My Sunday Photo – Week 26.

IMG_5115My lovely in-laws paid us a visit yesterday so we spent the day at the beach.

While they enjoyed spending time with Freya, I bonded with my camera – having more fun with the terns, a very inquisitive seal, a possible marsh harrier and some blobs (see below).

When we arrived I could just about make out a big block of white on the horizon and assumed it was a huge container ship. Mark joked that it looked like a galleon in full sail and, as it got closer, it became clear that it was indeed something special. Just imagine beingΒ among the crew.


However, if I had to sum up the day I’d say it was all about the “nearly shots” where I was just a bit too far away or it was a little bit blurry. Still, all good fun and a brilliant way to de-stress.

Just think if this was in focus!
This is apparently a sea gooseberry (and not a jelly fish as we first thought).

PS If you are a more regular reader wondering whether I have given up normal blogging, I haven’t, I’ve just been busy with freelancing and also creative writing (yay to both). I will be back.

Have a lovely week.

    1. I think it’s just because it was so far away, it looks a bit zoomy (I’m sure that’s a technical term) rather than a natural shot πŸ™‚


  1. I love the galleon shots, how amazing to see something like that. I don’t think I’ve seen a sea gooseberry before, although if I had I probably would have thought it was a jellyfish.


    1. We hadn’t either. I asked a dog walker and she thought they were jellies but good old Google came to the rescue. So many of them washed up, it was a bit sad.


  2. Oh this is amazing, what a sight to see! I love all your photos, it sounds like you all had fun. And how exciting for you with the freelance and creative writing!


    1. Thanks, Jenni πŸ™‚ I do miss blogging but I only have so many words available in my little brain so something has to give at the mo πŸ™‚


  3. fantastic photos. I love the seagull one and of course the ship is wonderful.
    There’s a “pirate ship” that stays in the harbour by us but we’ve never seen it sailing.


  4. Oh wow that ship looks amazing, I bet you couldn’t believe it! It didn’t even know that sea gooseberries existed – I’m off to google them now! Great pictures xx


  5. Hi! I am sorry to have been so AWOL – i got slightly bogged down in wedding stuff and every time I’ve been online I have been pinteresting…it was definitely time for a break and the perfect cure for ‘why is there so much Tulle in the world!!” was seeing lovely Freya’s smiling face and reading about all your recent adventures! I have to say you are the kind of mum I would hope to be, Freya is always off learning something and experiencing something, she is one lucky little girl! I hope that all is well with you and I look forward to maybe seeing some of the creative writing you mentioned you’d been doing!! lots of love and apologies for my uselessness, xxxxx


    1. Yay! There you are. I have been wondering how you are getting on. I thought you’d turn your blog into a wedding planner (which I would love, btw) πŸ™‚ Thanks for your kind comments. She does just sit at home and watch Beauty and the Beast some days but usually I aim for a bit of adventure πŸ™‚ I hope to catch up with you again soon.


      1. I’m sure there will be wedding stuff and pleas for advice and help! Any green tips would be lovely!! I’m writing a post at the moment to catch everyone up!

        Beauty and the Beast was one of my faves – a great message too about not judging someone based on appearance, I approve!

        Take care xx
