Thursday’s Special: Scattered

My take on this is “throwing something in various random directions”which is what this fisherman appeared to be doing with his line.

Of course you could also say that the pebbles on this beach at Budleigh Salterton are also scattered randomly. It only took around 400 million years to make this beach.

Please visit Paula to see her wonderful scattering of raindrops.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. As much as I like sandy beaches best, there is something about a pebble beach that attracts the eye. Nicely caught, Jude.
    regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I got a few nice shots of boats on that beach too. Maybe I’ll find an excuse to post them one day!

  2. Pebbles look gorgeous no matter how you find them. Scattered is how they like it. Great closeup, Jude. Love how the fisherman is flipping / throwing his line out.

      1. Ahh, I’m fond of sleepy little Budleigh, especially the walk up the Otter. I went to Lanhydrock this afternoon – it rained!

        1. Yup! Been raining here on and off all day and yesterday was cloudy too, though warm. I’m not bothered though as I can sit in the conservatory and listen to the cows (!) and the birds ( 🙂 ) and rain on the roof and read my book. Plenty of time to explore. I bet Lanhydrock was looking lovely though.

    1. It’s an interesting story about the pebbles. Started off as layers of sandstone in northern France!

  3. I remember that Felixstowe also had a very pebbly beach. I liked it the least of all the seaside places my dad used to take us to, because I only wanted to build sandcastles. Love the scattered fishing line idea. 😉

    1. That’s one thing I like a lot about Cornwall, so many sandy beaches, but now I just like to look at them or walk across them, not make sandcastles! The simple pleasures of a seaside holiday; plastic bucket, spade, fishing net, ice-cream. Bet it is a lot more expensive for parents today!
