Sunny Saturday

It was such a lovely day today, that we had an impromptu trip to the seaside. We went to Reculver, via Beltinge which has a beautifully cluttered charity shop. See the little vase on the right? I wish I had bought that but I didn't. It had a very pleasing shape to hold. Ah well, can't buy them all!We walked along a totally deserted beach. Not too much beachcombing today, though a few flints with interesting shapes, a seaglass marble, and a mermaid's purse, all came home with me.
This moss is just so green! As it is growing on a rock that spends half its time under the sea, is it sea moss?
The cliffs are very soft mud and are eroding fast. There are shells in there, and some kind of birds use them to nest-lots of little square holes.
We had delicious fish and chips in Herne Bay and then a two hour nap when we got home-totally worn out!

Difficult to pass on that adorable vase! Well done, you! Sometimes I have to walk around shop holding what I covet - then I return it to the shelf. A moment of ownership seems to do the job.
The moss or seaweed is the greenest! SO GOOD!
Beautiful seaside. the advantages of having a car!

I SO covet, "an impromptu trip to the seaside." Thanks for sending along a taste of your visit. I will imagine my toes in the sand looking for sea glass with you and Linda Sue.

Nothing like a trip to the beach, especially when there are not too many people around. Fish and chips make the trip just perfect! Have a good last week of term. Ros

Great day out, the charity shop shelves look a bit like mine!!
The stuff on the rock looks like the blanket weed that grows in ponds, so maybe it's related, don't know much about the sea. You've made me want a day out to the coast before the summer kicks in...

Oh, what fun... a day by the sea! Lovely views from Reculver... And I like the kitchen gadgets from that shop! Too many temptations in life, isn't there? ;o) Happy Week, Sarah ((HUGS))

The sea always offers something to look at. I appreciate it more and more. It looks like a lovely day.
