Sunday Picture Post: Sunday on the Shore

While this covid lockdown continues, I have a choice for walks: the estuary or the shore. Hope you like the sea

A walk through town to reach the beach…

7:40 am 17 Jan 2021

The Blue Hour. Everything’s blue and, to my eyes, seem blurred

Britannia Pier: 17 Jan 2021

The pier’s end deck. It’s unbelievable that just 20 yrs ago the smaller ships could still moor here. Now the sea only visits briefly, and that in rough storms. This is due to shifting sands

17 Jan 2021

Still waiting for the sun to rise. BTW that’s not seaweed on the wrack-line, it’s sea-mat… see this week’s Tuesday Treat

17 Jan 2021

At last…

17 Jan 2021

The risen sun paints the sky gold

17 Jan 2021

It paints the sand and stones as well

17 Jan 2021

Tide incoming…

17 Jan 2021

This immature gull stands guard

17 Jan 2021

While the sanderlings scuttle around in search of fresh tidbits brought by the waves

17 Jan 2021

I can’t see this without seeing white horses galloping into shore

17 Jan 2021

The incoming tide is forcing me back from the firmer sand of the surf-&-wrack-line. Time to retreat to the dunes instead (see last Tuesday’s Treat: Dune Community). As the dunes give way to the village of Caister-on-Sea, the ubiquitous but colourful gorse invades

17 Jan 2021

Fungi, can’t go for a walk without they appear. This is a yellow brain; it has a preference for gorse

17 Jan 2021

Caister Lifeboat Station… the end of the walk; time to turn around and walk back, though via the village and along the road

17 Jan 2021

This is run by volunteers, funded entirely by donations

17 Jan 2021

And finally… to give a little flavour of the place, a car park full of tractors and small fishing boats

17 Jan 2021

Enjoy the road walk-home!

  3. wonderful use of the transition from blue hour to gold hour and what a beautiful place you live in. btw, I can’t see a breaking wave without thinking of the river scene from LOTR. 🙂

    What a cute downtown! Seems very welcoming (well, in non-COVID times, at least). Loved the pictures of the waves. I miss getting down to the beach to watch them myself.

    I always think of the shore eroding away over there in Norfolk and Suffolk, not about how the shifting sands sometimes add beach. Thanks for the photographic and memorial evidence!
