I've realised I haven't posted here for quite a few days. A combination of laziness, lethargy and SAD I think. However today I awoke to blue skies, sunshine - and a wonderful crispy frosty morning. I went for a walk along the beach and listened to the waves gently lapping the shoreline. The air was so still that noises from the town drifted across the water. The sound of many geese came from over the hill and shore birds twittered as I moved across the sand. Oooh bliss......... so here are some "frosty morning" photos. In the photo above you can just see ice clinging to the top of the Hoy Hills.
Below is frozen seaweed! The usually soft sand in the dunes was frozen solid, and seaweed and sand crunched underfoot as I walked.
In the warmth of the morning sun the frost melted to beautiful sparkling droplets of water.
These were my companions this morning, twittering cheerfully in the warmth of the sun
