Down the hill to the beach



A walk we haven't done for some time....
across the hills


and finding the recent storms have brought down a tree



heading on down to the beach
we spied something different



appeared to be a pile of large Lego pieces!




and indeed they really did look like grown up Lego -



placed to protect the chalets



Hope this works for them




I suppose they could always use this to help hold it up!!!



and a close up - amazing texture don't you think.

  1. I hope the lego protects those chalets, it looks very wobbly. Love the texture of that tree!

    1. Time will tell I think, as to whether they work.

  2. Are the lego bricks to help protect the beach from eroding during storms?

    1. I think so CJ. We were surprised to see something like that down there!

  3. The chalets remind me of the song with the line, "Little boxes on a hillside...and they all look just the same." Very interesting spot!

    Such character in that wood!

    1. Exactly, don't think I would want to stay in one that close to the edge!

    1. It was a good walk Christine...it's part of a hill. The other side of it is Ilfracombe and this was a beach called Hele (pron. heel).

  7. The chalets do not look real. A very unusual "neighborhood." How nice, that you can walk to the beach.

    1. I know, they look like toy town don't they. These are holiday chalets, so at least aren't lived in full time.

  8. Oh my! Those chalets are a little too close to the edge for me! Great texture in that 'tree'!

  9. All the chalets look like a Lego town from a distance too. The giant Lego bricks look amazing, I hope they do the job. The sea is trying to claim back the land for sure.
    My daughter has just bought a Lego model of Berlin (she visited last year). I need to learn how to do the linky thing :-)

  10. Lovely to see one of the old mooring posts still in existence.... sadly, all the posts in CM bay have long gone. And there were many of them. I remember the beach having about 7 or 8 when I was little. And one had the name of Polly Lightfoot, I have no idea why!

    1. Yes, it's sad when things like that change. I love the name Polly Lightfoot, sounds like a character from a book.
