Poem and #PictureOfTheDay: 02/Feb/22

Gentle waves wash at
chalk scattered sands that lie
beneath birthing cliffs

Some of my pictures appear in the Gallery.
But, if you want images to decorate your home or office, use in calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or anything else you fancy in print or online, you will find more here.

    1. The headland at the end of the cliff is called Flamborough Head, Noelle. And the other side is a great seabird colony. It’s a fascinating place to walk. Mind you, the North Sea is usually pretty chilly!

        1. I know how cool it can be, Noelle. From the age of 5 to 7 I lived about 15 miles south of this spot, in an old railway carriage, still on its wheels, about 5 feet from the cliff edge. I used to walk to school along the beach, never wore shoes for those two years. I couldn’t swim at the time, but paddled, of course. And a lady of 70+ used to visit the place daily and swim in the sea, no matter what the weather or temperature!
          I had a love of wild weather, even as a child, and used to stand right on the edge of the cliff in thunder storms so I could watch the lightning out on the horizon and enjoy the waves breaking against the cliff 30 feet below. For some odd reason, my mum used to call me inside!

            1. Oh, it was cosy enough with 2 adults and 3 kids. The whole place was kept toasty with a paraffin hurricane lamp! Mind you, initially, we were obliged to get washed under a hand pump outside! Coooold! Later on, a tin bath was hung on the back of the carriage and brought inside to be filled with kettles of water heated on the gas stove!

                1. It was one of the happiest times of a happy childhood, Noelle. We were sad to leave that unusual home, but compensated for by the fact we then went to a house where we had proper bedrooms!
