Carry a camera!

You never know when you’ll see something memorable, and when you do it’s good to record it.

This week we’ve had contrasting weather.  On Tuesday (or it might have been Monday) the morning was bright and clear, so I was intrigued to see a bank of cloud lying on the water just visible over the marine lakes.

So I carried on around the costal path, to see this:

A solid looking bank of what I now knew must be mist lying across the Bristol Channel. I could see it was just rolling forward towards over the water.  A little further on …

… I drew level with the mist and could see how thin the bank of mist was.  It was actually more like a long sheet,  billowing out like a sail.  Traces of mist drifted on after the main bulk, and further down the estuary I could see a similar bank rolling in, closer to the Welsh side.  I’m beginning to understand why they call this Poet’s Walk!

It’s something I’ve not seen before.  Glad I had the camera with me!

Yesterday the weather was completely different with a strong wind whipping up what passes for surf locally.  Being a muddy estuary, the foam was a marvellous crispy brown – no white horses here!
