Narrow gaps

This week the Photo Challenge from the Daily Post is Narrow.

Earlier this year I blogged from A to Z in April here and on Sue’s Trifles, where my post for N was N is for Narrow. I posted a photo there.

My photo here is on the same theme. The breakwaters or groynes around the British coast serve to take energy from the waves and lessen the impact on the coast during stormy weather. They help prevent the sand and pebbles being washed away. The groynes themselves take a battering and have to be repaired regularly. The storms last winter were particularly severe and the damage to groynes and at least one footbridge has not yet been repaired.

It is National Marine Week from 23 July to 7 August 2016, so my choice of photos fits with this theme.  The second photo is of the Beached Art event organised by the Wildlife Trusts.

Beneath my feet (4 photos)

Beneath your feet is this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post.

Today on one of my favourite walks there was a lot going on beneath my feet.  Activity on the path included butterflies landing, resting and flying away.  There was evidence of  mammals: moles below ground had made mole hills and rabbits had left droppings.  Several moths also flitted around.

One reason I had to watch where I put my feet - unstable cliffs

As I am later with this post than usual, I’ll let the photos tell the story.
