A Lovely Day

The Atlantic breaks against the Isle.
The Lighthouse stands tall.
 What a warm and lovely day. 
Great day for a walk with my camera while doing a little beachcombing.


I sat on the rocks for sometime just watching the Atlantic roll in.
The birds and the seals are always entertaining.

I thought of many things far away.

The Sunset was lovely.

The water is hypnotic.


Low in the sky, going asleep into the Sea.

Allumium Buoy
you don't find many of these!

You see what you want to see.

Skin of a Lumpsucker
I saw 3 hooded Crows picking at something on the beach,
 I walked over and found what was left of this dinosaur of a fish.

A heart can only break if it still has love.


 End of a Lovely Day.
Good Night. x
