This morning there was a fresh, blustery NE wind. The prevailing winds in these parts are SW, but often turn to NE winds, which bring much colder weather. The sun now gets up a long time before we do, but early morning on the beach is still a magical time.
A lot of big waves, white horses (waves with a foamy head on them when curling over) and breakers near the shore;
Many blooming poppies got blown away and just the seedpods are remaining...
And more mysteriously... something has been sleeping in the middle of a clump of poppies... at the cliff edge.. behind the railings!!
I suspect it to have been a fox.. it was certainly a bigger sized animal, judging from the way the poppies have been bent sidewards, and even more telling, Rafael went totally mad with the scent... wanting to get over the railings (which thank goodness are high enough for him not to want to try!!) and only reluctantly walking on after returning there time and time again...
Question remains...does one sleep comfortably on a cliff edge?? that close?? even if you are a fox???
