A Walk to the Beach and Samples of Work Produced on the Course....

10th March 2018

Not been able to blog due to problems with the internet....

.....Thursday afternoon was beautiful so four of us went for a walk to the beach....

....due to high tides and Storm Emma a huge amount of sea weed was washed up on the beach and it was so thick it was like walking on a giant sponge...


...tide just coming in...


....love the sound of waves....



...a house on a hill overlooking the cove...


...limpets and lichen on the rocks....


....such wonderful patterns in the rocks...


....quite a variety of seaweed...


....blue sky, a hedge and woolly, very pregnant sheep!!
