Autumn beach





Autumn colours on the beach this afternoon.

Walked to where the kids gather and light fires. It’s a nice south facing spot.

And there are great views over to Dalmeny, Edinburgh and Leith.

Just wish they’d clear up afterwards.



Stone sharks

wpid-IMAG0778.jpgwpid-IMAG0777.jpgIn Wester Ross for the weekend.

We came across stone sculptures amongst the rocks and dunes.

Stone sharks, a turtle a starfish surfaced on the close cropped turf.

The kids wanted to make their own – on a smaller scale.

We scanned the sea – no basking sharks today. There were however great skuas, black throated divers and a lone black guillemot.

Above the dunes, by a burn, a flock of twite were busy diplaying drabness as an artform.
