Seaside Sunday – After Storms

Living by the seaside isn’t always so nice. Sometimes we get Sea storms and it gets very windy and too dangerous to go to the beach. The storms always pass and leave a sort of peace behind, but they leave other stuff behind too.

‘All you stones are in the wrong place. Get back to the beach where you belong!’

ssstump

A strange smelling tree stump. Later a beachcomber will probably come and get this and sell it to someone.

ssporpoise

Poor little porpoise got bashed about and washed up. It was long dead by the time we found him, but we felt sad. He should be in the water. He’s the biggest we have seen wash up so far.

All calm again now. Let’s hope it stays that way for a while. 

Beach barking

I hope you has not beed worrying about where I be. We beed all over the place, walking and to agility shows and gardening and stuff like that and just enjoying the nice early summer. Mum said she just lost her blogging mojo for a bit there. I think it cos our camera not working and although Mum takes lots of photos on her phone it hard(er) work to put them on the computer for blogging.

To get me back to it, here some piccures of us on our beach. It be lovely weather here for a long time so we is going lots. Mum be learning to ‘run’ since she decided to enter a charity 5k and Mum does not do ‘running’ so we doing running on the beach (3 times so far). TND going to do it with Mum although he has run an actual marathon before so he pretty good at running. Mum can go about 3k at the moment and there about 4 weeks to go.

Mean old sea

These past few weeks we has had some storms in the UK. We has not had any bad flooding like other places so we is very lucky really. We did get some very bad winds up to 85 mph and me and Arran did not like it at all and Arran refused to do his poos outside and started doing them inside but he has mostly gotten over that now. We also had something called a ‘spring high tide’ and the sea has beed pretty mean to us and we lost some of our coastline what makes us ‘Seaside Shelties’.

Mum tooked a little video of the high tide.

Can you see the big hole in the corner of my piccures, just where the prom ends? It has been fenced off now. It at least as deep as Mum.

The high tide pushed all the stones about so we didn’t has any sand for a while and it left behind lots of rubbish.

Some of the villagers organised a beach clean up. I did not help cos I does not has hands.

The sea chomped away parts of the cliffs… We usually do a walk starting over at that building (the beach shop) and all the way along the cliff tops to the other side of the beach. Only, it beed closed off at both ends now, we not sure if or when it will come back. Mum says ‘they’ will has to move the path in, since it vanished into the sea and that depends on if the golf course lets them.

Horrid old sea! It really a lot of fun to dash along the coastal path up and down and scare Mum by going really close to the edge and of course I has never tried to push Arran off the edge, oh no. Plus we always take our favourite photos up there. We walked along the bottom to do assessings of the damage.

Not too bad…DSC_0004

oh oh, if you makes this bigger you might see the fence posts trailing in the air. They used to be a couple of feets back.DSC_0009

Some wild bunnies lived in this bit. We always encountered tourist dogs who had abandoned their people in order to chase them. Mum got worried for them. All that grass and mud used to be up the top.DSC_0010

Yoohoo, anyone alive in there?DSC_0011 DSC_0012

 

Arran did not be the least bit bothered. Whilst me and Mum inspected he ran off to say hello to some cocker spaniels and decided to take his own merry little Scamp way back. Mum put him back on his lead for a little while. He becoming a real teenager and arguing with Mum, which of course, I did not/do not ever do. Except for when she not paying me attentions or doing training things right.

He did find something cool, but Mum said we could not keep it.DSC_0013

Mum says we must just think like Annie.DSC_0014

 

I does not know who that be so I will just keep on thinking like Ludo. So long as we has nice places to walk and good treats to eat and I can smother my peoples with love, the sun’ll come out tomorrow!

Hi Mum!

Right Mum?!
