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”

Dog on the Beach, West Sussex

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 itContinue reading “Dog on the Beach, West Sussex”

Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach

I was going to write about life on the beach – but then I noticed the date – and decided that I would write about Thanksgiving instead. In the UK we tend to slowly take on things from the US – liablity lawyers, Adam Sandler – all the good stuff. But I do think weContinue reading “Thanksgiving, Shoreham Beach”

Kite Surfers, Shoreham Beach

Although the morning started with glorious blue skies, by the time I got the beach it was clouding over. Looking along the beach towards Worthing, there were menacing rain clouds and a steady breeze. And there were also lots of kite surfers out, racing back and forth on the waves. I think I was onContinue reading “Kite Surfers, 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”

More from Shoreham Beach

I keep coming back to Shoreham Beach. I suspect, it is because haven’t been to the seaside in such a long time. Or it could be because I like drinking warm coffee while I get blasted by on shore gales. I don’t know. While I was taking these, another photographer was doing things properly withContinue reading “More from 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”
