The Day After High Tide

Hubby and I didn’t get to go for our walk today until this afternoon. It was cold and we wrapped up really well, but despite gloves, scarves, hats, and thick coats, we were still chilled to the bone by the time we got home.
We didn’t walk as far as we have done recently because we’ve overdone it a bit and Hubby is really suffering. We decided to do half the Kela route, walking up to the prom, then down the slope and along the back road.
We had to walk out onto the sand as last night’s tide had left a load of salt and foam on the pathway. The tide was out today, way beyond the posts, more or less where we were walking on New Year’s Day.

This is the town end where the NYD dippers went in, and these are the flats closer to us, one taken from that end of the beach on Jan 1st, the other walking back.

Anyway, we often walk along the path directly below the flats as seen here in 2018:
This was how it looked early this afternoon
This is not rainwater but sea water that has not been able to go back out with the tide because of the sand residues behind it.
And something else was missing too:
I took the above on Jan 4th. This was more or less the same spot today
Makes you think doesn’t it, the power of the tide and how much sand it can shift in 24 hours. Not to mention works of sand art like this have all been lost:

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.

    The sea and the tides are artists – glad you allowed me to appreciate the artistry through the photos!
