Walking on the beach

After a day of cloud and rain the sun appeared as if magic, creating a pink peachy glow, before disappearing over the horizon. It just gave us enough time to walk down to the beach.



This is Eype Beach. It is so good to be able to reach this beach on foot. After a few days with rain the steep footpath we took was a bit muddy and slippy in places. For once I didn't fall over and get covered in mud!


  If the wind is in the right direction we can often hear the waves crashing on this beach from our garden!




I'm afraid someone wasn't impressed with watching the sun set - digging on the beach was much more fun! Hopefully Tavi won't start doing it in the garden too! (It's still impossible sometimes to get him to pose for pictures - here you can see just what I mean!)





Sorry I have been out of the blogging world for a few weeks, I have had the first bad cold of the winter that has taken two weeks to shake off!

I have just read an amazing story of how a wedding ring lost by a Dorset lifeboat man was found this weekend after being lost 6 years ago in Weymouth harbour. Have you ever lost anything valuable at the seaside?

Wishing you a good week!

  1. What a beautiful glow after the rain! How wonderful to be working in your garden and hear ocean sounds...all I hear are cars and trucks while working in the garden :( Glad you are feeling better!

  2. I read that story about the ring a little while ago too - it was amazing! Beautiful photos as always! Glad you are feeling better now.

  3. Beautiful photos Sarah. Love the colour of those clouds on your coastal path walk. Also loved the look on Tavi's face whilst the photo was being taken on the beach, bless him, he was waiting for you.

  4. First, hope you are better. I am not visiting much because of a bad hand that keeps me from using the computer much.

    Second, don't you love listening to the waves as you fall asleep!'

    Third, our daughter lost her retainer on the beach once and Steve made her scour the sand until she found it 1 hour later!

  5. What beautiful tranquil photos! It looks like you had a lovely day, and Tavi is so very sweet :) When I was a child I lost my wristwatch at Barton on Sea beach by the sea defences. It was a summer evening and I only found out once we'd got home, so my dad drove us back to the beach (45 minutes each way!) and after a bit of hunting we found it. What an amazing story about the wedding ring - a real happy ending :)

  10. Sarah, I love all your photos, but that first one is over-the-top amazing....and of course the ones of Tavi are always my favorite. I'm glad you are finally over your cold.

  11. Sarah, it is great to hear that you are feeling better and good to see you back in Blogland. Your photographs of your beach are stunning, what a magical place to be at sunset. Tavi is adorable and looks to have far too much energy to sit and pose. Jan xx

  12. Wonderful views! The wave of flu is on its high in Germany in the moment, my brother is ill since weeks. Get well soon, Sarah!

  13. Looks like you were the only ones enjoying the beautiful scenery. The others missed out on a treat. How nice that you live close enough to the beach to be able to get to it even when there is not much of the day left.

  14. Nice you are back again and feeling better. Flue and cold make many victims this winter. The views over the sea are wonderful and never boring. Tavi enjoys it too, better digging on the beach than in the garden, but Snarf sometimes digs in the garden too. First photo is my favourite, the colours of the sky, the sign and the gate, so very very English. It reminds me of our great walks following the many public footpaths in your country.

  15. Nature offers divine views after the rain. Watching the sunset is mesmerizing indeed although this cute doggie doesn't appreciate it very much! Hope you are doing fine Sarah!

  16. Good morning dearest Sarah and TAVI! A lovely sight indeed to find you here! I hope you recover quickly from your cold....we are almost into spring (at least you are) and I hope your jaunts in the garden and at the beach will be filled with all this beauty. Tavi is ON THE RUN! You can't keep a good westie down for long!

    So lovely to find you here this morning. Many hugs, Anita

  17. Dear Sarah
    So sorry you have been feeling under the weather - I have just got over my third cold of the winter - there are certainly plenty of virus doing the rounds. Gorgeous pictures and Tavi looks like he's having a whale of a time.

  18. Ah cute pics of doggie! I've (luckily) never lost anything at the sea. I thought I lost my favourite gloves in the service station toilets last week but I found them the other day in the hand bag I looked in 5 times before.... hmmm.

