Discovering Autumn

Life is always enriched by the discovery of new things or the re-discovery of some forgotten pleasures or treasures. Whilst we holidayed on the North Yorkshire coast recently, as a family, we made many new discoveries and reacquainted  ourselves with some forgotten joys. The major discovery and realisation fro me, was that Autumn is most definitely my favourite time to be beside a home grown beach.


We rediscovered our love for a good walk, in beautiful surroundings, with stunning views, and the versatility of a stick and the fun your imagination can have with it.

Then the rock pools brought the discovery of hermit crabs, lots of them and that they do actually give you a nip if you hold them in your hand.

An activity we haven’t made enough time for recently is kite flying. It was wonderful to rediscover the joy of this activity, especially for our youngest boy , Tink, who always finds it so relaxing and calming.

DSC_0186 DSC_0190A fantastic new discovery for Stig was the art of crabbing. Something we’ve never done before but he loved it, he was patient and calm whilst he waited for a bite on his bacon rind bait. He wasn’t disappointed he caught four crabs, all of which I failed to get a shot of.


And I discovered that I love taking my camera to the seaside because there is always so much to capture.

    Beautiful photographs. I much prefer the beach in the autumn to the summer. How wonderful to find fossils, and I love the shot of your so standing in the rock pool in his wellies :) #OneWeek

    What gorgeous photos! What is it about boys and sticks? 😀 I do miss the English Sea side… I think it’s quite unique, and beautiful whatever the weather! :)
