After an early start and a busy morning I decided that todays walk would be on the beach. As you can see this area has huge expanses of sand which at this time of year one can virtually guarantee will not be crowded. The walk was quite challenging because there was a strong easterly wind which is a cold direction here. So I was looking forward to getting home and warming up only to discover a very cold dark house with no power. Power was restored in the early evening but it did serve to remind how we are so dependent on equipment and gadgets that all require electricity and recharging. My language whilst searching for torch and/or candles was probably not suitable for public consumption.
