The Prom today. I had to shuffle the car round till I found a space for the disabled where the next car had not parked on the hatched area. This is for people like me who have a walking aid, or in some cases to wheel in a wheel chair...... So first I got a parking space then could not get the chariot out. So - eventually I got to lean over the railings.
Our beach is never packed like Brighton. But Sundays I should avoid. They seem blissfull unaware that the tide is coming in....
The Jet Skis are noisy. Scare off all the wildlife and I sometimes fear they are not aware of small children paddling in the direction they are heading.
The two photographs above were taken by my friend Michelle Scott. Yesterday afternoon some children got into difficulties in the sea, there are some strong cross currents which one least expects. The Coast Guard helicopter was in attendance and our Lifeboat. Fortunately the kids were rescued and attended to quickly with no harm done apart from a big scare. This has happened before some years ago, and there was talk about putting signs, and even flags up, where swimmers should not go. Perhaps now they will.
A video of work in progress on painting the newly insulated walls in the shedudio.
Do you remember the kids toy of a bird on a pole going downwards and pecking as it went?
Our Juvenile Woodpecker doing the same - so funny. And a devil to catch on the camera!
One more oddball in the garden is Tufty. A Collared Dove with a strange tuft on its head. I have taken loads of photos but no-one can make out whether it is a growth or a bad hair day. It visits the shedudio feeding station every afternoon, alone.
Whatever it is there is little I can do about it. It feeds, drinks, and then flies off.
