As the nuns who taught me at my seaside Convent School would have said, "Bracing Dear, and very good for you!"
We have managed a few walks in between squalls, and the weather is supposed to be improving, we are watching the barometer with interest and anticipation!
Happy New Year to you and yours,
|Leaden skies and sea|
|Still stunningly beautiful|
|My daughter gazing out at the ocean|
(the raincoat was mine when I was a child - so over
40 years old - impressive thriftiness for 2013!)
|Seaweed uprooted from the seafloor and thrown on the|
sand by the violent storms
|Cold and bleak|
|Only the sound of curlews, gulls|
and the constant thud of the sea.
