Walking along the prom at Seaton May2020

As it is now allowed to travel to exercise we took a trip to the seaside at Seaton which is 20 miles from us.

It was a beautiful day, blue sky and seamless sunshine and the sea was calm with the waves just gently lapping the sand.DSC03951

There were few people about, and those that were were keeping their 2 metre distance.DSC03953

A group of 4 teenagers went swimming in the sea.  I imagine it was still quite cold.

The benches were mostly empty which makes a change but just shows how few people were there. Neil took advantage for this snap.DSC03954

There were gorgeous banks of flowers along the promenade.DSC03955DSC03957

I took the opportunity to wear a sun dress – makes a change from gardening clothes.DSC03959

It was really gorgeous there and as I had not been out anywhere (except our local lanes) for 8 weeks made a great change.DSC03961

However, there was no where to buy an ice cream or any refreshment open, and the public toilets were also all closed, so if you are going to Seaton, bear this in mind.

The cheepsters in bed

Now that our broody hen Mrs Speckledy has died the 5 little chicks have been left to their own devices.  We were hoping they would be warm enough when they go to bed at night now that they don’t have Mrs Speckledy’s wings to snuggle under.  So we found a small box and lined it with straw and put it in the nest box. And sure enough all 5 little cheepsters snuggle down together at night to keep warm.  It is so cute to see them like little sardines in a tin.DSC05646

Luckily also we are experiencing a heatwave in the UK, so it is quite warm at night, which has helped them to survive as we don’t have a heat lamp for them.  They are growing quickly and their little wings are developing.  The little grey chick has furry feet and the multi coloured one already has a top knot!!  It will be fun trying to work out what breeds they are when they are more fully developed.

If you want to see our chicks, now is the time to visit.  We still have some vacancies in July in the bed and breakfast.
