Morecambe Beach

Beach log, originally uploaded by Lancaster Today.

The summer holidays are fast running out, so we made the short journey to Morecambe Beach, about three miles from the house. Despite the approaching autumn chill, August = beach for us (even if nobody else in Morecambe & Lancaster seems to agree).

But who needs people when you have a log for company? And with buckets and spades, why that adds up to a perfect summer day!

The third photo was taken earlier in the summer: same subjects, same location, same activity - but taken by my partner on her LG Renoir phone. It's a far superior photo of Yasmin & Caolan :(

  1. This is a very fine-looking beach! And it's especially nice when you have it more or less to yourselves.

    Excellent photography. I especially like the composition of the first shot!

  2. O it must be years since I was on this beach - busy but uncrowded it was then.

  3. Thanks Jacob, and good to know someone actually knows the beach Gerald. I'm not sure what Morecambe was like when you knew it, but a lot of it has seen much better days now. However, this end of the town is quiet and pleasant, and the beach is an underused little gem.

  4. A bucket and a spade. That's all you need at the beach. Lets build a few sand castles!

  5. Beautiful shots! It's hard for me to imagine having a chill in August on the beach. We are still sweltering!

  6. The kids are enjoying the end of summer, that's for sure. Nice to have the beach to yourselves.

  7. It looks like beach erosion has left a little beach for drift wood and kids to play.

    I have the issue of "breast feeding" on my main blog today Pick a Peck of Pixels
