we hadn't taken any thing to watch it happen, so with a clear sky apart from a few clouds all I got was photos of a sunny sky...
To day we planed to walk along the beach from Beadnell to Seahouses and back again.
This is the way down to the beach off the road, this photo is a reminder of past family holidays as we have spent many a happy day here, in the family we call this beach "The smelly beach", due to the amount of seaweed that can get washed up. This is good for the sea birds as it's full of insects to eat.
The sea was on it's way out leaving ridges in the sand.
Limpets and Bladder Wrack (Fucus vesiculosus)
Identification Guide for Selected Seashore Species
Oystercatchers and Bar-Tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica) we think.
We sat for a while looking back across the beach towards Beadnell, the warm sun had brought the flies out amongst the sea weed.
Pied Wagtail (Motacilla alba subsp. yarrellii) and Rock Pipit (Anthus petrosus)
were having a lovely time feeding.
We were now on the edge of Seahouses , much more rocky and higher cliffs.
The lower rock was a beautiful blue showing lines and shapes.
It's still a bit to early on in the season to look for wild flowers, but the edges of the cliffs were covered in Sedum
I will leave you with this last photo for today.
Hands up if you want to run along here and jump into the sea.
coming soon day two part two
I took over 300 photos in the past two days, finding it a little hard to narrow it down !
I love taking photos....
