Porz Scaff

Porz Scaff

Another walk with Roger and another lovely area of coastline that we haven’t been back to for some time. It’s only about 15 mins drive from us but tucked out of the way. Big black clouds were rolling in and we had Richard Hawley playing in the car, ‘There’s a Storm A’Comin’, very apt:

There’s a storm Comin’
You’d better run
There’s a storm coming
Goodbye to the sun
There’s a storm comin’
You’d better

Run boy run
You’d better run

There’s a ship that’s sailing
Out in the night
There’s a heart that’s breaking
I think it’s mine
There’s a storm comin’
You’d better

Run boy run
You’d better run.

As it turned out the rain clouds missed us but we could see someone was getting it on the horizon. Pictures of Roger to follow.


Trevou-Treguignec

Reflections on the Beach

We drove over to Trevou-Treguignec with Roger and had a bracing walk along the beach. No pictures of Roger yet as he never sits still long enough when we are outside!

Colour v B & W

Beach at low tide

 

I thought l would play about with photoshop for a while and try my hand at HDR colour and black & white and see how they compare. The images are, again, taken on our peninsula on a very low tide. It is incredible to see how large some of the rocks are out at sea and are submerged when the tide returns but not by much. Another reason why l don’t have a boat!

So, back to the colour v B & W thing. I love both but B & W has a timeless beauty to them. I remain sat on the fence for the time being.


Sillon de Talbert

Foot prints

The Sillon de Talbert is a natural spit of sand and shingle some 3 kilometres long. It never becomes completely submerged and is home to numerous seabirds. It is situated on our ‘Presqu’ile Sauvage’, the unspoilt peninsula only a few klms up the road. When we first arrived here and were looking for houses we stumbled upon the Sillon one Sunday afternoon. There were many people there walking their dogs, children playing and people flying kites. The national kite flying championships used to be staged here.

Yesterday l had it all to myself. Its a great place to go when you feel you really need to get away from everything and everybody and even better when there is a big high tide and the water is lapping either side of the path. You can almost imagine you are walking on water. More pics to follow over the coming months.

Aldeburgh

Really Fresh Fish!

Fresh Lobster

We had another drive out today; this time to a lovely little town on the Suffolk coast called Aldeburgh. It was fairly busy considering it was Boxing Day. Mum & Jan went off looking at the shops while l snapped away on the beach. Later we went for Cream Teas in a lovely Tea Shop. Mmmmm…England at some of it’s best!
