Moody Monday……. Unsettled Weather


Rossall Point

Rossall Point, Fleetwood on Morecambe Bay, Lancashire.  At times this can be a very wild place, at others one of wild beauty with views across the bay to the distant Cumbrian Fells. The stormy weather does constantly change the shore line. Despite the many breakwaters and groynes along this part of the coast there is a constant shifting of the sands and channels. In this image you can see some wooden stumps, some times they are hidden below the shifting sands. I was told they were the wooden foundations of long gone wooden lighthouse that stood high above the tide on stilts.

As our weather has been rather unpredictable, swinging from one extreme to another, I thought this an appropriate image.  Who said this was summer!
