Sea Anglers on the Humberston Fitties.

 Popcorn & I had a walk along the Humberston Fitties in January this year.  Not many people about but there were some sea anglers having a fishing contest.

A sandbank as the incoming tide advanced.

A view out to one of the old WW1 forts in the Humber Estuary.

One of the sea anglers, well wrapped up against the cold.

Another angler adjusting his rig.  I've been a keen freshwater angler most of my life but
only during the warmer months.  

The tide is almost at it's height now but the sandbank still uncovered.  Some folk often get
marooned on these sandbanks and need to be rescued.

I didn't see any of the anglers catch anything but they assured me they do.

This on had set up on the small staging which leads down to the beach.

Not a rough sea but it can be here during storms.

A distant view showing the little jetty with steps down to the beach.

Winter gales had blown sand onto the seafront footpaths and Council workmen were clearing it.

A couple more sea angler pics to finish with.

I mentioned on a recent post how Popcorn crosses his paws when
relaxing, I took this a few days ago.

It's a mobile phone pic.

  1. David, I’m constantly struck by how similar the Lincolnshire coast is to ours here in Zeeland. I love its natural wildness and am glad it isn’t all built up. The Spanish coast has been ruined by development, so it’s a blessing that England and the Netherlands are not as popular and these beautiful stretches exist. Your photos are really lovely!

  2. Oh and Popcorn looks very sweet with his paws crossed. I’m so glad he’s feeling better now.

  3. Thank you for commenting Val,. Yes I'm pleased our coasts haven't been commercialised for tourism, some areas have large caravan sites but that's all. And of course the climate helps, not quite the same as Spain, thank goodness.
    Popcorn is doing well now he's on preventative medication. The improvement and recovery from the Addisons Desease was dramatic and, although he'll be on medication for the rest of his life, the vets say dogs can live a full and active life on it. He will be regularly monitored with blood tests, I'm so glad he's better now and that I had insurance cover for him.
    Take care, David.

  4. I am trying to catch up with your photo adventures and I’m so glad to be back as it seems to make things feel normal once again. The beautiful muted tones of these winter colors are wonderful and the scenes look peaceful. Your signature pops of color are always fun to see. Popcorn looks very regal and relaxed! Take care.

    1. Hello Ann. So sorry, I must have missed this comment from you, thank you. David.
