On the beach


As I drove into town this morning the sea looked like a sheet of glass and shopping was momentarily forgotten as the pull towards the water was too hard to resist.


The deckchairs were all out lined up waiting for customers and someone had already made a sandcastle before 9 o'clock in the morning!


The video isn't billiant as I was trying to capture the waves rather than the views!




 There was even some early sunbathers, getting the best position on the sand!


I couldn't resist a quick paddle even though it meant sand in my shoes for the rest of my shopping trip!


As I finished my shopping the beach was getting more busy and with good weather forecast all weekend it looks as if it will be a busy weekend down on the beach.


I hope the sun shines for you whatever you are doing this weekend.

  2. I love the sea and the waves, too! Hope the sun shines for you and me, too, but unfortunately or luckily, I'll be working in my garden instead of going to the seaside ;)

  3. I don't think I've ever seen the sea in the UK looking so calm. Love the early sunbathers too, don't they look chilled out!

  7. I love that Punch and Judy tent, it's been years since I saw one of those. I love the beach when it is deserted like that xxx

  16. I really like the early mornings, before everyone is up and milling about. Love the seagulls on the beach-they look very comfortable. The sun has been shining all day.

  19. What a beautiful setting.

    Our beach has been lovely lately, but the sun is tending to come and go all day. Right now it is out, but I am busy trying to finish up a sewing project.

  21. I love the sound of the sea, it's very soothing. I couldn't help noticing the bright clock on one of your pictures, do you know if there's a story behind it?

    1. The clock is the Jubliee clock it was put up in 1877 to celebrate Queen Victoria's 50 year reign.

  22. Hi Sarah, love your photos! There's certainly more a seaside holiday atmosphere down in Dorset than here in Southsea, I wouldn't be able to avoid a paddle either! We're having beautiful hot weather down south (as I'm sure you are) and the beaches are packed, as are the roads down to the seaside! Have a lovely week. Sharon

    How wonderful your beach photos are and will be a great place to spend some time on a hot summers day there.
    the light always looks so beautiful in the early morning and yes, the sea does look like glass.

  25. After watching that little video I am longing to dip my toes into the sea ... oh how I miss it when I'm away from it!

    1. Sorry I wish for some rain for you too. Having had such an awful summer last year the sun and warmth is a bit of a novelty here!
