Blue skies in January compel me to squeeze every last sunny drop from the short hours. Saturday’s last light was golden at Compton Beach. It was chilly, sat on the rough grass of the cliff’s edge, but still perfect for a winter’s picnic of tea and brownies.
I always hated tea from a flask, but I’ve just discovered that the secret is proper loose leaf tea without milk (and a big slab of chocolate brownie to help wash it down).
We sipped our tea as the light dipped below the water, glowing orange while the last of the surfers sat and watched that last sunny drop.
So that’s the secret to tea in a flask? am also not a fan. Love tea but has to be hot ribena in a flask, tea never works out but maybe I should try tea leaves – thanks.
Yes do! My favourite tea at the moment is called ‘Georgian Old Lady’ (after the country, not the historical period!)
Such a beautiful sky. Certainly warms the soul with or without a cup of tea. I have a soft-spot for coffee in a flask, it reminds me of childhood outings with mum and dad. Fruit cake makes it even better. x
Oh yes, bara brith is my favourite, especially on a cold day.
your photos are so breathtaking. an instant mood-lift. thank you.
Thanks Shoko. The sky does most of the hard work. (And props to Tom of course, as my only contribution is to pinch his photos and stick them on here!)
What gorgeous photographs with my favourite sunset colours. One of my favourite things in life is sitting (perferable with a glass of vino in a hot country!) watching the sun set. Beautiful.
Lovely blog :)
Thanks Caroline. I’m glad you stopped by!
Such gorgeous colours. A beautiful sunset gets me every time.
