Yellow Yacht Yonder

A walk over the Haverigg sand dunes which at this time of the year are ablaze with yellow flowers but I spotted one lone plant 
Limnanthes douglasii
I did not expect to see, a poached egg plant.  It must have seeded from a garden escapee, it is not a native plant although once planted in an English garden they are prolific.  I always thought they liked moist soil but here they are happily growing in sand
And enjoying the sun
The tide had ebbed and we walked to where the River Lazy joins the sea  and what do I spy but a yellow yacht in the distance


 high and dry on the sand yonder.  We walk on north returning to the sand dunes and
later when on the top gaze towards the lighthouse and  see the yellow yacht beginning to float although the tide 
still had a way to come in, we waited no longer as there was an appointment with an ice-cream

An entry to ABC Wednesday - a journey through the alphabet nearing the end (of this round).  I must have been so overexcited about that fact that I thought today was Tuesday and now realise my error, still Monday. Gosh almost like having a longer week.  It makes a change for me to be ahead of time, I'm a waiting for the deadline to appear kind of person.

What a lovely walk...I truly enjoyed this and what a sight to see that yellow yacht rising with the water.

I'd rather have a yacht than a submarine - lovely that you should happen upon this one.

Ah, makes me Yearn to be there! The poached egg flower is such a cheery sight, we don't see those around here.
