As I was getting ready to go out last night, I got a phone call to say that there was a seal pup on the beach and I should get down there with my camera. Never one to miss a photo opportunity, I went straight down to the beach.

The sea was so calm that you couldn’t tell the sky from the sea. The colours just faded into each other and there were lots of yachts out sailing. It’s amazing what a little bit of sunshine can do. There were lots of people out with their dogs and probably a few others who never usually venture to the beach after work which is practically on our doorstep. It was just what I needed after staring at a computer screen all day.

We reached the little seal pup which has apparently been seen swimming along the river for the last five weeks and was having itself a little rest while the tide was out. Very cute, don’t you think? I even managed to have a little stroke of him :).
