The North sea had turned to foam.....

....and had churned itself up overnight and got itself into a right lather. The gate had been closed which is very unusual this early in the season. It was not a very high tide but a lot of wind was driving the sea up the beach.

A shot of my workshop where outdoor sculpture is in production, and I mean production, as the summer is nearly over and I am behind myself.
Some of the smaller pieces are going to Blickling Gardens tomorrow and the larger ones to Felbrigg walled garden in October.

Black and white flag means surfers only.....

....... so no swimmers in this area.
The life guard was out there on his rescue board floating around enjoying the swell.

The boys were catching the waves, often two at a time.

I must have a word with them because if they all stand up at once I don't know which one to follow and end up missing them all.

Red seaweed all over the beach.

This is one of the signs that summer is coming to an end.

Ater some heavy rain I got a shot of the beach huts in a large puddle, just what I needed for an exhibition in October.

More action from Tuesday

Having taken more than two hundred photos it takes some time to go through them all so here are a few more.

Wait for me....

...It was all happening this morning.
After a miserable weekend the surf got its act together.
The boys were out in force riding the swell and even one of the lifeguards took out the yellow rescue board for a bit of fun.

We were forecast surf....

.... so the big boys turned up, but no, the waves were too small; nice new-looking red board.

A very small Sea Rocket in flower. The dry spring and summer has really not suited them this year.

I have been invaded.....

.... in the comments by someone banging on about Tiffany Lamps, they are not my thing so here is some stained glass instead.
I know I have not been around much, sorry about that, I hope normal service can be maintained.

Two plants from the cliff bottom:
Prickly Saltwort, which I thought might have been Sea Rocket when it was much younger, but no.
The Sea Rocket has not appeared this year so fewer butterflies.
The second plant is Tansy and has at last come into flower.
