Tuesday Treasures – 36 #Brainfluffbookblog


This week on Tuesday Treasures, I am featuring our first walk along Littlehampton beach for a very long time. Despite deciding it would be a good idea to get out in the fresh air well over a month ago, after Oscar left we were beset by weeks of thunderstorms and sudden downpours and given I don’t move very fast, I would have been drenched. And then I became ill again. So now I’m once again recovering, yesterday we ventured out – and though it was blowing a hoolie, it was wonderful to get down to the beach again. I was interested to see all the young gulls feeding down on the sand together. During the day, the nest next door is now quiet, so this must be where they spend their time. The plants are from the borders lining Pier Road, which look fabulous at this time of the year.

  1. It’s relaxing just looking at these photos, because we’re in the middle of a heat wave here and it’s just too hot for me. I love the gull photos😁

    • Ah – I’m glad you find them relaxing:)). It’s been lovely being able to go out, again. And the gulls are amazing birds – noisy, messy and very aggressive, but they are also highly sociable and wonderful parents…

  2. Oh, what delightful photos! You and Himself are looking fit and fine, girlfriend, and the scenery you walked through! Oh my! It looks as if even the weather is cooperating.

  3. What a beautiful walk and what beautiful flowers! I think a nice quiet walk sounds wonderful. It’s about 100 degrees here with 90% humidity so I’m staying in for the foreseeable future but when it cools down I’d love to make walking a regular thing in my daily routine.

    • Oh my goodness – what terrible conditions! I’ll admit to feeling a tad grumpy that our summer so far has been so cool and wet. Our average temperatures are in the mid to high 60s, with LOTS of rain, over the last few weeks. But I’m not remotely inclined to want to swap with you! I hope things cool off and the humidity eases down very, very soon…

    • I know them as red-hot pokers, but I think they are also known as torch lilies. They are lovely, aren’t they? And tough! They have to be, because they are subjected to salt spray, high winds and lots of dog wee…

    • Sadly, I’ve been really ill again. Just after that Tuesday, I ended up bed-ridden, too exhausted for anything and today have only just begun to surface. It’s been grim and frightening to think that I can be laid so low this amount of time after having had Covid, when I thought I was really on the road to recovery.

      • Thank you, Lynn. I think I’ve now – finally – unearth enough information to put in place a proper recovery plan. But it’s taken a while – and I don’t think I’m going to be back on my feet anytime soon… But at least I now firmly believe that I will get better!

  4. Oh how lovely to see the smiles on your faces! A little sun and fresh air really does make a difference, doesn’t it? And it’s so fun watching littles find their way and grow. We’ve not been able to do much wildlife-watching here, but any time with Nature is always a blessing. xxxxxxxx
