A Winter walk


Another walk a few days ago and we drove round to Westward ho!   Always good for a wander and it is nice seeing the various beach huts along the esplanade.  Now mostly closed up for the Winter months.  There was one I spied though with its door open and the owners still enjoying it this side of New Year...

    1. Thanks Cris, yes it really is called Westward Ho! and is spelt with the exclamation after Ho as well.
      Here's some info about it from Wikipedia:

  4. There's something so mesmerizing and calming about watching the ocean. Love all the shades of blue you captured.

  5. The beach huts are aDORable! (But……the fourth picture down reminds me of a Forensic TV show I saw where a wealthy couple was murdered by their son! Their house looked EXACTLY liked that picture!)

    1. LOL - I'll always think of that poor couple now when I see these chalets! Mind you, had I done a 90 degree turn, there's a very old house that gives me the total spooks and I didn't photo it because it is SO awful...perhaps I'll force myself to photo it another time for you to see. On second thoughts here's the street view photo
