A bright dry day, just perfect for a walk. Just outside our cottage a farm worker in a very smart tractor ploughing the field. He just missed my fence post. No more walks across the field until the crop is cut in the autumn.

Click on pictures for more detail.

These naughty cattle have broken through the fence into the kale. Don't they look happy?

They usually come over to see us when we walk by, but not today.

When we reach the cliff path the dogs look down to see if there is anything interesting on the beach.

The water looks very chilly.

This herring gull seems to be on lookout.

How wonderful to be able to glide through the air like a fulmar. You can see on the cliff that they have already chosen their nesting sites.

I like this "window " in the rock, and wonder how it was formed.

This piece of sandstone fell from above a few years ago and makes a nice seat from which I can look out at the lovely view.

Not bad Eh!

Such a delightful walk. I love the cow picture, they look like they are having a grand time! The rock window is quite unique, and the ocean looks extremely cold.
Wonderful pictures!
Sunny :)

Thanks for taking us with you on a walk through your beautiful countryside. It looks as if Spring has arrived and the countryside is getting busy. Do the cattle often take down the fence? The dogs look as if they'll wait and take a swim on another day.

Marvellous! I hope the dogs know not to cross the field ;-)
Those cliffs are amazing and the 'window' is astonishing.

Hi Chris, Thanks for taking us on your walk.... I loved seeing those rocks and cliffs --along the beach area. Those birds found a neat place to nest, didn't they? The sandstone is so interesting...

Thanks for the walk... I needed that exercise... Sorry to hear that you all have had more snow... Yipes.

Looks like it was a nice sunny day for your walk. Looks like the cows are really enjoying the kale. I'll guess that Bryan and Jarvis had lots of wonderful smells to keep them occupied. The views of the cliffs are amazing!

Those cliffs are gorgeous! I too love that window photo and the cheeky cows. :-)

What a super place to walk. Lucky you!
