in early september, we all met at my parents' house for my father's birthday. one evening, the niece and i sneaked out to spend an hour at the beach. we splashed through the sea mud, did some drawing in the sand, gathered feathers and stones, and had an ice cream. walkers and horse-drawn coaches were scattered across the wide, empty ground of the sea. the tide is a magic thing.

this weekend, the niece will come for a visit, along with her sister and their parents. what are you up to?

oh wonderful photos! i love the colours of your niece's clothes. the one where she draws with the feather in the sand is so dreamy. :)

The sea after summer is so moody and awesome. I've never seen a horse-drawn carriage on the beach; that's a brilliant idea.

I'll be staying at home, going for a walk, watching the leaves change. Enjoy your weekend :)

i was going to say exactly the same thing about the carriages as sarah. i think i would feel like i was in a children's book.

kristina - no penny for them said...

hi there! yes, the carriages are quite typical for that part of the north sea. i could imagine they exist in the netherlands and northern france as well, but i don't know.

there are a few hours each day, when the tide is out, that you can go out - in some cases to near-by islands - on the sea mud. it's slightly squishy, but very even, hard-ish ground, so the horses can pull the carriages with special rubber wheels quite easily. you can tell how eager they are to get out into the mud, when you see them go past.
