  1. So beautiful! What a lovely and colorful blog you have. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who is still trying to keep blogging alive!

  2. Was surprised to know you hadn’t seen the sea for a long time. If I lived where you do I would be walking down there for my daily exercise frequently!

    • It would probably take nearly 2 hours to walk to the beach from here, and there is a very steep hill to climb at the beginning. But I have been thinking about doing it.

      • Unless I’m wrong about where you live. I made it about 2.5-3 miles. I know when I had booked 2 nights B&B for the workshop, I had intended to go down to the beach on the other day. Didn’t know about the steep hill though. Mind you I wish there were more steep hills near me to keep me fit!!

        • Maybe you have inspired me to give it a go – it just isn’t such a nice walk and many others from my house – I am lucky – spoilt for choice! Long steep hill up and then the same down again to the sea, then repeat on the way back – not great for my poor old knees!

          • I know what you mean about knees, I have had occasional issues. Don’t let me influence you to do anything that’s unwise. I just have such a love of the sea. Hence my taking comfort from the tidal part of the Itchen It even has seaweed, but I am not sure if it is allowed to walk on the shore line so haven’t done it. A woman was letting her small son paddle there the other day but not really a good idea.

  3. Fascinating insights to your coast Sandra. We sent Cruise Ships packing early last year so none grace our harbours. Good news about the vaccine over there. Here it is just starting.

    • The whole cruise ship thing fascinates me – I would NEVER go on a cruise, so it really puzzles me that so many millions of people seem to love it. Then all those empty (ghost) vessels all over the world with a skeleton staff – there’s a film script in there somewhere.
      The Vaccine is the one thing our Government seems to have got right – they made the very sensible decision to put the Army in charge of logistics – should have done that from the start!
      Hope you get your vaccine soon.

  4. Everything is so green and blue and shimmery. Hope the vaccines soon get everything under control. It’s been well over a year since we’ve seen the ocean, but we live over 50 miles away.

    • The miracle of the vaccines is a wondrous positive isn’t it. At the beginning of our first lockdown a year ago, I prepared myself for a two year wait for freedom, and now I have had the vaccine (3 weeks ago).
      I feel extremely lucky and so grateful to the scientists, the volunteers and yes – for once, our Government, who have at last done something very right with the roll out of the vaccine.
      I hope things go well for you in the coming months. xx

  5. I am really looking forward to a walk by the sea too. It isn’t far and I could come back from Cardigan with a small detour but am trying very hard to be good!

    • It feels good to be good! At least we are doing our bit.
      I have been sticking to the 5 mile radius rule in the car and then only essential trips.
      This walk was a bit of a stretch as it wasn’t exactly essential, although it did feel like it for a sense of well-being.
      I looked on the government website to see how far we are supposed to travel for exercise and it doesn’t actually say – just says ‘locally’. Hmmm!?! Is that so that Boris can go to the Olympic Park when he wants to!

      • Here we are told to start and finish our exercise at home 😦 I doubt if anyone would challenge me if I detoured to the coast but… Hopefully soon we will be allowed a little more freedom and then I can go. Cardigan is 19 miles and Carmarthen 20 but as we are so rural with very few local services we are allowed to go there but as with exercise we should go, do what we need to and come straight home.

  6. We watched Kate Humble’s Coastal Walks on Friday – she ‘did’ the Jurassic Coast. I can’t wait to go fossil hunting – we’ve already found two in our garden.

  8. It looks like early morning. I have not seen the sea in nearly a year now, except for distant glimpses.

    • The photos were taken between about 10:45am and noon.
      Gosh nearly a year that’s a long time when you live so close – under normal circumstances that is.
      Looking forward to having walk with you along the coast path one day Deb. I would love to visit St. Non’s with you.

  9. Gorgeous views- and are all those ships cruise ships with nowhere to go?

    • Yes, there have been up to 12 cruise ships sitting in Weymouth Bay for a year now. They go off for a little pootle along the coast and then back again – must be such a strange existence, working on those almost empty ships. They all light up at night and they have been quite a tourist attraction.
