Blowing the cobwebs away

Husband felt like walk at Rhossili today. We intended to walk along the headland towards the Worm but the wind was ferocious and I'd neglected to take a coat with me thinking, 'It'll be fine.'
So we walked down to the beach instead (oh, my writing's gone blue!) with the what-turned-out-to-be-false thinking that it would be less windy there. The paler bands in the sand below are where it's being whisked along.

My souvenirs: a mermaid's purse and an oyster shell.

Just FYI, Mermaid's purses are actually the eggs of sharks or skates.

I love a rugged coastline. Nice photos.

I like your souvenirs. I love picking up natural things from the beach :-)

It was a fierce wind that battered my head but wasn't too cold, surprisingly, leslie.

Stu, I be a Mumbles girl and I knows that. Not to mention an oceanographer.

Thanks, Dicky.

Me too, sub.
