Berwick Upon Tweed - Part 2 - the Beach
Before we headed for lunch, we took advantage of some sunshine and headed for the beach. (Most of these images are larger if you want to enlarge them in a new window.)
The tide was out, so we were able to walk out a good ways. Low tide reveals secrets that aren't visible otherwise. There are also tall rocks to pose upon. And of course, when you live at the beach, you use what you have around to mortar your garden wall. I don't know how far out fishermen have to go to catch lobsters, but the lobster traps were so colorful and gorgeous! We all posed around an enormous anchor that had been turned into a direction sign. Happily, our tutors, Jonny and Mike joined us along with illustrator Brita Granstrom, who lives there. What a lovely place. But as you can see, the weather turned yet again. So we headed for lunch...
