The event was very well attended this year with many onlookers and much jollity.

Happy Christmas to you all. Enjoy the day.
I tried to make a Christmas card but failed. I was going to use one of these photos as a background and write a greeting on top but although I could write the text it would not stay in place. By next Christmas I may have got it right.

The track out is glazed with ice and the slipway has taken on a new meaning. I am not a lover of 4wheel trucks but at the moment it is the only way to get up the slope. The sun is shining so the ice may ease by the middle of the day.

................ and one from the front.
We too have snow. Ok, not much but we are trying to suffer like the rest of you.
These shots were taken around eight o'clock this morning before it started to melt.

I have seen eider ducks in Scotland but not this far south before and they do come to our waters occasionally. This is a female and was on her own bobbing about on the swell.
The boat is yet another survey ship going up and down close to the shore. I know surveying can be a slow process when mapping sandbanks but the weeks they have been out there seem a bit excessive. By now they must know every grain of sand.
The pictures are new stock for the shop.
They are photos printed on canvas, some as taken and some that have been "got at" on Photoshop.

The gate at the bottom of the slipway was closed yesterday, for the first time this winter, to keep the surge at bay and was still closed this morning.
The sea is a bit quieter after yesterday`s excesses but still lively.

Garden sculpture anyone? Just a small part of the exhibition which I have been part of.
I could show the paintings, which are of a high standard,
but where to start and how long have you got?

At last I got down to the beach, what with head cold and then the rain I was getting withdrawal symptoms.

A bit hazy in the morning mist and only about a mile and half offshore................
I have not been out much this week as I have succumbed to a head cold and it has been cold (or was it me?).
The NOVA show is going well and I have sold the bell tree.

These are a few of the artists involved doing a publicity shot.
After all the messing about we had a great private view and some sales so everyone is happy.
I am now in recovery mode and playing with some more photos;

Alternative Christmas trees are the order of the day. I am taking part in a show, with local artists, in Overstrand next week and had to come up with something new. The result was a bell tree; the down side was there are 48 bells on it!

Gulls on the beach and a very quiet sea, long may this last.
Yes, I have been playing with photoshop again and I am enjoying it.

Here is a piece of driftwood which for me is treasure; it is about 3 feet long and almost to heavy to carry but I made it home.
The fishbox will be a planter in the yard next year. It comes from Devon not London as I first thought.

Yesterday I missed more than than I captured on camera. There was a kingfisher flashing down the stream, a flock of long-tailed tits in the trees and the first skeins of geese flying in from the sea.
