My week ends in Sussex...and some Gulls!

I'm keeping my grandson company this weekend and, as Teenagers do, he was enjoying a Saturday lie in this morning.

The forecast was for rain, but the morning dawned bright clear and sunny - so I walked down to the beach.

The sky and sea were blue and blue... and the tide was right in!

In some local beach gardens, the flowers shone in the early morning sun... I was almost alone on the beach and it was wonderful :D

Right out on the horizon, a pleasure craft seemed to glide along..

and even the gulls seemed relaxed in the morning sunshine..

some seemed to be just waking up to greet the day..

but yawning leads to sleeping..

The sea at the peak of high tide, was very gentle too... just lapping over the breakwaters.

I walked for some time just enjoying the day... and
on the way back, one of the many House Sparrows was catching insects for breakfast.

Later on in the morning J and I walked into Worthing - by now the sky was covered in much cloud and the temperature had dropped.

Still it was a good walk and in excellent company...

We bought some sandwiches and drinks and sat on the sea front to eat them. By now it was getting quite chilly but we walked to the end of the pier and back before walking home again.

A good day...

Great shots once again Tricia. Is that chives growing in the rocks? I do like gulls.

It's been a while since I walked along a beach. Enjoyed the post Tricia.

It does look like a good day, Tricia. We were cool and gloomy and rainy most of the day, but are looking forward to tomorrow which should be sunnier and warmer. Thanks for the walk in the sun!
