Every time we visit the seaside and take a walk along the sands we start collecting shells to decorate our Seaside Garden at home, and once we start looking we notice the amazing patterns and textures created on the sand as the tides retreat.
We recently drove over to Anglesey and after leaving the main road as it crossed over from the Welsh mainland we drove down lanes which got narrower and more secretive until we arrived at our favourite beach. On opening the car doors all we heard was silence occasionally broken by birdsong and the raucous calls of gulls. That is why it our favourite beach for a quiet walk. Come with us as we wander heads down seeking shells and finding the shapes and textures etched into the sand.
Please enjoy this gallery of photos to help you share our wanderings.
The strangest shape and texture of all belonged to these beached jelly fish, their star like shape and jelly texture sitting lifeless on the sands. It looked as if the sun had fallen from the sky and was resting on the sand.
We stopped part way home to watch the sun set over the sea. What a great day out!

A beautiful set Malc : you had the perfect bright low light, a great range of ripple forms, then an ‘on the ball’ brain, you must have had your coffee already, kicked in some keen compositional brain cells and your neuron connections clearly rippled free.
The sea air got all my senses boiling !
