Sumner beach

Posted by
Linerberry (Herne Bay, United Kingdom) on 1 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

On Saturday I thought a stroll along the beach at sunset might be a nice thing to do even though it was cold with a bitter wind. I got down there just in time to catch the sun before it dropped behind the mountains. The sun was huge and so amazingly bright. I was suprised to see so many people on the beach. Families with dogs and kids running about. It was just such a lovely sight in the awesome light of the final glimse of the sun.

Tomorrow is Silly Tuesday and will be my last post as Silly Mama!
Silly Papa john4jack will take on the job until I return from my travels. Thank you all for being so wonderful. I will post when I can. I'll be away for 2 months visiting Mellofello, MrsAmber and Bro.

See you tomorrow!!! XXX

MrsAmber from London, United Kingdom

Well next Saturday - as I said to Bro only yesterday - you will be having a BBQ with us as the sun sets!! What a lot of travelling you will have to do in the meantime though.
The picture is lovely, of course...although it looks more like a river than a beach to me..I think the trees/bushes make it so (for me)..it looks like the Nile or the Ganges! But it is very early and I've just woken up! Take care! xxxxx

@MrsAmber: Oh and I can't wait to be there!!! The journey is sooo long but well worth it:-)
Its actually the start of the estuary and the trees are on the Brighton Spit on the other side.
Have a great day and see you for my last Silly Tuesday before I travel:-) XX

This was well worth the effort of putting up with the wind and cold - super shot! Not sure where you will be travelling in England, but if you ever get anywhere close to Norwich, please send my very best regards (my Dad was born there and I simply love the place).

@dobbino: Thank you Rob! I didn't know you were of English blood:-) I don't think I will be going near Norwich but If I do i will certainly send your regards:-)
