A favourite place

This week the photo challenge from the Daily Post is for a favourite place.

One of my favourite places is a beach. I enjoy walking along it in all seasons. The photo is from a windy day in January. As I have only visited the foreshore at high tide in the last few weeks, I am feeling quite deprived!


Battered beach and crumbling cliffs

The effects of the elements on the man-made and natural scenery at the beach are an obvious interpretation of the theme of this challenge from Krista and the Daily Post

The breakwaters or groynes take a battering, which helps protect the beach. Without the groynes the shingle would move farther. Pebbles still reach the foreshore. The cliffs are being eroded by waves and weather.

A large number of people braved the cold on New Year’s Day to raise money for the RNLI (whose volunteers were there to keep them safe) and other charities.

In which I was cheeky

This week the photo challenge from the Daily Post is Cheeky .

I spotted these cheeky characters and others at the August Bank holiday weekend. I was cheeky enough to ask them if I could take a photo and post it on the internet. I have no idea who they were, but they were just doing this for fun. I also cheekily joined in a conversation between a child and an adult, who were both right about which animals they had seen!
