Low Tide - High Tide

We've had a series of very Low tides here followed by very High tides!   Although we are at the sea, the best place to view these changes was in Ilfracombe, the rocky coast and the harbour made the comparison so very obvious.   We went over a couple of times to capture the low and high of these and here are some of the pictures....


HIGH TIDE - SUNDAY 22nd March (around 6.30am)

Hey....has anyone else come across this.

Seems to be happening quite a bit lately.  I have blogs I follow in my sidebar, but when I click to view them, I get this message....

Permission Denied
"This blog is open to invited readers only"

It continues by having the Blog name I have tried to view ... where the http://  is in the picture above.

Then it says:

"It doesn't look like you have been invited to read this blog.  If you think that this is a mistake, you might want to contact the blog author and request an invitation"

But trying to contact the blog author as it suggests isn't possible, if I don't have their email. 

At the bottom it says  "You're signed in as .........(my email)......"

So that leaves me unable to view a blog
I've enjoyed reading and commenting on.

Any ideas on this anybody, and have any of you had the same. 

Okay, if folks don't want me to view their blog I accept that totally,
but it just seems a bit strange at the moment,
or is it just that particular blogger has decided to
close down their blog!

Paintings from this week....

Busy this week getting into ACEO cards.
What are ACEO cards?  well, basically they are small
collectable cards measuring 2½" x 3½"

I painted 2 ACEO's for the
Facebook group 30 ACEO's in 30 DAYS

and separately a fun ACEO of
William (well I couldn't leave him out could I)

we have the
SPRING theme until the 31st March

so I started with this Daffodil on
my homemade khadi paper sketchbook

 ~ both these were inspired by photos on
Paint My Photo 
Andre van de Sande & Frank Greenough respectively ~
