giraffe stick

21st July 2016, Newton Bay, 6am

6am is both cool and quiet.  Daisy had a game with her pal Floyd then padded along beside me sometimes chasing the ball, sometimes watching it roll into the sea.


I thought this stick's shadow resembled a giraffe

walking slow enough to see

20th July 2016, Embleton Bay, 7am



20th July 2016, Football Hole, 5pm


Things we might walk past... The lichen is here all year round but the burnet moth and the beautiful wild flowers are just here for a while...A nice by-product of being a photographer is that I notice little things as I walk past (so it takes me ages to get anywhere!)




I can't identify this tiny cranesbill in the dunes.


As we walked back I snapped Daisy in the long grass

usual time, usual place

19th July 2016, Embleton Bay, 6:30 am

Sunny beach awaits
A day for shorts and sandals
And toes in the sea

A beautiful morning down on Embleton Bay; already 22C (hot!) at 6:30am. This coble reports for fishing duty every day in his usual spot at the mouth of the burn. It just happens to also be scenically located across the bay from the castle...







19th July 2016, Newton Point, 9pm

It turned into a very hot, busy day.  26C inside and out.

By 9pm it had called down to 19C and was very quiet on the beach.  Just me, the dog and a billion sand fleas nibbling my ankles...

quiet early

18th July 2016, Embleton Bay, 6:30am

Nice and early is the only way to get a quiet beach at this time of year. We chased and dodged and played under interesting skies then we headed home leaving footprints and paw prints for the next person...





18th July 2016, Newton Point, 6pm

Very calm sea, not a breath of air, the clouds reflected on the smooth water.

Wind

15th July 2016, Beadnell Bay, 5pm

A little dog on a big empty beach...



She had the wind in her fur and there was something interesting on the wind

sunny for a while

14th July 2016, Embleton Bay, 8am

A beautiful warm morning that lasted as long as we were on the beach before clouding over.  By then we didn't care.

A PhotoWalk around the bustling Seahouses harbour. We kept away from the crowds a bit.
