17 Days Apart

[210-365] 27th. February 2021- I have contrasted todays pics with those taken 17 days ago. Then it was winter and the tail end of an easterly storm, bitterly cold, very windy and my fingers were numb and painful from the cold. I was the only fool on the beach.

Today is another world, more like summer, people sunbathing, a lot of bare flesh, car park full, takeaway doing a roaring trade, swimmers in the sea, fishermen with their tents set up, kids paddling, people walking. No scarves, no heavy coats, no bobble hats.

The construction of the sea defences continues apace. That whole middle section has been added since I was last here. Now I understand how they are doing it. In the second photo the stone slope is quite narrow and small. What I didn't realise until seeing the operation today is that first they dig a huge deep trench and the stone slope is built quite far down into it so that when finished most of it is back filled and covered up.

And on the eighth day the Lord said let there be twice cooked chips. (At least he should have).

Where is the fish to go with the chips? I love fish and chips, but more the fish than the chips. smile

It was supposed to be exercise not eating but when chips are calling it's a compromise.smile

What a difference 17 days make. Here it's almost overnight sometimes. We went from a bitter, bitter cold (with snow) to literally Spring weather within two days. But we know that it won't last...winter is still lingering.
BTW those chips look fantastic, mouth watering.

Yes. We are just enjoying it while it lasts.
