It is hard to believe that we are in the middle of March; this afternoon we had temperatures of 15 ºC (59 ºF), the usual temperature for March being around 10 ºC (50 ºF). Where better to enjoy this unexpected sunshine than at the beach?
We are fortunate to live close to many lovely beaches. Today we went to Instow, a place we rarely visit because it is almost impossible to get close to in the summer. Although the lovely day had encouraged lots of local people to head for the beaches, the holiday season isn't here yet and we managed to find a parking space and we even got a window table at the Boathouse for a superb lunch of locally caught fish.
I showed some pictures of Appledore, which is on the other side of the bay, in this post. It is a prettier village with lots of galleries and eating places but it has no beach. All the sand is on the Instow side of the water.
The sea and sky were as blue as on a summer's day.
There really wasn't anything more to photograph but a few shells.....
.... and this rather nice willow sculpture.
