Waking up to a snowy scene is a wonderful thing.
Breakfast demolished in record time, winter warmers layered on & out of the door before you could say ‘Rise and Shine’!
The bird feeder has been topped up ready for the influx.
The wild teasel & grasses look lovely with a little coating of snowiness
Along the path to the beach and the sky opens up to betray a sign in the distance of what’s heading our way.
The shoreline is a mass of froth & foam & sea spray as the breakers creep in and unleash their chilly surge on the sands.
Sail Mhor and An Teallach hidden away under a cloudy blanket. The mountain Hares and Ptarmigan content to be camouflaged from the circling Eagles
Behind us the sun drenched waves crash onto Udrigle beach as the wind sweeps over their crests
Ahead of us the forbidding sky hovers, awaiting the perfect time to unload it’s next shower of winter
Perfect winter jacket! a tad on the itchy side maybe
7,8,9,10……. ready or not!
Blue sky gleams over the frosted sand
The turquoise hue of the water briefly shimmers as a wave arcs before the whitecaps curl and thunder onto the swell beneath
Whirling waters pummel and smooth the obliging rocks
In creeps the darkness to threaten with another wintry onslaught
Gradually the beach side homes are consumed by the approaching blizzard
With hats pulled down as far as they can go and scarves up to our noses, we’re ready for a short snowy tussle ….. then home to a log fire and mulled wine
