What a beautiful sunny day it was yesterday; so we took Billy to the beach.
En route I spotted this van; a couple of rogues, if ever I saw them!
Ice cream on a warm Sunday afternoon; what better, even if giant and fiberglass.
Something to do with Football; not sure what.
Demonstrating the power of Oak tree roots, even the ancient wall yields. It's been like that as long as I can remember.
Definitely wronguns those two. Not a face nappy between them.ReplyDelete
I did see one of them plying his trade, and you're right; no mask.Delete
How could they? Breakfast not finished and I'm clutching my pearls.Delete
I think I remember that red brick building behind the icecream, somewhat like the Blackpool Hilton.ReplyDelete
It's the old Metropole, now called The Hilton. Brighton's next best after The Grand.Delete
The power of nature is paramount be it tree roots or storms such as we've had the last few days. Could we have some of your sun please.ReplyDelete
I saw on the news that you'd had stormy weather. It's been quite nice here, and is sunny again today.Delete
Just think who would have been around when that oak was just a tiny acorn.ReplyDelete
Isn't that wall wonderful. Nothing stands in the way of an OAK.Delete
It's nice to spot quirky images from one's immediate environment. Anyone might think that you are an artist!ReplyDelete
No chance of that YP!Delete
Wall to wall blue sky after the storm has more or less passed through. Beautiful oak.ReplyDelete
Many of the trees in the churchyard came down in the storm of 1987. We happened to be in Brighton at the time, and the devastation was shocking.Delete
What a magnificent tree.ReplyDelete
And strong enough to lift a wall.Delete
January at the beach in the sunshine sounds perfect.ReplyDelete
It was, but lots of people everywhere. It was almost like Summer.Delete
Lovely to see some photos from someone else's walk. A great selection from BrightonReplyDelete
I took a lot more, but these were the most fun (I think).Delete
It was a lovely walk, but as always when the sun shines; far too many people at the beach.Delete
The last one brings memories. About five blocks from where I live now, there used to be a big old estate that was a mental hospital and part had a low stone fence like that one with a walking/biking path alongside it. All that remains now is a couple of the original buildings which are used for other things and the rest of the space is modern (ugly) townhouses with nowhere near enough parking spaces.ReplyDelete
Clear away the beautiful past, and replace it with the ugly modern (and, of course, forget to supply parking spaces).Delete
The two fellows in the truck picture have to be scoundrels. Their black hats give them away.ReplyDelete
As well as their shades!Delete
