Trip out to the coast again with SUN

Hi folks,

Sorry to have been away for a while but we have had friends staying  having limited my time on the computer.

Anyway off to the coast we went on Friday for day out with Heather and Ken.

Hythe was our first port of call and to find the nice cafe on the high street for lunch which we have been to for a while. Guess what it was closed, so not getting fed up we found another further  just a few doors down the high street. Really nice scones, cakes and coffee was the order of the day.

Suitably refreshed I started to look around for some local wild life and found this little species on the beach.

Will have to ask, is it a pebble catcher? or wot. he he.

As it was hot we thought we might as well carry on along the coast towards Dungerness and the Nature reserve. not a lot of luck with the feathered variety of birds but got this one at close quarters.

I bet the poor owner had just cleaned his car as this chap left him a present.

Chris said she was going to put a Power Station image up on her return so here is my contribution.

Dungerness B

Loads of fishermen at Dungerness so instead of birds I turned my lens in there  direction.

First the cast...

I spent a while looking at then admiring the way they get that worm out in the sea.

The reflection off the sea was really nice.

Will carry on with our adventure which I will continue tomorrow.

bye bye, luv Mike XX
