Eiders and Sea Roses

A dramatic sky led us to the beach
early yesterday evening...
to see more sky and sea, click here.

After a brief rain with lightning,
the sky lightened a bit and further
down the beach, and to my delight,
I spotted them;
the eiders teaching their young.

As we rounded the corner, there
were more babies, the young gulls
were lined up by the edge of the sea.

Enjoyed seeing the ducks.

Sea roses, what a romantic name. Are they on the dunes where they live in sand and get salt spray. They must be very tough roses.

I've been very busy all day long, too busy. These pictures calmed me down and helped me breathe. Many thanks!
