Sparkling Sunday

img_1940

Last week’s Wordless Wednesday reminded me how few Duver posts I’ve posted recently, so today’s beautiful sunshine prompted me to bring the camera on my morning walk.  The photo above is the view easterly across the Duver towards the mouth of Bembridge Harbour.

Lower down the hill you can see south across to Bembridge and the Holy Trinity church spire.img_1941

Looking south westerly you can see the Yarborough Monument on Culver Down.img_1943

This is a similar shot to Wednesday’s, you can see the church spire againimg_1944

and turning right you can see the far western side of Bembridge Harbour.img_1946

This is a view looking south towards Bembridge and specifically the boatsheds of Bembridge Sailing Club.  This is an amazing sandy spit which in summer is covered in Evening Primroses.img_1953

Rounding the corner and looking out easterly to the Solent you can see St Helen’s Fort, one of the four Solent forts.  This one was built between 1867 and 1880.

Amazingly, at very low tides you can walk out to it. img_1957

Looking back south you can see Bembridge Lifeboat Station. img_1963

And just for those who’ve never met him, this is Nimbus, the one who ensures there’s always a walk.  And to be honest, it’s nearly always on the Duver.img_1952

Not very horticultural but very Duver!  I hope you all enjoyed a sparkling Sunday.
