Us by the Sea in Photos

The weather is lovely today.

Come and have a walk with Doc and I.

Last time we took you along the coast, this time we’ll take you around another path.

Don’t worry, you will love it too.

Now let’s start our walk by the church.

But before we go through that gate, let’s stop and see if we can find some flowers.

Ah, there they are.

Lovely crocuses, aren’t they?

I love its purple colour, looking so vibrant among all that green.

Now let’s go through that gate and step into the graveyard.

Lovely blue sky, the bluest of blue.  Now if only the sky stayed that way, all would be lovely.

Little T loves it here.  She likes to wander around and inspect the different graves and likes to have a little poke around.

And through that gate, you’ll see the ocean.

And the wild expanse of headland which Doc loves.

Now you see why we call it doggie heaven.

And there’s the coast-guard’s hut, its white building against a shade of blue and brown.

See that bit of rock, I like to sit there and watch the sea when it’s calm like today, or even when it’s raging as if in torment, although the wind can be rough, sometimes it scares me, and I wonder if I’ll get blown away.

My first sighting of tourists, you always see them up there, especially in a lovely day like this one.

You’re lucky it’s low-tide and you can see the blow-hole in all its glory.  When the sea is mad, you can see the waves thrashing against the rocks and making a loud bellowing noise in and out that hole, like a dragon puffing out steam.

And there’s our little village nestled against the valley.

On this side, you can see the 15th century harbour wall, during peak season, you’ll see the tourists enjoying the sun in all its glory.

I’ve never seen that small truck in the water before, I’m not sure what it’s doing there.

The trees are slowly beginning to show some leaves.

Little T’s school is somewhere there.

And now we’ve come full circle.

And Doc is waiting for us by the church.

But before we end this walk, I have one more beautiful sight to show you.

Yes, the snowdrops are here.

Does it really mean that spring has sprung?

What do you think?



    These are such beautiful photos. Stunning scenery and remarkably good weather by the looks of things too!

    • Thank you! I know, the weather yesterday really felt like spring has really sprung 🙂

    oh wow this is amazing the sky is so so blue! I am mega jealous we have no sea anywhere near us it’s probably a minimum 2 plus hours drive for us too any sea! We do have lovely countryside i suppose though, your picture are beautiful by the way x

  6. Kate @ Did That Just Happen Blog

    You do live in such a picturesque spot – which is why I totally get when you need a “city” fix! 🙂 And I loved how you were all “huh, that truck is new” like it wasn’t a big deal!

    • While it is certainly beautiful around here, I absolutely NEED to have a “city fix” or else I’ll go absolute bonkers 😉 xx

  7. What stunning views and beautiful weather! We live hours away from the coast so it’s rare I get to see the sea.

    I lived this post! What a unique way of writing it; as if we are taking a walk with you. It almost felt like a guided meditation and I found it really relaxing. Your beautiful photos obviously helped.

  10. Amazing photos and such a lovely way to show an area that you go to frequently. You’re lucky to have such stunning scenery.

    • Thank you. When the sun is out, and everything looks lovely, yes, I am reminded about how lucky we are to live in a beautiful little village by the sea, even though sometimes I miss the chaos and madness of the city 😉 x

  11. I loved this! I felt like I was walking right with you and what gorgeous photos! The one where we first see the ocean is brilliant.

  12. The Reading Residence

    Such beautiful photos, you’re surrounding by stunning scenery. It all looks gorgeous and bracing up there on the cliffs. I do hope spring has sprung, I’ve been waiting for it x

  13. Cathy Glynn

    What a beautiful trip around the area you live, you are so lucky to be near the sea. Great photos x

  14. Thank you for taking us on your scenic walk with you, it felt like I was there with you. As I am blind I cannot see the pictures you have posted along side, but your detail within the text make me feel like I was able to see them 🙂 xxx

  15. Beautiful pictures! You live in the lovely place 🙂 It reminds me of a place my friends and I visited long ago, up north close to Scotland.. I forget the name of the place now, but this looks just like it!

    • Thank you. We live along the coast in North Cornwall 😉 We did a road-trip once from Cornwall all the way to Scotland. And you could see the changes in landscape and it was beautiful too! 🙂 x

  16. Ana De- Jesus

    The crocuses look gorgeous and so does the scenery. I wish the sky was as blue here!

    Such beautiful pictures, I am hoping spring is on its way as winter has been too cold for my liking.

  21. Snowdrops and beautiful blue skies. Dare we dream that a sunny spring is on it’s way? Beautiful photos and a lovely village 🙂
