Bridlington North Side

Symphony Ginger Beast

An enjoyable walk along the beach on Bridlington North Side this morning, with blue skies and frost lingering on the sand. What could be nicer? Tell me how lucky we are to enjoy this, virtually on our doorstep!

St. Stephens Day Sun Rise

Being back in Rugby for Christmas, it has been good to revisit St Andrews Fields on Ashlawn Road (our old dog walk area) with Symphony and to meet some old friends. I have missed the great sunrise / sunset opportunities here and this morning was no exception. Tomorrow we will be leaving England to cross the border into Yorkshire and back home to Bempton!

Sunrise and Sunset at St Andrews Fields, Rugby

Symphony and myself are back in Rugby due to the very sad circumstances of my fathers death. This morning we had some quiet reflection on St Andrews Fields watching the sun rise on a cold, frosty and misty morning. Likewise, in the evening, we were able to observe the sun set and of course, it would have been rude not to capture the events.

These images are dedicated to my father, Gordon Groocock, MBE.

Sewerby Hall Grounds

Good Girls!

As the weather was good, we decided to have a walk around the grounds of Sewerby Hall where I hoped to manage a few late Autumn images. Symphony enjoyed the new "smells" and did her best to catch the many squirrels, handicapped by being on her lead!

Winter Rookery

Fungi (although I thought rather staid!)

With fairy steps?

Oh Deer!

Bridlington Bay

Who could possibly live here?

Bridlington Harbour

Today is market day in Bridlington and between setting up our greetings card stall, Symphony is taken for several "around the harbour" walks. Arriving before first light and at high tide also provides interesting photographic opportunities, which I am happy to take! It also allows for experimentation with "arty farty" shots!

This is my "arty farty" image!

As the sun rises!

With the tide being high, wading birds seek refuge on the sea walls, including these Purple Sandpipers.
