A misty morning at Cleethorpes.

We took Suzi for a walk along our promenade at Cleethorpes on quite a misty day.  The tide was up and local people were out enjoying a rare day without any wind, some were on the water Paddle Boarding.  This is a relatively new activity to Cleethorpes.

Paddle boarders out on the water.  You have to wade a long way out to get any depth here.

These buoy markers are to mark the safe swimming areas, water skiers aren't allowed here.

On the left is "Brighton Slipway" where the RNLI Inshore Lifeboat is launched from.
The lady there was taking a photo on her 'phone.

A different lady, walking here dog and having a conversation on her "dog & bone"!!

The tide is gently coming in and lapping over the boardwalk.

Wading birds are here most of the year but large number are now arriving from the Arctic.

A family of swans arrived, I'm always surprised to see Swans on saltwater, but we do see
quite a few from time to time.  I decided to photograph them as they approached me.

The swans decided I had nothing for them and soon left.

The mist lifted briefly to allow a colourful view of our Pier, I preferred the mist.

People dog walking along the beach and some paddle boarders out on the water.

A last look along the promenade toward our Leisure centre before we headed home.

I've said before that I prefer our town in the off season, we get it to ourselves and can enjoy leisurely walks along the promenade or beach.

  1. Paddle boarding seems to have become very popular - though I've never tried it I like the mistiness in your early photos, gives the pictures a different dimension. Agree entirely about the pleasure of the off season, when visiting popular beaches, villages and towns, so much more relaxing. Have a good week, I hear Christmas is coming soon! Good wishes.
