After what has seemed like weeks of rain, yesterday, we had a few hours of sunshine, so I went to the beach. It was warm enough to sit on the pebbles and watch the waves for a couple of hours, so pretty mild for mid-December.
In the photo, the sea looks much flatter than it was, every so often there would be some quite large waves which arrived with a crash.
And then, large clouds formed and the sunshine stopped. Time to return to the car and drive home.
