A sunny afternoon in which I learn a couple of things

The first is that the GPS locator on my phone is alarmingly accurate:



The second is that those interesting little black triangles in the far distance are not fins:



If I knew the first thing about the sea, which I don't, I would have realised immediately they are channel markers.

No dolphins, but some amusing sunbathing starlings and a couple of pretty little Black-headed Gulls.





And a campervan which made Bill feel very under-dressed.

  1. Love the campervan, that's really wacky - as they would say years ago "It's far out man!" Maybe I should get a paint job on mine and go all flower power (grin)

    1. The van was lovely, but definitely not subtle :)

  2. Ummmm! Old hippies maybe.......... They are still out there, even if probably in their late 60's & 70's. Looks like a lovely spot, not like our Sunday jaunt with lashing rain, massive waves & strong winds, but then it is winter here. Take care & huggles.

    1. Hi Susan, definitely not old hippies :) There is a young woman sitting in the open side door of the van but I blurred her out.
      Not long now until you leave your awful weather behind - it's good here at present, not to hot, not too cold.

  3. Dear Jayne
    I love the van - it is great to see some individuality now and again!
    Best wishes

    1. Thanks Ellie, a lovely change from the usual sea of brilliant white :-) Makes it pretty difficult if you want to be incognito though.

  4. When I saw the photo of the van I thought you were taking patchwork to a whole new level, then realised it wasn't Bill :-)

      PS: remember your lovely email about "half written replies" - your reply is STILL half written in my Drafts folder {whooops}

  5. They'll certainly know which van's theirs when they're stumbling home from the pub, no chance of getting that mixed up. Awww, that little starling enjoying the sunshine, we had a blackbird sitting with his wings spread out on our lawn, I think the birds enjoy the better weather just as much as we do.

    1. Thanks Jo. We also get blackbirds 'sunbathing' here. Apparently the ultraviolet light kills off little mites that get onto their feathers . . .

      Daisy used to close her eyes and tilt her head up towards the sun - that was definitely sun worshipping. 💚🐾
