Waving Marram Grasses

I took a trip down to the nature reserve along the coast at Drigg last week, where there are vast sand dunes that stretch on for miles along the coastline. The marram grass which grows here is so tough and hardy, and sharp too, that it turns into a sea all of it's own as it's buffeted about by the sea breeze and I loved watching the different shapes it created as I wandered along the shore. 

I'll definitely be coming back here to do some more exploring soon!

I'm linking up with Sue for Wordless Wednesday today.

Hope you've all had a lovely Wednesday!



  1. I need to up my identifying game! I forget things like grasses and what not haha!

    I love beach grass, it's so wavy and relaxing to watch!

  2. Marram grass reminds me of geography lessons (no bad thing - geog geeking is my jam!) We've got a nature reserve just a few miles along the coast full of the stuff.
