The boys are back to surf on my beach.

The surf was not ideal but well worth a go last evening.
The surf on this beach begins to be big enough in September for the grownups to ride it.
Through the summer it is usually only good for bodyboarding; something to do with the shape of the beach.
I look forward to more action

The clouds were rather good as well.

Time for a wash and brush up.

As the holidays come to an end the birds are coming back to the beach.
I know it is still August but the season is changing and it just feels different.
I am looking forward to the autumn and many more warm days.

Anyone for a swim.....

..... in the waves this morning?

I got down to the beach around 8 o'clock today, before the holidaymakers, so I had the beach to myself.

The sea was looking very clear, no sand or seaweed, almost inviting, but I am not a swimmer in the sea these days.

Another strange boat passing by.......

I know the crabs have been good this year but do they really need cranes to raise the pots?

More tree bark;
I think I must take up painting as the colours and patterns are so good.

Rain clouds over the sea.

The sea is in no need of water, unlike my pots which I must go and irrigate.

Another abstract from the beach.

A perky little fellow
of the wagtail fraternity........ I think a "pied" but a young one anyway.......

Low water on a quiet Sunday morning ....

About a year ago I got the camera and took pictures like these so I thought I would take some more.

I dread to think how many photos I have taken over the year but there are so many to take with the ever-changing beach.

I still have an awful lot more to learn but I am having a lot of fun.

Barking mad .........

We went to East Ruston Garden this afternoon.

And this is what we found.

Mundesley inshore life boat ....

..... was called out.
As far as I could tell this was not a major rescue but a minor incident that the volunteers dealt with effectively.
The Mundesley team is raised and paid for by the village and they are part of the safety measures that our beach enjoys.

Chilling out in the sun.

Here is the ginger cat from next-door-but-one enjoying the sunshine as only a cat can.

The other photo is, believe it or not, of a heron in the River Mun. This is first time I have seen one for some years and I am hoping it will return so that I can get a proper shot.

Surfing on Friday night..........

.............. first you can, then you can't.

The local boys are riding the rather small waves.
Hopefully the big tides next week will be better.

The ladybirds are still with us.

It really is a bit much, as wherever you look or walk you cannot avoid them and I can safely say there are no greenfly left in North Norfolk.

The peacock butterflies are flitting about looking handsome; always a joy.

Wait for me!

I want to join in the fun.
I was alerted to this gathering of young surfers playing on Mundesley beach.
They were having a surfing lesson in the evening sunshine. Most had surf boards but a few had bodyboards and all of them were having a wonderful time.
It was arranged by Plus One which does activity events for young people.

I thought it was a joyful sight and I understand they will be back next Friday.
Watch this space.

But where was the rain?

The rainbow over the sea is a wonderful sight. This photo is taken from the back door.

Little people on the beach, an image of summer.
I do like living by the sea.
