Two ever so slightly different images of the view of the coast, looking north from one of my favourite walks on the clifftops. Every time I go there, at least once a week, I can watch Seals, Peregrines and Kestrel, plus many assorted seabirds like Guillemot and Cormorant and all the usual gulls.

It is just over a year ago now that my then sparsely filled blog was made an Editors Pick on WordPress Discover. The blog was relatively young, only going about six months and had a following you only needed two people with hands to count. I had only made about thirty posts of single Black… Continue reading How Discover didn’t help much.
