This week on Tuesday Treasures, I’m winding back to the beginning of March, which seems like a very long time ago. We went for a walk along Littlehampton Beach just a few days before we both became ill with Covid 19.
It was a lovely sunny day although there was a wind blowing and the sea was a little rough. I have also taken some views through the bench – apparently it’s the longest bench in the world and it runs the length of the seafront and in a couple of places, the designers have snarled it all up to make it longer. Though it wasn’t the top of the tide, the River Arun was higher than usual because we’d had a lot of rain the previous week. And as you can see, they were still busy dredging the mouth of the river for the large gravel boats that work out of Littlehampton Harbour. Stay safe.
These are lovely. I wish I lived closer to the ocean and could take walks like this😁
Thank you, Tammy:)). I’m looking forward to getting sufficient energy to enjoy going down to the beach again!
Beautiful beach and I love the bench though it doesn’t look ideal for sitting! I’m always amazed by how rocky your beach pictures are. I grew up on the white sand beaches in the Gulf of Mexico and the rocky beaches look so much moodier. I love it!
Thank you, Katherine:). The noise of the stones rubbing on each other as the waves wash in and out is a sublime sound, as far as I’m concerned – but then I guess I’m biased. I haven’t been down there yet now for a whole month and I’m missing it horribly!
The bench might be a little weird in places, but the seafront is simply stunning!
Thanks for sharing these amazing pictures 🙂
Thank you, Maddalena! I hasten to add that the bench isn’t like that for most of the space – I’ll have to take a few more pics next time I go down there, so you can get a proper idea of how it works:)).
What a gorgeous day! That beach looks so different in the sunshine!
Thank you, Mogsy:). Yes, it’s one of the things I love about going down to the beach – with changing light levels and the tide, it’s always so different.
That bench is so cool! It must be nice to be close to a beach. I haven’t been to a beach in a long time. Cool pictures!
Yes, we’re very lucky to live so close to the coast and I’m hoping to get back there for a walk. I haven’t been to the beach since the beginning of March.
Yes, everyone needs to stay safe! Love the sparkling sun on the waves. 🙂
It was a lovely day – and the last time we’d been to the beach before this morning…
