A walk around Alnmouth Estuary

About this walk

This is one of my favourite walks as it covers the estuary, beach, and hills bordering the coast.

I often do this walk at around 6am from March onwards. 639 more words

Good night, Pelican

If this sounds like a good title of a children’s book, you think like I do. I would like to write a sequel to “Goodnight Moon,” and use my photos of pelicans getting ready to say “good night.” 63 more words

When they turn and go with the flow they glide effortlessly downstream. 107 more words
