Fade to Grey

To hospital in Leeds today with my mother, who has her arm in a sling and they can't do much else with it. The shoulder should heal itself in about six weeks. Thanks to all for your good wishes - they are much appreciated. The hospital has called in the Intermediate Care Team who will call in several times a day to help with everyday tasks - brilliant!

Before this all happened on Sunday, I had a wonderful wander round all Tenby's lovely beaches on Saturday, and then again yesterday morning before we set off back.

One of the things that I love about Tenby in the summer is all the rich colours and indeed there were still plenty of these about even in early November: here's the harbour on Saturday:

But I've always loved beaches in their winter melancholy - - all greys and browns and silvers - - and so it was this weekend.

Caldey Island from South Beach:

An old boat on South Beach:

North Beach at low tide:

The two lifeboat stations - the old, disused one and the bright new modern one:

The headland at the end of South Beach:

and the long sweep of South Beach, with that headland now in the distance:

But you'll notice I've sneaked a palm tree into my final Winter Melancholy picture. Palm trees are never melancholy - they are always cheery and I love them for that reason.

It's been a bit of a grey weekend, in all senses. But in amongst it all, there were hints of the return of summer.
