I trust my readers in the Philippines and the East Coast of America will forgive Jackie and me for choosing to visit the coast on a morning beset by winds of a mere 40 m.p.h.

Palms swayed in the wind at Milford on Sea; granite skies glowered over choppy waves; the Isle of Wight, The Needles, and the lighthouse were lent a translucent quality by the feeble, filtered, daylight and the misty sea-spray crashing on the rocks.

An unperturbed young lady ran along the coastal paths at a respectable rate;

four hardy sailors clung to stays on one side of a red-sailed yacht in efforts to keep the mast upright as it skirted the Isle of Wight, The Needles, and the lighthouse.

I think this was an egret fishing at Keyhaven,

while a preening gull perched on a heap of seaweed.

Two gentlemen passed stacks of colourful boats in the sailing club yard.

Readers are invited to suggest speech bubbles for these two.

In the field opposite Solent Grange stands a large haystack that defied the wind.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s luscious beef pie; creamy mashed potato; and crunchy carrots, cauliflower and cabbage. The Culinary Queen drank Hoegaarden; Elizabeth, Patrick Chodot’s Fleurie 2016, and I finished the same producer’s Brouilly.

  1. Are they supposed to look like faces, or is it just me? Caption: I told you the gates didn’t open till noon, but you insisted we come two hours early.”

    The photos of the waves are wonderful! There’s something hypnotic to me about watching the ocean–though you’re right, now in a hurricane or typhoon. I think of palm trees in tropical or semi-tropical areas.

  2. A blustery day, for sure. Brave jogger. The yachtsmen must have been out on toestraps, Good for the stomach muscles. As for the boards:
    ‘Hear that? He said we had funny faces!’
    ‘Yeh, and HE should talk!’

  3. I will go by thecontentedcrafter’s melody. Initially though, I’d thought of something like,

    1: This is our chance to get shot and featured on Mr Knight’s daily blog!

    2: If only we could manage to shake it up louder than the howling wind and surf. But look, here they come!

  4. Those twin-boat-faces are cute! But they look angry! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    First one says, “Why are you yelling at me?”
    The other one says, “I’m not yelling at you!”
    First one says, “Oh! Okay! We’ve good!” ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh, buoy! Maybe they are feeling pier pressure and it’s aboat time they seas the day! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜›

    Beautiful photos, Derrick!
    HUGS to all!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The photos show the strength of the winds.. we had a few trees not far away in our area fall, but we were fine apart from a few shrubs and plants in pots that blew over..
    As for the Speech bubbles.. The haystacks..
