Tuesday Treasures – 11 #Brainfluffbookblog #LightintheLockdown

Standard


This week on Tuesday Treasures, I am featuring the pics I took on our walk along Littlehampton beach on Sunday morning. And this time around, the tide was in. Some of the photos were taken on the small pier at the mouth of the River Arun – we were lucky with the sunshine, after a rainy, stormy week. And evidence of the storms is the seaweed strewn across the beach.

This teak groyn was flung up onto the beach in the last storm – and it’s HEAVY

    • It was the loveliest day and our beach isn’t as pretty as some – but the EU spent a lot of money on our area, after it had taken a bit hit in the 70s depression. So it now looks a lot spiffier and attracts a lot more tourists.

    • Oh, it’s working alright. Littlehampton is a commercial port that processes gravel and large dredgers navigate their way up the Arun regularly when the tide permits. And the river also has the 2nd fastest current on the south coast with a tidal range of some 17 ft at springs, so fishing boats and leisure need to keep clear if they aren’t thinking of entering the Arun – or carefully pick their time at slack water when they are. I used to know the actual signal for the Littlehampton lighthouse off by heart – back in the day when I sailed:)).

    • It is great fun, isn’t it? It’s unusual not to see a bunch of children climbing all over it – and folks have an opportunity to have one of the wooden slats replaced by one with an inscribed memory of a loved one, which I think is a lovely idea…

  1. Looks like you had some nice weather with some rare sun. You took some great pictures! I especially like that close up off the waves. It’s been a while since I’ve been to the sea.
