Forces of Nature

All my posts today have been prompts, so here is an original and update on recent events.
The good news is that following rain in the night, most of the snow has gone and temperatures are now a sensible 4º with a real feel of zero.
Hubby and I have just come back from an evening walk which has been exceedingly pleasant without getting chilled or wet.
This is our second long walk of the day as this afternoon I took the camera and we walked up to the beach.
Ah.

The landscape is somewhat different and no longer flat as we have mini sand ‘cliff’ sculptures, sand dunes, and the flood defences are now sand banks.
This is of course the sand we still have on the beach, as driving into Skeggy earlier today to stock up my meat drawer in the freezer, an awful lot of it has been dumped on roads, gardens, driveways, conservatory roofs and patios.

What looked like clay or dark sand is actually water foam mixed with salt and sand giving an effect of frothy chocolate (Aero eat your heart out), and Maggie was pleased to show us a piece of driftwood by some intriguing blue object that held her attention.
It was actually interesting to see how the sand had been banked up on one side of the beach but not the other.  Bearing in mind we should have a significant drop from the prom to the beach on both sides, it makes you realise the power of the sea and wind.

Coming back through the park, ducks were standing on the frozen pond, and a lone Canada goose had his own ice island. The ice here was about an inch thick.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
