Stanley

Last weekend I went to Stanley...
 The Nut

Got to walk on the beach Friday night...
Tatlows Beach/Sawyer Bay

And watch the sunset...
Sunset over Green Hills


Early Saturday morning before sunrise I took a walk around to the small fishing harbour on the other side of The Nut...

 
One of the boats was up on slips...


Some of the houses under the Nut that I walked past on my way back to the beach...


The tide was quite high...


And I got to watch the sun come up behind The Nut...



I encountered some locals...alive...
 seagulls


 plovers

And dead...
 crab


 fish (just in case your weren't sure :))


 fairy penguin


starfish
 
  
I collected 4 garbage  bags of seaweed to put on the garden from West Beach at Stanley...


Saw an eagle...
Wedge-tailed or Sea (wasn't close enough to tell)

On my way back from collecting the seaweed I drove past historic Highfield House...


And some of the resident sheep...


And took this shot from the lookout...


Bye Stanley!!!
 

I'll be back...

Postscript:  check out the amazing similarities between Stanley and the Isle of Harris on Christine's blog.  (Her photos are so much better than mine!!)

  1. Some very interesting similarities with Harris! Amazing. I think I saw an eagle, and have just posted a photo where its shape is dimly visible - but I couldn't get a photo of it against the sky.

    1. Hi Christine! The similarities are amazing aren't they!! Guess that's why I have such an affinity with Scotland and the Scottish Isles :)) xx
