Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside
I do like to be beside the sea!
I do like to stroll along the Prom, Prom, Prom!

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven – Turn, turn, turn.
Many thanks for the regular comments Julie – I think I would worry about you if they stopped coming. All the best, R
You’re very welcome, Robin. I very much appreciate the time you spend reading my work, too.
Outstanding photos. Clear and crisp and very appealing.
Many thanks – all down to the fabulous lens on the Fuji X100s
It is incredible that lens!!!! (And the eye behind, of course!!!)…Beautiful beautiful shots!!!!
Easier to sing along to than that Doves track, Robin 🙂 🙂
And lovely shots too.
Thanks Jo. A fine song but not a good version – Jimi Goodwin should sue 🙂

C’est magnifique! ❤
