Today’s Pictures: 14 July 20

Looking down from one of our favourite paths through the Forest of Dean.

Everywhere in our wonderful world there are people who can’t get out and enjoy nature just now. Here, I’m trying to brighten the days for them by posting pictures of natural beauty.

Looking back to the mainland from the Worm’s Head in Rhoselli, Wales. Taken September 2019.

If you get pleasure from this, please share it as widely as you can, so others can enjoy it, too. Thank you.

      We had to take care, and take our time, knowing we’d set out in plenty of time to return before the tide turned, Lynette. And it was definitely worth the effort.

      Yes, Noelle. It was a very windy day. In the centre of the picture, right on the top of the hill, you can see a hut. That’s the Coast Guard station. As we passed, we looked in and one of the guys emerged. He explained that they were expecting gale force winds and suggested that we should be careful if we decided to climb the Head. He pointed out our best route across the causeway exposed by the low tide. It was a difficult walk, but we were determined to get to the Head itself. Once there, we found a woman lying flat on her belly on the cliff top, photographing seals basking below. I tried to get a few shots, but had to stay upright and the wind made the task almost impossible. W climbed to the top, but didn’t go right to the end of the Head, as that involved crossing a rock ‘bridge’ that was just too exposed.
      It was a bit of an adventure, but definitely worth the effort.
