Although it was so cold and frosty yesterday.. i decided to go for a walk on the beach and take some photos of the frost…….

The seagulls and birds dont seem to mind the cold water….rather them than me.

I found loads of these sponge like things on the beach…

The beach was almost deserted….

and the sun did try to shine.

TO try and melt the frosted rocks

All standing in a line.

Then up the beach top I climbed to see a different view.

The frosted mounds of silver grass gave me a different view.

The Tamarisk stands so alone catching the winter view.

A lonely boat sleeps waiting for the Spring.

I waved goodbye to the Diddlers… as i heard them softly sing.

And headed for home for tomorrow they say a warmer wind it will bring.

Fantastic photos.
I especially like the picture of the wet stones, but all the photos do a great job of illustrating your outing.
Thanks for letting me share your walk. :o)

Great blog. I lived within half a mile of the coast for many years but rarely visited it once the children had grown up. Winter was definitely the best time, dogs could be walked and it was often deserted. Thanks for the memories.

And what, pray, are Diddlers?

Thanks for this Holly very brave , we often stroll along our coast in winter months as tourists long gone although some days can fully understand why .

My only experience of Sussex was Brighton beach so nice to see you have sand.Love the little Diddlers.My guess would be Sanderling,Wagger but not a bird familiar with.

The sponge like things are the eggs of whelks.

Hi Glad you all enjoyed the walk with me...... thanks for letting me know what the spongey things are...... i had no idea.... the little birds i call the Diddlers... is my name for them, not sure what real name is... they are great to watch as they go back and forth with the tide as it goes in and out looking for food... they all run together as the sea gets near... looks quite funny... ive always called them the Diddlers since i moved down here 8 years ago.......I live just outside Bognor Regis....West Sussex......
