Six word Saturday


 Come  with me, to the caves?


Sometimes it’s hard to stay away from the sea.  The weather these past few days has been incredible and, as always, I was drawn like a magnet.  In Panorama I mentioned the caves shaped by the motion of the waves on our north east coast.  Today I thought I’d take you down there.

Beautiful, isn't it?

Beautiful, isn’t it?

It's a strange landscape

It’s a strange landscape, legacy of a mining past

A scramble across the rocks and we're there

A scramble across the rocks and we’re there

At high tide the caves are cut off

At high tide the caves are cut off

As the tide creeps in

As the tide creeps in

Viewed from outside they're less intimidating

Viewed from outside they’re less intimidating

Especially the 'wedding arch'!

Especially the ‘wedding arch’!

I don’t think it’s a place I would loiter on my own.  At each visit the shapes have changed a little and there is new evidence of erosion.  Just time to show you a few of the rocks in detail.  Their colours fascinate- burned by the mines and bruised by the sea!

An endless array of haggard beauty

An endless array of haggard beauty

Or a lunar playground

Or a lunar playground

They speak for themselves, don't they?

They speak for themselves, don’t they?

I hope I haven’t tried your patience this morning?  I do tend to get carried away with the camera.

You’ll be delighted to know that you can have a little rest from me next Saturday.  I’ll be in the Algarve, but I’ll try not to bring back too many photos!  Have a wonderful week ahead and please don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face with your six words.

See you on Monday, if you fancy a walk.



  1. Well I hope you have brought back many photos both from Algarve and Poland. The cave and beach photos look like my favourite destination.


    1. I went further up the coast and found yet more caves in the week before I went to Poland, but goodness knows when I’ll post them. Thanks for your company, Paula. I’ll come and have a look at yours soon. 🙂


    1. I found some more caves a little further up the coast on Monday this week, Madhu. Amazing what you can find when you go looking. I’ve only lived here for 60 her-hum years!
      Sorry about the name debacle 🙂 I was enroute to Dad’s to do some cleaning before I go away. Me and the Samsung Mini are not your ideal combination 🙂 I’ll be lost without the laptop. Nothing for it but more walking 🙂

  2. Very lunar and wildly beautiful these photos Jo 🙂 I’m sure you’ll bring back more than a few photos from the Algarve 😉 Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine, such a glorious spring we’re having, does wonders for the soul doesn’t it? xx


    1. I found some more, this morning! Great excitement 🙂 I was on my own but they weren’t so deep. Believe me, I was cautious! The risk of subsidence worries me more than it might once have. Thank you! 🙂

  3. Always great to see the sea, and the shore, the beach, the rocks – I particularly like the low angles and the close-ups. Can’t get enough of it!


  4. nice flow- really liked the variety – the last set of rocks were my favs – (close-ups of the lunar playground) – oh and safe travels 🙂 ❤


  5. The rocks are beautiful. Sea caves have a special charm with their craggy shapes and views of the sky and sea from a place of darkness. They’re scary too, especially when you have the tide to contend with. I swam inside a deep sea cave in Western Samoa. It was a thrill, but my heart was in my throat the whole time.


    1. I had to make a return trip to take the rock photos, Otto, otherwise I would have been left behind in the caves 😦 You could spend hours down on that shore. Thanks for your visit 🙂


  6. Great shots of places that most of us never sea – deep into the bowels of the shoreline where only the sea can make such magnificent carvings. I really enjoyed the rocks and stones, for variation and colors.
