Beach Tracks

The local county sends beach dozers to fill in the beach with small stones so that during the winter months when the sea get rough, the beach will not be eaten away by the strong waves. For now, all is calm and swimming is still enjoyable.

November Beach

Secluded, which suits me just fine. The sea is still warm and I can swim with the fish alone.

Lonely Umbrella Pole Stands Watch

Remnants of Sunbathers remain stuck in the sand. Once hordes of summer beach umbrellas lined this beach and protected the swimmers from the harmful summer rays. Now, no need for umbrellas, just come to the beach late in the afternoon for a lovely brisk swim.

All Boarded Up

In the summer months, this beach bar is brimming with people lined up for a cool drink or a quick sandwich. Now, all is quite, hibernating until the summer calls its customers again. For now, this pale wooden wall collects the heat from the winter sun and protects from the Northern wind. It's a good place to sit and soak up some late afternoon warmth.

On the Look Out

Perched high on this wooden throne, sat the bronzed lifesaver, watching over his sea subjects. Now, the throne is empty. Could we watch for winter migrations of Dolphins from here?
