Ferias 2021: our daily view of the beach, 3 September 2021

No views of the sea today. Why not, you ask. Well, thought you already had too much of a good thing. So today we’re concentrating on the main character of our beach, the cliffs. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-3.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 31 August 2021

On the whole it was a lovely day, with warm water and blue skies. Later though the clouds drew in leaving an overcast sunset that ended on a glorious note. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-31.html

Ferias 2021: Our daily view of the beach, 30 August 2021

Today was just … different. We headed for the beach just before noon on a lovely sunny day. There was no traffic at all on the walk to the beach, and ahead us was a clear blue sky.

The loneliest sunbather, 17 August 2021

At the weekend the beach was packed with people. Now, during the week, there is ample space. But whenever you go, there’s always ‘o solitario’, the chap who arrives by himself, finds a spot away from everyone else, and after a spell in the sun quietly leaves … alone. https://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/08/the-loneliest-sunbather-17-august-2021.html

It used to be that you could wander along the shoreline and pick up a collection of beautiful pebbles. Now, all that are left are tiny stones and the weathered fragments of shells. https://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/08/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-17.html
