Glorious picture, wish I was there!
It was a gorgeous place to spend 5 days.
I love sea views and your pictures are wonderful. Winter time, I agree, is especially nice. We live very close and go often, when the tourists go home.
Same here. As soon as the schools return in early September, the seafront here is much quieter and better. I’m already counting the days to those golden autumnal days.
Very peaceful Hugh – sea views from wherever you stand.
It was a beautiful, small island full of various wildlife, Linda.
I would love to see that Hugh. Nature at its finest!
Very evocative photo, Hugh. I especially liked how you cropped the image, leaving a long foreground.
No cropping involved, Janis. That’s the photo as I took it. But the foreground does stand out, doesn’t it?
Interesting perspective – the old and the eternal. Something very peaceful in that shot.
Thank you. I find living by the sea very peaceful (once the summer tourists have left).
What a view with and from those ruins. Both have their charm.
They do. I was surprised the ruins had survived, especially the British weather.
Great quality of work back then!
What an awesome view – love the sea as we grew up close to the sea and still miss it.
Thanks, Esmé. Living by the sea is the best.
I was unable to leave you a comment on your post. Kept getting a message saying ‘Forbidden’ when pressing the leave a comment button.
Hugh this is so odd and bizarre that you have this issue, I will have to get IT to look into it once again
I tried taking screenshots of the error, but your website won’t allow me to take screenshots. Hopefully, it was just a clutch, Esmé.
Sorry for all the issues Hugh. At least we know you can now leave a message again. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Gremlins
Wow, what a clear day at the ocean, Hugh! Too many foggy days I had spent in San Diego (June “Gloom) and a few in the San Francisco Bay area…you hope to see ocean scapes, but nope, just fog! I imagine you may get coastal fog, but as you said in a comment, sea air is a must, fog or no! Where is this and was that some sort of historical building?
Hi Terri, we had fog and heavy drizzle on Tuesday this week. August can often be a grey, dull month. However, most foggy days and nights come in the autumn and winter.
This photo was taken on a small island off the south coast of Devon in Southern England. The building may have been a lookout or even a place where birdwatchers could look at local birdlife, as the area is well populated by many birds. Sadly, it’s only daytrippers that go there now. If you don’t make the last ferry to the mainland, you are sleeping under the stars.
I bet it gave you inspiration for this week’s 99-word-story!
I’d already written my flash before I found this photo, Gloria. Watch out for it on Friday.
Similar to the Island I just spent a few days on. Tory Island off the coast of Donegal.
This island had nowhere to stay. If you didn’t catch the last ferry back, you’d have to spend a night under the stars.
I love both of the sea views. I too love being by the sea, even though I was raised inland.
Thank you. Living by the sea is an incredible experience. I especially like it during the winter months.
Lovely, Hugh. I miss the sea.
The sea air is one of my ‘must haves,’ Cathy. Even in the winter months, I love being by the sea.
Lovely! I see two! 😀
I’m glad you see two, too, Michelle. That’s what I see.
It was lovely.
Good morning from Boston, Hugh! This looks like a wonderful, peaceful place for reflection and taking in the sights.
It was a lovely place, Liesbet. Not busy, with just the sound of the sea and seagulls. A great place for reflection.
Sounds like you’re on the way back?
I flew back from Belgium to Massachusetts yesterday, which was exhausting, hot, and long. Now I’ll stay a week with my mother-in-law in our “room above the garage” to be with family and see doctors for check-ups. I fly back to Maya and Mark in Oregon (west coast) next Tuesday. It’s about time. Three weeks apart is a bit long and challenging.
I hope you’ll find that the time will soon go, Liesbet. Time can sometimes have a habit of going fast unless you keep thinking about it. Doesn’t sound like it was a very comfortable flight. But that flight back to Oregon will be much better knowing who’ll be waiting for you at the other end.
Hope you managed to get plenty of Belgium chocolate packed to bring home.
Haha, you hit the nail on the head, Hugh. I actually left some clothes with my parents and stuffed my jacket pockets to be able to bring Belgian chocolate back to the US. I was only allowed to bring a personal item on this trip (as I didn’t want to pay extra for carry-on luggage), so my small backpack was half filled with clothes and personal belongings and half with chocolate as gifts. 🙂
You had a great plan, Liesbet. And it sounds like it worked. I wouldn’t be giving any away as gifts, though.
🙂 Except, I picked a few flavors I don’t really like. It’s all about the purpose of the purchase.
What a peaceful place
It was beautiful and peaceful. Just the sound of the sea and the seagulls.
