Seals in Harlyn Bay - January - 2012

212 photo's taken on Thursday, this is the best photo from the day.

Or maybe this one ?  Waves crashing onto the beach in the next bay.

 It was taken from this spot, looking towards the next village along the coast. There must be a knack to taking long shots with our new camera.  Keeping the camera still would probably help. But from this distance I could hardly see the next bay unless I looked through the camera lens anyway. It was a case of hit or miss photography on Thursday.

A slight detour from our usual beach walking route, found us on the Atlantic side of  Cornwall.
Cornish lanes in August are busy but wonderfully empty in January.

An almost empty beach too. The sun was shining, Freya danced around in circles on the sand, it could have been the height of Summer. In reality is was a chilling 2 deg c.

It looks calm enough from here.

If you could find shelter from the wind it wasn't that bad. Freya managed to find another  rock pool she misjudged and had to swim through.

Surfers weren't ' the only ones to enjoy themselves.

Seals were playing among the waves. (Photo of seals along the British Coast)
Try as I might, the seals eluded me. 212 camera clicks and no seals photo's of my own to show you.

Tried hard, failed miserably. As they say, you can't win them all.

We had a great day out, 

but, it was good to get home and dry off properly.

Cold weather and the possibility of snow heading our way, we might have to put beach walks on hold for a few days Freya.
As always you are very welcome to visit Freya and her rock pooling adventures over at The Catflap Cavalier,

Lots of love to "Ploy", our post crossing friend :-) x x x

We all thought you did great with your photos. The waves are quite impressive. Snow??? What is that? Been so long for us that we have forgotten what it is like to get snow.

These are brilliant pics!! Especially gorgeous Freya's ones! Aww the seals are just shy maybe! LOL!

I can't believe the weather is about to turn into winter!

Take care

Those are great shots, but they do make me feel cold. Glad you stayed dry even if the pup didn't.

We'd like to have some snow, but none in the forecast.

You captured some big waves, and we could hear those pounding waves as they crashed. Your photos are awsome!
