|Beach Buoy and Stubborn Dog arrived in the car park at |
There was one car in the car park and it was clear that it had been there all night long.
|Ten Oyster Catchers left the cover of the dune edge , followed closely by their shadows as they headed off to sea.|
He had made a few finds, Beach Buoy laid them on the beach to photograph them and left them for others.
|They returned to the beach later that day it was 6-15pm.|
There was a breeze form the west and a hot sun in the sky.
|The beach looked like a picture postcard.|
it was the brightest of blues and the crispest of whites.
|It was 6-06 am.|
The Sun shone.
The Sea sparkled.
|As for the can... wish you weren't here!|
|Beach Buoy left the pieces he had found today.|
|It was a morning to just admire the view, enjoy your time on there.|
|The Beach began to fill as the sea came in.|
|Beach Buoy returned to the beach at 7-20 pm.|
It was busier than he had hoped.
|Time to head back... slowly.|
The car park was empty.
The sun blazed down as they headed south.
|The sea lapped like a lakeside.|
It was bright.
It was light.
|The 7 am club were the 6am club today and the usual greetings took place.|
|Beach Buoy returned to the beach at 6-30pm..|
it didn't last long and he was off.
morning beaches are better.
|The items above were found and left behind.|
|The pot / stone train was .... a keeper.|
|These were also left behind.|

|The was a greyness about the beach today.|
It seemed a darker shade or two after all of the last few weeks brightness.
|Beach Buoy spotted the net and rope separately.|
They soon became tangled as he dragged them along to the rubbish bin.

|Beach Buoy sorted the van,|
sorted himself and left.
It had been special.
Beach Buoy had been Beach Buoy
first time in a long time.
He hoped beyond hope that he would
get the chance to Beach Buoy again
|A raised dock gate didn't help it the sort cut department!|
|Finally Beach Buoy reached the light.|
Sadly Richard O'Brien was not there to present Beach Buoy with his crystal for competing the maze.
Beach Buoy parked up near to the light and walked the narrow jetty that led from it.
|There were only a few parking spaces and they felt a little vulnerable as a convoy of bright orange trucks rattled past to be loaded with gravel by a digger that was down on the beach to the south of the jetty.|
|The light stood proudly in the bright sunlight and looked magnificent.|

|A rusting anchor lies in the estuary just beyond the flood gate.|
|Beach Buoy and Stubborn Dog headed for the beach.|
The tide was way out and the sun was hot.
|They walked along the promenade that eventually led to the beach itself.|
|The beach was impressive but as with others nearby it looked very tidal. So maybe a check of the tide tables before a visit would be a good idea.|
It was such a clear day.
The Isle of Man could be seen from the beach.
|They headed back to the Promenade and admired the view.|
