Coastguard Cottages and the Seven Sisters

July 25, 2016

With the farm behind me and to the left, I gazed east across the roofs of Coastguard Cottages towards the Seven Sisters and Belle Tout lighthouse. The cottages and the lighthouse are now luxury holiday dwellings and I'd certainly like to have a look inside!

May 31, 2016

Houses and flats for homes; the harbour for watery refuge; wooden groynes to hold the beach in place; Martello Tower no 66 to remind us of more violent, invasive times.

Ribbons and Ripples

May 31, 2016

On land, there is turmoil while under the surface of the water, the creatures seem to be unaffected. Add a dash (or lots!) of colour and you have the result - Ribbons and Ripples. I really hope you like it! You can see it here
