January 11th - Back to Bigbury Bay.

The sun was shining, the birds singing, the start of a clear blue sky January day, too good to stay inside.

There has been a full moon over the last few nights, which meant today the tide was out further than we normally see it around Bigbury Bay.

More sand and space for Freya to dig and run around on.
Making sure she digs around in the seaweed first of course.

Look for crabs in rock pools.

We're still not sure how we spent 6 hours on the beach, especially in January, but we had a good time.
Who says January is dull ?

 It's Karina's birthday tomorrow, the 12th January. Have a very Happy Birthday babes........
 Karina like Frank has matured a little since this photo was taken, but it's one of my favourite photo's of both of them.  I think I might live to regret putting matured....... she wouldn't thank me for telling everyone she is 35 years old tomorrow.

We left Frank to guard the cottage this morning, washing his paws as we went out of the door.........

Franks a mouse magnet, not quite a beach and sand between his toes kind of guy anyway.

If you never got to the beach today, don't worry, I promise, it is still there.

As usual you can find Freya Rose Blossom at  Catflap Cavalier....if you want to toddle on over for a visit.

Happy Birthday, Karina! DD 2 will be 31 on the 13th.

I would have loved to walk on the beach with you today. We have snow and 4 degree F wind chill. A good day to wrap up and read--which I did.

I shouldn't complain. It has been a nice January so far. I'm ready for Spring already.

Happy birthday Karina! What a lovely day it looks like you had. Pretty mild here too, but wet. Tomorrow should be sunny and dry. Can't wait to get out in it! xxx

What a beautiful photos of her and such beautiful eyes.
I wish I could walk on the beach or it would snow so I could cc ski, just cold or raining lately. I have been enjoying the moon and the night sky, so clear and pretty in the winter.

Happy Birthday to Karina - we hope she has a wonderful year ahead!

How we wish we could be near the seaside. And you are right, who would think you would be at the beach in January? Mother Nature is very confused lately.

A very Happy Birthday to Karina. We've had fairly good weather here too. It looks almost like yours - almost.

Happy birthday to Karina - of course, you were a child when you had her, right? Beach looks wonderful, I love the seaside in the winter.

Happy Birthday Karina. Elizabeth will be 35 in August where have the years gone?

I like winter beaches.

Allie said...

Looks like a lovely day - not too cold, and sunny! You'll have to let me know what that's like. *G* Grey here.

Happy happy happy birthday to Karina!!! And hugs and kisses to Freya and Frank!

I envy you living so close to the sea, looks like you had it all to yourselves; what beautiful pics!
Happy birthday to Karina.

Sue said...

Never know what treasures you might find in a pile of seaweed. It's cold and snowy here today. I can only wish I was on a beach. I'm doing the Frank thing today and staying inside.

There is no walking on the beach here. No, to much wind, rain and hail for that. Happy birthday to Karina, no one told me that she is 35.
Some good news, we have found a home for one of the pups in Holland. It will be a few weeks before he goes. He needs an escort to see him there safely. Love to all, Judith x
