Yesterday I took the train down to Severn Beach, a small village and stretch of shoreline along the Severn Estuary. I had been once before with a friend, but we didn’t do much exploring (just a bit of sunbathing) so this time I wanted to have a good look around on the beach.
I only had a short time, due to limited trains home, but I got to go for a bit of a walk along the gravel/sand which was great fun as it reminded me of walking along the beach opposite my childhood home. I then did a bit of sunbathing while reading the 8th book in the Outlander series that I mentioned before (An Echo In The Bone), before climbing on some of the rocks and collecting some driftwood.
Here are a few photos I took whilst there….
There were loads of birds flying around while I was sat taking photos and luckily I managed to snap a few of them….
It was quite windy down there on the seashore, and the clouds were constantly skidding across the sky! And the sun was really bright, and at one point I managed to catch a picture of a rainbow ring around the brightness.
You can even see Wales from the shore…
I had a lot of fun in the two hours I was down there. Didn’t get to see the tide come all the way in, but I am hoping to go down with some friends one evening for a bit of a BBQ to watch the sunset, so we might get to dip our toes in the water then!
Have any of you made it down to a beach lately? Post a comment with the name of your nearest/favorite beach!
