Seaweed

We woke to blue skies and a little sun this morning.  Intermittent showers that do come with some force are interspersed with sunshine.  Come on lets take a chance 'don your coats and some stout shoes and let me take you on a little adventure.

A five minute drive brings us to a little cove near the lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis, Stoth beach.  Known to my grandchildren as pirates cove where they have had many an adventure when they visit.  A beautiful sandy beach that is a sun trap in the summer months.

The ground as you approach is sodden from all the rain and is laying.


The path leading down is quite a trial to get down as the water is running down the hill.


Be careful, watch your step.



I have never seen so much seaweed it is a couple of feet high, strewn across the rocks and the beach.




The sea came in with some force hitting the rocks and then retreating to begin its journey all over again.  The white foam enhancing the beauty of the swirling water.



Deep breaths now as we climb back up the path watching where you walk as it is quite treacherous.  Certainly easier to walk down than it is to walk back up.



Hope you enjoyed our little adventure.  Back to the cottage for homemade bread, a mixed seed variety and some scrambled eggs collected fresh this morning...with a pot of tea of course.


See you soon.

  3. Oh how I wish we could actually do this. I'd wear stout boots too...LOL...stout...we don't use that word unless it means a chubby person...stout in stature....that may have been a word to describe me. Yes, walking down is easier than going back up. Enjoy your tea and seed bread and eggs.

  7. That's a lot of seaweed, it's amazing how the sea brings its treasures in and leaves them behind. We've got gale force winds and torrential rain again here, when will it end?

  8. Thanks for taking us along on your walk to the beach this morning. Seaweed is good for the garden and compost, if you're allowed to collect it. What enormous waves must have brought it all to your shores. So nice to return home to a cozy meal and a cup of tea.

  11. Gorgeous. I certainly enjoyed my visit. Seaweedy beaches here too. Sadly lacking your sunshine. Maybe tomorrow. B x

  12. enjoyed my walk too... haven't been near the beaches in awhile. In Nova Scotia they use seaweed for fertilizer and around the outside of older houses/basements as a windbreak/insulation in the winter.Over the winter it breaks down and can be put on the fields.... as least that's what they did where my Mother lived ( Malagash, NS)

  13. Wow.So much seaweed.Did you go beach combing?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I’m exhausted! (just kidding). Your beach is very dramatically beautiful, especially after a storm.

  15. Good morning my dear Lorraine. Such a lovely journey you took us on today. I'm amazed at the depth of the seaweed. I can just imagine your grandchildren running around the cove playing pirates.
    Wishing you and Gerard a lovely day and praying for you both daily my friend.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  16. Oh, I’d want to take a trailer load of that lovely seaweed back for the compost bin :-). I ~think~ but don’t quote me, that you are allowed to take anything above the high water mark.

    At least your beach is not full of plastic waste, some of the images I have seen this week are unbelievable.

  17. Iagree, seaweed is so useful in a garden, but in Cornwall one has to have permission to collect it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I love the ocean. You are so lucky to live near enough to visit and enjoy it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would love to live near a rocky ocean. I keep telling my husband that. This would be heaven for me. I love howling winds and ocean sounds.

    ReplyDelete
  20. That was a great walk... now I'm tired out and ready for that tea and homemade bread.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for the lovely visit to the beach. Our beach is snow and ice covered at this time. I live near the ocean in Eastern Canada and sometimes after strong winds, certain beach have seaweed like yours. I have used seagrass after it turns back for fertilizer in my garden. It seems to do well for strawberries.

  22. Thanks for taking us on your hike down to the beach and back up. Did you both do the walk? I hope you had a cell phone in case of emergencies and I also hope it had cell service!! How nice to have a warm stone cottage to come home too.. and fresh bread! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  23. Oh, so lovely... I especially love the horizon in the first picture. Homemade bread and tea at the cottage surely would be a treat!

  25. glad to see you havent been swept away

  26. I'm glad that all is well with you and that you were able to take us on this walk to the beach. It's fascinating to see the huge amount of seaweed that must have been thrown up by the strong waves during your recent stormy weather. All the best to you and your neighbours at this challenging time of the year with the weather.

  27. Oh my gosh, it's so beautiful! Love your photos!

  28. That is a lot of seaweeds washed ashore. I wonder if these are the edible type.

  34. I needed that sea air! Glad you didn't slip.

    I do a mixed seed loaf but cheat nowadays as I use a breadmaker and the seed flour I use is a Wessex Mill one, though I often chuck in a handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

  35. Whoo..what a lovely invigorating walk, thank you! It all looks beautiful and then home made bread and scrambled eggs too. Yummy :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. It looks gorgeous! I've heard that seaweed is very good for the compost pile. I know that plants grown near the ocean always look very lush and healthy.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That was quite the beach walk with lots of seaweed entwined everywhere over there. I've seen that happen on the beach here in Oregon when there's been high tides. I'm drinking some hot tea right now. May eat a slice of my bday cake as well. Enjoy the rest of the week! Hugs!!

  38. Glad to see such clearing weather after the storms that have been battering your area, Lorraine. And, that breakfast sure sounds delicious after such a walk.

I simply want to say thank you to this electronic company and help spread their fame abroad. If you ever are in need of this card contact them via email :blankatmdeliveryxpress@gmail.com.
    Don't mail them if you not really ready for this card is gonna cost you money to buy the card note that,they offer card to firms, orphans,individual and business personnels mail them immediately .
