Hello and a good morning from a very sunny and warm East coast! It is beautiful here today and the washing is out on the line.
We’ve had a lovely long walk this morning, walking along the prom and past the clubhouse, then went down on the beach to walk back. We’ve covered a distance of about two miles, and boy, do we feel it!
Three years ago, a lot of starfish were washed up on the shoreline, and we saw some today.
None of the sunstars like these, and most of the traditional starfish were dead, but we did find one alive and put it back in the water.

The gulls were everywhere, and the amount of razor fish shells was amazing.
The beach was more or less deserted, and it’s a long time since we actually walked along the shore. I picked up a few shells, but only one was intact, so we brought that one home and Hubby will varnish it when it’s dry.
As we got closer to home, there were a few dogs playing fetch and we were honoured when a border collie presented her toy to us to throw. They live on our estate and she is beautiful, and like Maggie, trained well off lead.
The walk has taken it out of us though so we are going to have a quiet afternoon not doing very much.
I didn’t have that good a night last night, getting very cold with my hands, arms, kegs and feet like ice. I cuddled a hot water bottle but could not get warm. Hubby took my temperature which was OK and an extra blanket. I eventually got to sleep around 1.30 I’d guess and was awake again at 5.
I woke up with a headache too, but was expecting that after my jab yesterday. Saying that though, I have no tenderness or bruising round the site, and don’t feel too bad.
Off to get lunch now, fish for me, and a cauliflower and broccoli cheese for Hubby.
The scales were kind this morning and I’ve officially lost a pound. Hurrah!!
