      It is indeed. I’m always amazed by the sea kale, especially when it flowers.I have indeed been to the cottage, Dungeness is a wonderful place to visit as is nearby Rye Harbour nature reserve. Thanks, Hilary.

      I’ve just walked to Aldi in St Leonards and back home again – I wonder if I saw your mate shopping in there!

    For an artist this is a visual OD. Those rocks! Those wispy clouds! Those plants in that mud! And that last picture blows me away — an impressionist painter’s dream scene. ( Perhaps I should give up painting? I don’t seem to see straight anymore. 😉 )

      Thank you so much, Christine. I often see artists sitting on the beach at low tide. As you can tell from the drifting sand in the last picture, I nearly got literally blown away, it was so windy! And don’t you DARE give up painting!

        It’s shallow water and something you have to watch if the tide’s coming in because it deepens rapidly and can leave you stranded.

        Love the picture and left a comment there!

    I love the sea. High tide or low tide. Beautiful.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday, Keith. 🙂

    Such interesting erosion patterns! It’s funny, my WW this week is looking at eroded rock formations on the California coast.

      They do say, great minds think alike! Your WW could easily have been taken on my beach!

    Your low tide does not need many words:):) It looks like you edited your shots? I really miss the coastline here, since most of my life I’ve lived an hour or less away from it.

      I can’t imagine being landlocked again! I did very little editing, it really wasn’t necessary. Thanks so much, Emille.

        Looking forward to your next wordless (just to put the pressure on, haha), Emille

    Lovely photos. They make me want to explore the rock pools to see what has been brought in on the tide.
    What are the old wooden stakes in the 7th photo?

      The pools are alive with small crabs and little fish as well as mussels. The wooden stakes are the remains of an old breakwater. There are lots of complete ones along the beach and they resemble very high wooden walls which travel down into the water. Because the beach is in a bay the waves come ashore at an angle and the breakwaters are there to prevent the shingle from being shifted aside at high tide.
