Still here.

I met up with an old friend today, on the Prom.  "How are you?" he asked.  "Struggling."  I replied, always honest me.  "But you are out!"  Indeed.  He has Parkinsons.  He holds down a job, indeed he was on call from Christmas Day til 8 a.m. on New Years Day.  As a joiner for the Council.  So... I will battle on.

Weather it is one thing you cannot rely on!  Today was sunny.  No wind. Okay it was cold. I can cope with that although the lungs struggle.

There were 3 Surfers.  They make it look so easy.  Well this one did.


Great Black Backed Gull.

Black Headed Gulls.  There were others but this lot posed.

Another friend on the beach.  Ace photographer.  I snapped him.  And he snapped me.

I need to buy a new hat.

Today's art work.  Oystercatcher.  Of course. When one's inspiration disappears paint in the comfort zone.  Pen and ink.

Managed to watch the rest of the Jurassic Park dvd.  It has now gone into the charity bag.  I still do not know whether the good dinosaur survived or not.  I expect there will be a sequel....  If I am still here.

what an inspiration that beach and surf is,, it looks cold though,,I can't imagine surfing but those suits must keep you warm, you keep going and thats all that counts many don't put out the effort to even try,,when we quit trying we might as die. I like that the photographer snapped you and you snapped him lol,,

I am so happy that you were able to get out today and enjoy the beach and birds. It does look very cold. Take care and Happy New Year.
