Day 481 oh I do like to be beside the seaside 🌊🌞🔥🐶🐾👣

Clean bed last night with lightweight sheets…. And yet I didn’t sleep quite as well…. We’ve had the same heavy but soft flannelette duvet cover on since before Christmas. I’ve managed to wash it and change it same day every time since then. I felt the need for change 😆

I think the weight of the covers helps me sleep more soundly. I was up and down to the loo a few times last night.

Anyway poor Craigie is working today so I decided to take Calaidh down to the beach for a run this morning. She ran… I paddled. I couldn’t tell you the last time I paddled and it was bloody amazing.

Ready to go mumma!

I’m a member of the wild swimming group on FB and have never quite managed to do it. I always have some excuse…. I even bought a dryRobe but still never seem to actually do it. It must be very cold as I felt the pain with the water just above my knees!!!

We have arrived at Portencross car park

Still can’t get over the excitement of fitting under the height barrier. Simple things in life eh?!

The tips of the mountain on Arran are the only bit visible in the mist!
The walk out to the beach
Check this guy…. Think someone’s made a stag out of stuff lying around the rocks 🪨
Instead of “three craws sat upon a wa’” sing “a hunner craws sat upon a fence” they never even moved when Calaidh went down into the water!
Beautiful wild flowers 💐

Now I did see one thing that made me really sad….. someone had placed some rocks on a huge jellyfish… obviously had the fear it would float in the sea and hurt someone but the poor thing was lying in the sun with 2 big rocks on it. I’m sure it was already dead as it had some holes where I think it had been burnt by the sun and dried out. I can’t believe that someone could be so cruel as to do that and not even give it a second thought. Heres a pic of a happier jellyfish…. 💜💜💜💜

So…. Sad stuff aside.

It was beautiful. Stunning. Out of this world.

And breathe…..
Isle of Arran in the distance
Paddling!!!!!! Look how clear it is.
Look into my eyes…. Not sure about this….
Still following you though!
Calaidh, me and my seagull went for a walk.
Lovely circular ripples over the sandbank
Check out those Phoenix shaped clouds!
Sniffing the stone!
Honestly just stop and look at this for a moment…. Scotland. Half an hour from our house. Wow!
Please can we head back to dry land.
Ok that’s better now… this way…
Beautiful yacht. Reminds me of my neighbours!!
Wee thistles!
The mist surrounding Arran is clearing!
Arty sea shot which should be renamed arty grass shot maybe?!?
Quick run out to the rocks but now where to paddle so back up to the shade of the van.
Tall floating seaweed
Shade and lots more water!
That was fun, now I need a sleep!

I have actually had the loveliest day. I have not sat out in the sun all day which is very unlike me… I’ve actually enjoyed sitting inside in the shade too. It’s still scorching and I think it must be in the late 20’s C again.

I forgot to mention the other day that I’d left my bikini top hanging up drying and puppy number 1 seems to have chewed the strap…..

I was gutted!!!!

Today I decided to fix it…….. look what I managed to do.

Instead of sewing the strap onto the shoulder I sewed it on to the back 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣

I even checked to make sure I wasn’t sewing it on back to front and I imagined I would do that…. What a muppet. I only found out when I tried to put it on…….. 🤦🏻‍♀️ I sewed it on so well it took me ages to unpick it too. I did actually laugh out loud though.

I also put a new phone screen on and managed to get that right 3rd time. That old saying….. 😆

It’s been a lovely peaceful afternoon.

I have to say I am feeling really good just now. Calm, relaxed and chilled out…. Despite the intense heat! Life is good and long may it continue.

Stay safe everyone 🌞🌞🌞
