Sea, Stoat and Sally-Boots

05 Feb

1   From our bedroom this morning, we could see that the sea on the North coast was very rough, white horses all along the horizon so we went down to Chapelporth to feel the wildness of the ocean and the wind, the roar of the waves crashing onto the rock and tried to take photos while being buffeted by the very fierce gusts.

2   On the way home I saw a beautiful creature running across a drive. I identified it when we arrived home and it was a stoat. No chance of a photo but I found this one on a BBC site.

3   I posted some Sally-Boots to a young friend who had her baby girl four weeks early a few days ago. Happily, she’s doing well.  As I was packing them up, I realised where the colour scheme had come from – the orchids that were part of Mr S’s birthday present.

    You have reminded me that we haven’t been to see the sea for a while – must plan a journey soon. Thanks for the reminder.

    Beautiful orchid. Have you had it long? Mine is blooming for the third year in a row. Fingers crossed for its long life. “From the cliff tops” — something about that photo intrigues me. The ‘slices’ of the sea seems like they might have a food connection, but i don’t know what. Love photos all round, as usual, Sally.

    Lovely pictures, the sea looks fantastic. I have seen some photos taken earlier today up in Scotland, it’s totally wild up there!

    I’d try and surf those waves!
    Goodness, those boots are pink.
    (And now I know waht a stoat is.)

      I thought you might! They were enormous and today there was no-one out surfing! Pink’s not my favourite colour but my young friend will love them!
      Now I know what a stoat is too! 🙂
