Mid-week Dip – in the SUN!

Something I will probably often repeat but we are SO lucky to live where we do. Yesterday we managed to coincide a few of us, a calm sea and even the sun came out to join us for a lovely, almost completely calm (once you were in) dip. The recent heavy weather has seen the usual transformation of the beach and the most beautiful swirls of tiny pebbles caught for a moment, resting until their next encounter with a lively sea. I would like to take photos from above and if I can ever master my tiny drone, this may be possible – who knows!
