The apparel of the people in today’s photographs demonstrates that, although dry,  the day was once more cold and dismal.

Those walking along Mudeford quay or on the spit were well wrapped up.

We have never seen the water so low at this spot, where the burnt sienna of the exposed sandbank blended with the indigos of the Isle of Wight and The Needles.

It was Jackie who realised the purpose of the red and green buoys was to guide seafarers like these jet skiers, who obligingly arrived to prove her point, round the sandbank.

Gull with crab

A gull made off with a crab.

Not far from the quay is Avon Beach, where, again, those who had ventured onto the sands were swathed in warm clothing.

Crow

A menacing crow lurched awkwardly across the sand.

This evening we dined on a pepperoni pizza topped with additional cheese and tomato, accompanied by salad, with which I drank more of the merlot.

  1. very very very cool crow photo, one of those, wish I had done that ❤ ❤ superb and playful, although those birds do disturb me a bit….never trust them and always keep an eye on their antics ❤

  2. It seems a lot of people were about on the beach, even with the chill. The gull with the crab is a great capture, and I also like the crow. I wonder if he was checking out goodies left on the beach.

  3. Looks like a nice day. We have a crow or raven in our yard here in the US, and he has only one foot, so we call him Pegleg. He hops about a little more than the others do, but does well enough.

  4. Our weather has pretty much been the same as yours the past four days – Siddy has had to wear his rain coat which he hates and it takes me an age to get all my layers on ready to walk in the rain and the wind! But still there have been many moments when I’ve thought I should have my (phone) camera with me….

  5. An excellent photo of the seagull. It looks like a good time to dig for clams. I don’t see any buckets and shovels. Is this not a good spot?

  6. It definitely looked more wintery than you would expect going into May. Hopefully, the weather will pick up soon – supposedly 21 degrees next weekend.
