Definitely Deadwood…

I spent a couple of hours in Bembridge this evening and had a bit of a mooch about on the beach. I’ve been here before and the first thing that strikes you when you get to the there is the Lifeboat Station so it was a case of been here, done that so I had a little wander a bit further afield and found something amazing.

I’m not 100% sure exactly what’s happened but I would expect it to be natural erosion but about 400 metres West from the station there’s a clump of fully grown trees protruding from the shingle beach, some of them right on the high tide line. All of them dead but still standing solid and sound. Normally the landslip of the erosion would have felled them but not these.

They look as though they’ve slumped into the sea and whilst the brine has killed them they’re roots were strong enough to keep them upright and resolute against the relenting tide… This won’t last and I know they’re fighting (or not ’cause they’re dead but you know what I mean…) a loosing battle and it’s going to be interesting keeping an eye on them in the coming years.

And, because I’m a sucker for leading lines I had crowbar at least one shot of the walkway to the lifeboat station in, featuring yours truly! ;o)

A smile, a chat and a shed load of trinkets. 

My aim tomorrow is to walk into the nearest town and really get to see a bit of Boa Vista life. It’s our last full day here and while I’ve done the holiday maker thing I feel that I should take myself out of the comfort zone and take a chance, trust my fellow beings! 

And, Fatima, if you ever see this post. Your shop looks amazing just before sunset. X

I Keep Telling The Cats

dsc_7204-animationHappiness is a ball, a wave and a complete disregard of wetness…

They still hate me… Grumpy funkers!

And just a little tip, If you take shots in burst mode and upload them to Google Photos it will automatically create a Gif file. Maybe I’ll just get some photos of the cats next time… Not moving… Looking grumpy…

Peace Peeps!

Manual 365/355.2 Still Optimistic

This morning was amazing, the beach was perfect and the sea was alive. No one apart from the dog and his owner and a brilliant sunrise I’m going to have to spend a couple of hours later getting all of the shots sorted and into a google album. I’ll post the link here tomorrow but in the mean time here’s one I couldn’t not post. Everything was going great so I pushed my luck, dropped my camera to ground level and shot the incoming foam…dsc_5761Living close to the edge… (wet, sandy camera! 😉

Now, Off to Mwnt!

Peace Peeps! xxx

Manual 365/355.1 The Great Optimist…

This place makes things…dsc_5721It makes happy dogs. I know most dogs are happy whatever the weather but there’s something that just pops when these guys get too the beach…

It kinda works on photographers too!

Needed an early (dark) start to get the mile and a half to Tresaith but it was most definitely worth it!

Peace Peeps!

A moment of solidarity, co-ordination between father and son and 15 seconds of magic that will remain with us forever…dsc_5519

“It looks like you’re both peeing…” was the critique from Kayleigh…

We weren’t but the damage is done, this will forever be known as the peeing photo. In the mean time, this won’t be there tomorrow.

“Every little bit helps!” said the old lady pissing into the sea!

Peace Peeps!
