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.

Those pebbles are, indeed, scattered randomly!
You just want to collect a bucketful, but of course you are not allowed to…
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
The colours you find in pebbles are quite interesting. Not so nice to walk on though!
Not a beach for lying on but a fascinating exploring beach.
I got a few nice shots of boats on that beach too. Maybe I’ll find an excuse to post them one day!
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.
Not sure what he was doing Tess. A fishing line or part of a net?
Nevertheless, great captures. ❤
Budders, you’ve been to Budders???
Oh yes! But not recently. This was about 18 months ago.
Ahh, I’m fond of sleepy little Budleigh, especially the walk up the Otter. I went to Lanhydrock this afternoon – it rained!
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.
These rocks and pebbles are beautiful. Love the shot
He seems to be throwing that line in a vert haphazard, scattery sort of way.
That’s a really long time to make a beach. I adore pebble beaches. Thank you, Jude.
It’s an interesting story about the pebbles. Started off as layers of sandstone in northern France!
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. 😉
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!
I’m sure you’re right about that. We were easily amused. Kids these days, not so much.
