A walk on the beach...
On sunny days like today a walk on the beach is a MUST! Calm sunny days are too precious to miss any time but especially in Autumn or Winter. These views may get a bit repetitive....this is my favourite walk. But hopefully you get to join me on it in all the seasons.
Of course on any walk the hens must come along too.... for a short while anyway
And Button. I love it when the sun is low.... it's the only time of year I can pretend I'm BIG by looking at my shadow!
The tide was coming in. I loved hearing it passing along the old stone pier at Sandside
The burned out boat is full of water now. Button has to inspect....
The other wee boat is still floating...
And the Hamnavoe Ferry sails off "south" to Mainland Scotland
Back on land the power of the sea continues to erode. This old croft house edges closer to the shore after each storm. The old wall near it fell onto the shore years ago, even before I moved here.
The old farm buildings stand out stark against the blue sky
I love how the low sun picks out the contours of the land from the Hoy Hills to the dips in the fields
Meanwhile, the old cockerel waits at the door for me to return.....
Hope you enjoyed the walk!