  19. Hi Sarah, sorry to hear you've been poorly. A bad cold can really take it out of us. Hope you are feeling much better. You've shared beautiful beach photos with stunning light....I must say I can't wait for a lighter evenings and warmer weather too! Wishing you a lovely week. Sharon x

  20. The sunset, the sea and Tavi...nothing could be more perfect. How wonderful to hear of the found wedding ring. That is so romantic. I cannot recall losing anything valuable at sea but I have lost things while moving that I have prayed would find their way back to us.

  21. Happy to hear you are feeling better Sarah! Your photo's always make me wish I lived closer to the sea. To just go out or a short walk and empty my head. You never know, maybe one day :-)

    Take care!

    Have a good week!

  22. Gosh, the colours in that first hot are beautiful. And the other pictures are lovely too. Tavi looks so funny digging - I hope he doesn't do the same in your garden - I'm afraid Susie does in ours, so she doesn't get out there unsupervised. Hope you get fully well soon. Juliex

  23. The story about that wedding ring was amazing wasn't it! Tavi looks very happy, digging or not! So funny that he likes to dig in the pebbles, I would think that far too hard work! Beautiful sunsets and views!! I hope that you are all over your cold and ickies very soon. xx

  24. Ooh Sarah! That first photo is so atmospheric ... love it! xxx

  25. Hello Sarah,
    Those are gorgeous photos. What a beautiful place and it is a place that you can just sit for a long while.
    Little Tavi, adorable. : )
    Have a lovely day, blessings.

  26. I love that first picture! It must be wonderful to live where you can be in your garden and hear the waves crashing in the distance. Tavi looks like he was enjoying himself, even if he didn't notice the sun set. :-)

  27. What a beautiful time for a beach walk. I love the colors, you captured the whole scene and mood really well. I hope you're feeling better soon.

  28. Hopefully you'll soon be yourself again and feeling a lot better. I love your photos they're stunning. There's something quite ethereal about being the only person on a beach as the sun is going down. Take care. P x

  29. Ah Sarah - as usual your photos are good for the soul. That Tavi is just too cute. Glad you didn't fall and I hope you are feeling much better each day. I can't say I ever lost anything at the beach or found anything either. We borrowed metal detectors once from a friend in hopes of finding beach treasure. We had no such luck but lots of fun. xo kim

  30. Sorry to learn that you have been under the weather Sarah, but pleased that you are making good progress. Somehow this winter seems to be going on, and on,and on, so it is lovely to see the special spot that you have now made your home.
    Wonderful story about the ring - someone that I knew once found a wonderful diamond ring on a beach in the Caribbean, it is thought that it might have dropped off someones finger when they were on a cruise.

  31. We're all in love with that wee Tavi Sarah! I hope you're feeling better.

  32. Lovely to see your photo's and that after your cold you are feeling better and have been able to get out and about.

    You can't beat a walk on the beach.

    Have a good week

    All the best Jan

  33. Tavi is adorable, moving or still! Aged 6 I accidently dropped my father's good camera into the harbour at Lyme Regis ... luckily the tide was almost out, the water wasn't deep, and it stuck in the mud, so he got it back when the waves had completely retreated. He also managed to repair it. But I wasn't popular for a while!

    I hope you're feeling completely better soon x

  34. Stunning photographs - absolutely wonderful. I can almost hear the sound of the waves as I look at them. You're so lucky to be within walking distance of the sea, it's something I've always loved so much about our holidays in Cornwall. Tavi looks so cheeky - what a rascal he is! I discovered today who's been eating the stonecrop I planted so that it could drape over a large zinc planter - a certain ducky creature! Bad Flora!!!

  35. The photos are lovely. How lucky to be so close to the sea.
    Hope you're feeling better. There's a lot that going around here in NY - one of those bugs that just doesn't like to leave.

  36. That is a beautiful place for a hike and for photographing - love that first photo!
    Hope you're feeling better.

  37. I too am sorry to hear you were ill, Sarah :( While I never lost anything at the beach, I wrote a play for elementary school kids called the Blue Bottle Mystery. I imagined them finding a blue bottle at the beach and still have the blue bottle I used as a prop :) Tavi may be camera shy, but is precious to see from any angle :) xx
