Last weekend with the tide out and the evenings being marginally warmer and lighter now that spring is here, Mum and I went down to the coast to get some photos and take in the sea air. I even dipped my toes in the water and while it was fairly cold, it was exhilarating none the less! Roll on those hazy, summer evenings when walking along the shore at 9pm is possible again.
These rockpools are always my favourite thing about low tide. I've been able to spot many a little seaside creature hiding away among the pebbles here. My favourite spot at this beach was a pipe fish that had found it's way into one of the deeper rock pools along the headland, and was gliding effortlessly around. I thought it was a piece of seaweed at first before it moved!
It was around 5 o'clock in the afternoon, and the light was still in the sky as families walked their dogs along the surf. When I first got to the beach there were two gorgeous ponies trotting along the sand - it was so lovely and reminded me of spring and summer holidays spent volunteering at my local riding stables - I still love that horsey smell today.
St Bee's head is now decorated with flourishes of yellow as the gorse bushes have unfurled their blossoms to welcome in springtime. Seeing the hedgerows lit up with bursts of yellow around this time of year is always a joy.
While it may have been a little overcast, watching the waves roll in is always a tonic for the soul and the sound of the sea always rejuvenates me. There is definitely something to be said for reconnecting with nature when you're feeling low or down, it's always an instant boost!
I'm linking up with the lovely Jen for Photo Friday today.
Hope you've all had a wonderful week, and will have an equally wonderful weekend.
If not, I'm sending you good vibes!
