Yachts, Shoreham Beach

During October, we had some lovely weather in Shoreham, which made it feel like a gradual change from summer into autumn. At the time, the COVID number had slumped and people felt more comfortable being away from home. As you can see, the Sun shone and lots of people took the opportunity to take theirContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Morning Walk, Shoreham Beach

How do you feel about mornings? When I was a student, there were mornings when I didn’t get up until almost lunchtime and being particularly self-aware, I didn’t think this was particularly strange. Then I joined the working world and waking at 6 o’clock for a commute to work. Then in later years, rising atContinue reading “Morning Walk, Shoreham Beach”

Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach

As you can see, the weather has changed on Shoreham Beach, where before it was calm and inviting, now it is much stormier, with quite powerful waves. In the 1970s, surfing and skateboarding were very popular and whever I came to the beach, I hoped to see young people carving up the waves – butContinue reading “Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach”

Shoreham Beach, West Sussex

Shoreham Beach is a pedestrian bridge away from Shoreham-by-Sea and I suspect during storms, parts of it get a bit closer. After a few glorious, almost July-like days, the weather has finally turned and begun to cool down. On this occasion, the tide was out, so I got to walk on sand for a change.Continue reading “Shoreham Beach, West Sussex”

Worthing Pier, West Sussex

It is strange how seasons change from the edges, the mornings and evenings are much cooler than they were mid-summer and obviously it gets darker much earlier. But as you can see, during the day it is still warm and might even be mistaken for a summer’s day. Piers were a Victorian fad, with seasideContinue reading “Worthing Pier, West Sussex”

Yachts, Shoreham Beach

After 6 months of staying at home, I have started exploring further afield. In this case, about 20 miles away – so not that far! I used to live in Shoreham-by-Sea 40 years ago and whenever I go back I am reminded of what it was like as a child. The church at the endContinue reading “Yachts, Shoreham Beach”

Shoreham Beach, West Sussex

In a change to my usual routine, this morning I drove to the beach, which is about half an hour from where I live. It was still quite cool, but the Sun was very bright, making it hard to take photos. As you can see, some people were in the water although it looked quiteContinue reading “Shoreham Beach, West Sussex”

Lightning, Batu Ferringhi

“Crash!”, it was the middle of the night and my bedroom ceiling was lit up as if it was day time. And when the thunder sounded, it shook you as lay there. My adult brain knew I was safe, but there is a difference between knowing something and feeling it. I used to live here,Continue reading “Lightning, Batu Ferringhi”

Morning Sun, West Sussex

How has your life changed in the last few months? One of the things I like about life now, are my early morning walks on the parkland near where I live. When I was working, my morning was dominated by my need to get to work – which was always some way away from whereContinue reading “Morning Sun, West Sussex”
