Along the sea wall.. it's not all about fishing!



Yesterday was the perfect 'almost end of winter' day.. I took these shots around three in the afternoon and in between the clouds there was still a touch of blue.. Walking along the sea wall there were the usual sprinkling of anglers but it was the three below that caught my eye.. Not a bad spot to people watch and enjoy the afternoon sun I guess, not sure how comfy it would have been :)


Waves crashing on the shore and the melodic strains of the ukulele floating in the breeze, niiiiice... 


... and of course below, the inevitable 'texter' :) but for me the star of these shots are the clouds, the delicate purple hues très belle don't you think? I hope you're having a good week, happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  8. I love the sound of waves crashing on the shore and I bet the ukulele sounded great with the waves. The clouds are beautiful indeed.
