Welcome back to Sunday Selections!
This once-a- week-meme was originally begun by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock, as a way to showcase some of the many photos we all take, but don't get around to showing on our blogs.
The rules are very simple:-
1. post photos of your choice, old or new, under the Sunday Selections title
2. link back to me, River, somewhere in your post
3. leave me a comment so that I know you've joined in and can come over and see what you've posted.
4. hop on over toElephant’s Child to see more of her wonderful photos.
Andrew often joins in too.
I usually go with a theme for my Sunday Selections and this week, surprise, surprise, we're at the beach.
it was a glorious autumn day and I had nothing else to do so I went to see the sea
how blue is that water!
there was one sailboat
one just cruising around
and a paddleboarder
getting a good upper body work out
making quite speedy progress too.
there were a few clouds
but not too many
sitting in a grassy park with houses on three sides,
and palm trees
and an **Exeloo, nicely disguised.
Looking at the view, before starting my walk along the sand:
sun, sea, grass and trees;
what more could a person want?
there was a man set up with table, chair and umbrella, having a picnic lunch perhaps.
And he wasn't the only one:
Ironman was there too;
fish and chips on his lap,
thongs on his feet,
cap on his head and a scarf around his neck in case the breeze should turn cold.
walking along the sand, I noticed a construction site up on the esplanade, so up I went to have a closer look.
and saw this. I looked it up when I got home, on one of the real estate sites I frequent and discovered the ground floor is two homes, side by side while the top floor is one home. I don't remember about the middle floor. It might be a second story to the bottom homes, or the lower floor of the top home. I should have taken more notice. All of them are already sold anyway.
**Most of the ones I see are left in their original stainless steel state, not at all pretty to look at.
