The last few days the weather has been a bit rough, I’m not going to describe it as bad because I like rough weather; I like the wind and the rain, and the snow (not that we’ve had any and only if I don’t have to go out in it – especially driving) and I’m even happy to go out in it sometimes, except for the snow of course. Anyhow, the weather has been a b it rough for the last few days – I don’t like repeating myself in a paragraph. Sometimes I do it without realising, today I do it for effect, and I’ve lost that effect now by waffling on about it.
The one thing the rough weather has done over the last few days is to stop me seeing my Jelly fish. But, they were out in force today. There must have been quite literally thousands of them. I’ve tried to bring them out by making the header picture mono, but I don’t know how well it has worked. They were so crowded that sometimes one would pop up through the surface of the water. Amazing, and strangely beautiful. Fascinating.
The next picture isn’t for the jelly fish, and I apologise for the subject, but I want to show how clear the water is;
Ignore the subject (mostly), I ranted about it in yesterdays post.Here is a shopping trolly, it is fully submerged, even the wheel closest. I’ve put it up because as I walked a bit further along the edge of the cockle pond, there was a point where there was a solitary jelly fish moving gently and calmly through the water. It didn’t look as though it was in the least bit bothered about it’s journey, just gently swimming along in that pumping kind of motion. As I stood there watching it, I had a feeling of utter tranquility, it really was most unusual. Very difficult to describe. But, it was absolutely delightful.
After the wildness of the last few days, the ponds were once again their calm, flat selves. At that time of the morning, it really is a very pleasant place to be. Of course, I enjoyed the rest of the walk. There wasn’t much going on in the harbour, the Normandie came in, the other ferries were working, a small black rib went out. The water in the harbour was only moving a little bit.
This yacht, the Black Lady has been berthed here for quite a while. I don’t know anything about her, but I’d like to find out. I really do like the look of her. She looks quite well equipped with modern tools; two radars and self erecting spinnaker, it wouldn’t surprise me if should cross an ocean. Very interesting. Today’s walks was one of those that I will look back on with a lot of pleasure.
