A Walk on the White Side

Being Thursday and Market Day, I have taken to getting our stew veg there rather than the offerings from the local supermarkets.
It was snowing but pleasantly warm, and Hubby said now would be a good time to check out the beach and walk into town from there.
Maggie hadn’t had her morning walk yet and taking the car didn’t seem to be that good an idea so that’s what we did.
The flood gate is still closed so we had to go up the ramp and down the other side onto the sand. Maggie was not impressed, especially as it was not how she remembered it.
We’ve renamed it White Sands:

You can just make out the ‘point’ in the distance which is shown clearer below in one of the first pictures I took in that direction when we arrived.We decided to walk along the beach path into town rather than on the roads, but the wind was blowing in our faces and the snow with it, so we came off the promenade and followed one of the side roads instead. Maggie was off lead most of the time and the snow was still virgin beneath our feet so there were no mishaps.
We got our veg then went into the cafe for a cuppa before walking home. This time we kept to the roads, meeting up with several other walkers who told us that it snowed practically every year but never hung around for long.

There is something icy falling outside which could well be freezing rain.
The internet weather forecast proudly boasts intermittent showers for the next 64 minutes, and the radar picture has a rather fetching pattern of elongated green balloons along the East Coast.
But snow?
That’ll be a no again (or not).

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great post, good to see white sandy beaches at long last in the UK even if not the real thing 🙂

    • Here we are at 13.30hr and it’s all gone.
      Off to walk the dog now and see if the ducks are pond-bound.

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        We still have it here, but also we have some pretty determined snow clouds a mile away lingering on the coast line with a fog that Stephen King would be proud of 🙂

      • Are you sure it’s fog??????????

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        Yes, it is fog, when it’ starts to snow l can tell the difference now and as l look out onto the large expanses of the golf course, which is now ‘just’ starting to thaw, l can see pretty quickly if it was snow falling and laying 🙂

        The coast is less than a mile from me here, and the golf course edges into/onto the cliff tops, it’s pretty foggy white and not snowy white if that makes for sense?

      • We’ve got lovely sunshine, but there is a nip on the air.

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        We had that sunshine not long back oddly enough, it sadly didn’t stay for long, now it’s heavy fog grey clouding, most assuredly to the nip though, totally agree there 🙂

      • Thanks for sending the sun our way, even if it is only temporary!

      • aguycalledbloke says:

        Ha ha 🙂 Pleasure think nothing of it, by the way when you are finished with it … any chance you can send it back? 🙂
