Paddling and Poppies!

18th June 2014

Greetings from a very sunny Blackpool!

I was on the beach at 9am this morning.....


....beautiful blues...


.....Jack testing the water....



.....Irene having a paddle.....


...Jack in the sea avoiding the waves....



....the sun was really warm and my hips are not as big as this!!!!


The sand ripples were a great foot massage!

I talked to this fisherman who was very busy digging for bait...


.....he gave me a demonstration....


.....and showed me the results of his effort....


....the one on the left is a black worm and on the right is a lug worm, about 2 inches long and these were small according to the fisherman!

He said it was much harder to find them in warm weather as they burrow deeper.

I thanked him for all this information and commented the procedure looked quite vigorous, his reply was," yes it is especially when you are 76"!!!

:::::

Reluctantly headed for home, as I was gardening in the park, but couldn't resist taking these photos on the way .....

...poppies growing wild.....





....lovely colour....


.....so beautiful....


...think I feel a poppy project coming on!!

Stitching news tomorrow.....
