"You Must See Our Holiday Snaps"

.
You know how when your friends get back from their holiday and they say to you
"you must pop round and have a look at our holiday snaps"?
.
Well, you're my friend.
.
And you're going to look at some of my holiday snaps and listen to my running commentary whether you want to or not.
.
No excuses will do.
.
I spotted this sailing boat from the caravan and zoomed in on it.
I've added the frame to make it look as though you're looking through a telescope.
.
.
The sea went out for about a quarter of a mile leaving a vast expanse of sand with impressions of the waves.
.
.
When the tide went out it left these mussels exposed to the sun.
.
.
.
This was the view from my deck-chair on the beach.
I noticed somebody had made 3 sandcastles in the foreground and thought it made a good composition.
.
.
Again, another view from my deck-chair.
.
.
I spent ages (and ages!) trying to capture a seagull in mid-flight from underneath.

There was danger from above waiting for the perfect shot.
It didn't come in the form of seagull-poop, but from the sun.
I burnt my legs lying in one position for so long!
.

.
A secret cave and beach that boy*jelly discovered.
.
.
Still burning those legs ...
.
.
Getting a bit arty-farty ... probably to the bemusement of onlookers!
.
.
No British beach holiday is complete without a wind-break.
.
.
Legs not quite crispy enough yet ...
.
.
.
And just to prove we were there ...
.
.
boy*jelly and me.
.
(Note to self : an arm's length isn't far enough away from the lens to stop the camera making your face look vast)

Well, since you called them "snaps" I've got to see them because that sounds ever so much clever to my American ear than photos or pics. Ms. Jelly, you just keep luring me in....:)

Okay, Emma, sorry but Colin is really me. Dang teenager never signs out of his google account. Didn't want you to be creeped out that some random teenaged boy was commenting on your post!
