St Ives, Happy Dogs and A Robin

23 Feb

The tide was in when we arrived in St Ives, the sea being whipped into white horses.

St Ives – tide in

I loved the poetry pillars in Tate St Ives.

Poem in The Tate Gallery

We always love watching dogs playing on the beach. These two were racing about and I’m pleased that my photo caught their sandy splashes and their reflection.

Dogs dashing through the waves

By the time we had visited Tate St Ives and were on our way back to the train, the tide was well out.

St Ives – tide out

A very friendly Robin was sheltering from the bitter wind in the shelter on the platform as were many of those waiting for the train.

    Beautiful photographs. Thank you for sharing. You’ve brought some winter sunshine into a very cold day here in Wales.

    What gorgeous pictures, Sally, loved the poem – and the beautiful lettering, and the colours of the landscape and dogs reflections and St Ives – a feast for the eyes …

    The robins in Europe have so much more charm than those in North America.

      They are very sweet and almost tameable. I have a friend who gets them to come to her hand so that she can feed them! πŸ™‚

    What a beautiful bird! The robins here in the U.S. are very different.

    You reminded me of this poem:

    As I was Going to St. Ives

    As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with seven wives,
    Each wife had seven sacks,
    Each sack had seven cats,
    Each cat had seven kits:
    Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
    How many were there going to St. Ives?

    What a difference a tide makes! Good capture of the dogs too.
