Apart from a couple of hail showers it has been mainly sunny. So off we went, well wrapped up against the icy wind for a walk on Barricane beach. Incidentally Woolacombe beach has just been announced as the best beach in the UK, in the top 5 in Europe and number 13 in the world. Not bad for a beach that is only 20 mins down the road.
The tide was out so there more opportunities for rock pooling.
I could spend a morning gazing into these pools, if it wasn't so cold in the wind.
We mainly saw the common Beadlet anemones and a few Snakelocks anemones.
When we got home I put in a couple of hours working outside, first splitting logs and bringing them in and then making a start on building another wall at the side of the back lawn. Only a short one this time but then I can sort out the bit of ground above. The fire is blazing and I'm looking forward to trying some of the bread pudding I made. I adapted the recipe slightly due to lack of ingredients but I wanted to use up the pieces of brown, white and toasted bread left from Romas' visit. It certainly smells nice.
