Empty Beach, Shoreham-by-Sea

Empty Beach, Shoreham Beach, West Sussex – May 2021

“I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and sky…”

Sorry, I thought I would start with a bit of John Masefield. 🙂

This photo is only a couple of weeks old, but the now weather has shifted from “sort-of-summer” to “definitely summer”. So it is long gone (although it isn’t).

When I lived here 40 years ago, I was always disappointed that the sea looked green rather than the blue you see in films. And I wished the shingle was sand. But now, I’m glad that it isn’t: the green is rather pleasing and the waves hiss when they strike the pebbles!

After weeks of wet weather, it feels like we have finally reached summer. I haven’t posted for a while because the footpaths have been too wet to be fun to walk on.

I took these photos at the same time of day, two days apart. This is a memorial tree – which I suspect is for some former students at the local school. It is in a farmer’s field, with a footpath, which I took these photos from.
