  Last Frost of 2020 This morning we woke to a bright and very frosty morning.  This inspired us to rise a little earlier than normal and try to get some frosty images.   Looking across the fields to Layham village A lone tree with the mist lifting We walked as far as Shelly and then back across the fields to Layham.  It felt magical standing in the field, surrounded by whiteness and stillness.    Field from Shelly to Layham This tree stands at the end of the field before crossing over the bridleway to join some more fields.From here we were homeward bound passing Layham mill on the way.

Walton Today was bright and sunny with a gentle breeze so we decided to go to Walton for a few hours as we hadn't been out for ages.  We wanted to see and take more photos of the damaged caused to the cliffs by the latest storms. The beach we had walked on and built sandcastles on with our Grandaughter in the summer had gone.  In its place were huge mounds that had fallen from the cliffs and the beach was just cover in stones and clay.  It won't take too many more storms before the cafe is lost to the sea. Having had some lunch we wandered along the beach towards the pier.  The bright colours of the beach huts are always good for a photo. There were several Turnstones resting on the walls and then taking off to see what morsel they could find from the incoming tide.
