The edge of the salt marsh/coastline at Stiffkey.

 

 

 

The part starts off over the marsh - Val, Christine, Judith, Dave, Alan and Katherine.

   

 

     

Val getting up close and personal with the sea lavender - right.

   

 

 

 

 

A note from Val on the plants - from left to right - sea purslane, sea lavender and marsh samphire.

   

 

 

 

The channels in the salt marsh, connected to the sea,  empty as the tide goes out .....

 

 ... until they are empty.

Other depressions, however, remain full of seawater from the previous high tide.

     
     

 

The point where the salt marsh ends and the extensive sands take over; I presumed the pipe (broken in one place) to be a sewerage outfall?

   

 

 

 

The endless vista of sand, sea and sky at Stiffkey.

 

 

Holkham - for tea!

 

 

Dave and Val admire the scene.  The sun had become very hot in a totally clear sky.

 

The Victorian lodge, which now serves as a tea room and gift shop.
