I've been spending a lot of time near the seaside recently. I'm probably being too optimistic by heading straight for the sea as soon as the sun comes out, but I am longing for those seaside walks in the summer again, and while I know it's still a good few months away, a girl can dream!
So when last Friday rolled around and the sun was still shining away at half 7 in the evening, Mum and I took a quick wander out and managed to spot some adorable lambs and a stunning sunset too. It was a nice end to a somewhat difficult week, so I was glad to see these scenes.
The lambs in this field were all huddled together, jumping, playing and gambolling about. It was too cute not to stop and watch them for a while, and while they were too energetic for my camera to focus on, I did manage to get this shot looking over towards St Bees' head.
As we headed home the sun began to set, and while the clouds drifted lazily over, the last few rays peered through, creating these stunning shapes. There are a couple of roads and pathways which cut through the countryside, as opposed to just using the main road back into Whitehaven, the neighbouring town, and these often mean you get some great views looking down over the countryside.
It was a beautiful sunset and a lovely, warm evening, even though there was a cool breeze in the air. Still a bit too chilly for padding at St Bees yet, but I still dipped my toes in the cold water! The mountains in the distance were bathed in sunshine as we headed home, and the daffodils still hanging around along the roadsides were bright yellow as the sun went down.
The sea was calm and still just like it was a good few weeks ago, and there was a red hue on the horizon as the sun continued to set. I'm always looking at the clouds and there were so many different shapes and shades this afternoon, as there often are.
Finishing the day with the sunshine streaming into the car with my headphones in as we travelled home. Bliss! If all evenings ended this way, I'd be a happy bunny indeed.
I'm linking up with the lovely Jen for Photo Friday today!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
