Cleethorpes seafront.

 A few photo's from a walk along Cleethorpes seafront.

Some hardy people enjoying the beach on a chilly October afternoon.

The tide goes a long way out at Cleethorpes but I prefer low tide for taking photo's
as it's has more interest.

Local people and dog walkers enjoying a peaceful afternoon.  The building in the B/G
is our Leisure Centre.

Cleethorpes is on the east coast of England, just inside the Humber Estuary. 
The mouth of the Estuary can be seen on the horizon with Spurn Point Lighthouse 
and a WW1 Fort to the rightBeyond that is the North Sea.

Although there were a few people out we still kept our distance.

The Pier in the distance and the rides and amusements that our visitors enjoy.

And finally, I looked over the railing onto the beach to see this happy local looking at me.

A few local Autumn pictures.

Just a few pictures taken in our garden and some  locally, a hundred yards from our house, on a misty morning.

This is our "Smoke Bush" with Autumn red leaves.

A few fallen leaves from our Silver Birch Tree.

One of the main roads into Cleethorpes, it goes right through to the seafront & beach.
On the right is a different sort of beach, a Beech hedge in Copper colours.

Sunlight burning away the early mist.

And when I returned home Suzi was waiting for me.

Autumn colours, at last!

 The mild weather has delayed the Autumn colours in our part of Lincolnshire but, finally, they have arrived.  We had a ride around to enjoy them before the high winds, which are forecasted, remove them .

Cows at Grainsby.

 We've been visiting Grainsby for almost 50 years taking children, Grandchildren and all our dogs including Suzi, our current one.

Every year we look for the arrival of the cows from their winter quarters and then, in the Autumn we hope to keep seeing them until they're gathered in to go into winter accommodation.  

They always come over to have a look at us, or maybe they just want to inspect our dog?

Since taking these pictures, the cows have gone into their winter accommodation.  We'll be looking forward to their return to the fields at Grainsby again in the Spring.
