Sea Shore

Above is  a favourite subject of mine, an old boat hauled up on the shore for the last time at Sandside pier. Bulrushes grow out threw old creels.

Further along the shore - the power of the sea, slowly eroding the shore line. This was once a workshop probably built sometime in the mid 1800s.

Below a house "teetering on the brink! Uninhabited for many years.  Each winter I expect to find the chimney on the shore!

Below gentle ripples along the coral sand at Sandside

It amazes me the variety of seaweed all in such a small area.

    I recognize that boat! It is a classic old beauty, and I've used the photo I took during our visit on cards. I'll send you one!

  2. Thank you for reminding me of your beautiful shore-line. My own photo of that boat is one of my favourites from our Orkney holiday.

  3. Louise - oooh yes please do send me a copy!!

    Dancingbeastie - I hope you come back again soon - there's lots more photos for you to take!
