Orme Sight

Orme Sight is a very striking sculpture by Thompson Dagnall. It is one of a number of installations to be found along the Sculpture Trail in Beacon Fell Country Park. Originally, you could look through the eye of the statue from behind and see Great Orme on the North Wales coast, provided it was a clear day! Sadly, the hole has been blocked due to vandalism.

On arrival, I found my digital camera had malfunctioned so I decided to try out the camera on my iPhone 4. I was quite pleased with the results, especially as it was such a dull day.

Spot the sea!

The Sea goes out a very long way. Ten minutes of very brisk walking brought us this close! We didn't reach it on this day. Maybe someone borrowed it for a few hours?

A Day by the Sea

Pembrokeshire in May. Bertie runs towards the sea with his piece of seaweed. Sooty stays close to Anne. What a nice day out it was.
