Today our postal workers are on strike, so I didn’t have to wait in for any spontaneous delivery. Instead, I decided to take a tour of Port Erin and deliver some of my Christmas cards by hand. You can tell winter is knocking on the door. The drafty winds and grey skies speak a thousand words, so I wrapped up warm in my cosy handmade scarf and hat and set out. Each day is so different; each tide brings in new spoils and smooths out the rough edges on the beach. Each day the sky changes, and even areas across the sky appear to send out different themes and messages. And in between the grey and white clouds, the silvery glows across the sea and the specks of sunshine, even the moon, all make their personal claim to the sea and sky. These stories are told in the photos below, so even if the walk itself was nothing remarkable, the skies let you in to their secrets and make every walk special.
Ps. No matter how I set out the photos, they always arrange themselves in their own unique way 😉

Stunning photos and what a wonderful walk. The skies look great for December and the flora etc is still looking fresh given the battering it must have taken as we are winter…
It’s horrific out there tonight . I have just driven back from Douglas – tree down at the Nunnery, main road to Castletown completely closed, car being buffeted about in the wind, twigs flying around, partly flooded roads and rain! Glad to be home.
