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:
