Some pictures

I have stayed close to my home for this week’s Wordless Wednesday.  I took these pictures on Pevensey Marsh on the East Sussex coast which separates my seaside town from the one to the west.   

It’s a large salt wetland and grazing pasture which once formed the seabed.  In 1066 William the Conqueror sailed over it during the Norman invasion.  As kids, we used to dig into the soil to find seashells. 

They depict some of the numerous man-made channels (known as dykes) that crisscross the marsh intending to prevent the area from flooding, though not always successfully!

    Looks beautiful and peaceful. I wondered if there would be any waterbird pictures. I like the one with the closeup reeds in the foreground. If the sun ever shines again here I may go out and snap some pics.

    A lovely countryside to day dream. 🙂 Once the pandemic is over I hope to go grab sunshine like this.

    The world is healing, so are we.

    Stay safe, Keith.
