Last Monday we took a walk along Merricks beach. The tide was out showing the seaweed and attracting gulls and wading birds. Kite surfers were riding the wind and waves. The long shadows showed the sculpting of wind on sand as it blew against grasses. On the return trip, we were heading into the setting sun and had beautiful silhouette effects.
This evening we headed to the beach to cool off. It was packed with holiday-makers who gradually dispersed as shadows lengthened. The fish and chip shop closed as they had run out of food, but luckily one of our number had a portable stove in the back of his car, so after dropping into the local supermarket for sausages and bread, dinner was organised.
