take photos without people in them, but this rather cute young man was the only other person down on the beach at 6:30am. He was sitting on the sand watching the sun rise when I first walked past (and we exchanged a brief morning greeting).|
|Oh, Christing hells...|
|This is the delicate little foot/hoof print of a muntjac deer (my fingers included for comparison). They quite often pop down on to the beach from the cliffs, and will even swim should circumstances warrant it.|
|The common orchids on the cliffs are beginning to bloom|
|There's a different type of orchid amongst these ox-eye daisies. Can you spot it?|
|Yes, a bee orchid!|
|I love this time of year when the ox-eye daisies come out|
|This is the way down to the promenade from the old Coast Road (the bit that used to join up to the High Street went over the cliff decades ago)|
