Words are bit superfluous here. Pictures taken on the beach, with an iPhone, at Anderby Creek 2 days ago. Sky and light were utterly breathtaking. And, the beach was empty.
A lot to do at Seaside Lodge this morning – painting, pruning, sanding and waxing (furniture, cheeky!), but the sky is blue and it’s very hard to believe it’s mid-February.
So, we’re going to have another coffee and stare out at the lake some more.
Like Franz Kafka said: “Idleness is the beginning of all vice, the crown of all virtues”.
Splash of milk in my coffee please.
“We can’t sit around staring at the lake and drinking coffee all day”.
So we walked to the beach instead.
By the way, all these pics were taken on the morning of 15th February 2015 – it got cooler later, but the beach was as warm as the end of April.
We did get quite a lot done on the lodge later, I sanded and waxed an Ercol chair and Jon painted a floor, but it was one heck of a way to start the day.
Last picture of the picture window, taken on a very bracing, sunny February Sunday. Any time now, the window will be replaced with a wall of glass – with doors opening onto the deck overlooking the lake.
Bring it on!
Just fitted WiFi plugs at Seaside Lodge. Heat, water and light all controlled from an app. Big thumbs up to arriving at a warm and cosy lodge, even in the depths of winter. And lashings of hot water for an instant deep bath.
I’ve come across some lovely old images of Anderby Creek. I thought you may find it interesting if I group them together and post a batch from time to time. So, here’s no.1 – Anderby Creek’s lovely beach. Although the landscape has changed little over the last 8 decades, the amount of people on it has. I’ll start with a picture I took one sunny Sunday last September. Me and the fisherman were the only people on the beach. It’s easy to see why it has been voted one of Britain’s best undiscovered beaches. Bliss.
Seaside Lodge was built in 1959. I wonder if the first owners used their knitting machine to craft cossies like these little beauties?
