Saturday stroll

Husband's been poorly for over a week so when he decided he was fit to walk again but didn't want to do anything too energetic we wandered along the sea front - just as far as Ripples ice Cream Parlour (where, incidentally, I discovered they sell nutella ice cream).
I stopped to enjoy the view while Husband did the David Bailey bit - mostly snapping scenery not me, you understand. Scenery's much more interesting ...

These little birds almost blended in with the background. It was only because they moved that we saw them at all.

It's not everyday you come across Ganesh on Swansea Beach.

My attempt at an arty shot. Entitled 'Rocks with Swansea'.

And another attempt, this time trying to catch the sunlight on the water. Husband stood with his arm held up to stop the sun shining directly into the lens.

We stopped to see what this photographer was after.  

It turned out to be a wheat-ear, a migrant visitor just passing through on its way to Africa. (We were told this somewhat reluctantly by the surly photographer.) Husband, unembarrassed by the photographer's huge lens, insisted on getting our camera out too.

It looks like George has found something very interesting. Something worth some feverish digging. Or else he was just proudly displaying his digging skills in case you'd forgotten them.

And very fine arty shots they are.

All I read was "Nutella ice-cream." Okay, seriously though, the weather has been fantastic here, too. It's been in the high teens low 20s and sunny with clear blue skies. I can see colours like red, orange, yellow on the trees across the street from my office window and dread the day when these trees will be naked for the winter. Then comes the grey and the wet. *sigh* But I will revel in this while I can. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Liz! Watch for snail mail...

He does that, nick. All of a sudden he'll dive down and start furiously digging.

Why, thank you, cherrypie!

I think grey and wet has arrived here today, leslie!

Hi Liz, sorry to learn that your hubby has been unwell and I do hope, (for your sake), he feeling much better.
Maybe George was digging for clams for your supper....
You are so blessed, living in such a beautiful place, hardly need to go on holiday!
Love Di..xxx
