Regular visitors to my blog will remember that a few weeks ago I went to the seaside and drew you a picture of it. No-one was incredibly impressed.
Let's make up for it today.
The tide goes out an awful long way around here, and leaves you with mudflats. Mudflats are a fantastic habitat for birds.
Perhaps the birds are camera shy.
We do, however, also have beaches of wonderful golden sand. This could be something to do with the fact that the sand was imported from somewhere else.
But can you see anyone here who cares?
This was a magical weekend, because it brought with it a visit from a friend. A very, very lovely friend I haven't seen for far too long.
And as an added bonus, this friend brought us biscuits. So, though blogging has its charms, it is not calling to me half as loudly as that wine glass, those biscuits, and those cushions.
I'm on my way...
