Zigzagging on the beach

Well, I’ve just discovered my last post was on 20th July! How time flies when life throws other things at you! So I decided it was high time I allowed myself the luxury of plonking myself down in front of the computer (now running the latest OS- long story, until that gets replaced ere long),  and sifting through some archives to find a zigzag or two.

This week’s Photo Challenge over at WordPress is Zigzag. I have chosen a couple of images from my travels taken on beaches some years ago. I think each, in it’s way, illustrates the theme.

First up, a monochrome shot of groynes at a very pebble-filled beach in Devon, which have long since disappeared. I think this was Seaton (or could it have been Sidmouth?):


And the zigzag lines of some beach huts at Lyme Regis, Dorset:


Take a look at more examples here.


  1. Great entry! Now why do I recognize Lyme Regis so well…the name? I’m sure it was in a renowned novel and what comes to my mind is “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” Could it be that one? Read it many years ago and loved the atmosphere in it…but was very disappointed in its ending. Am I right?

  2. Groynes? Is that what they’re called? I never knew! There are some good ones at Hunstanton in Norfolk, I remember. I always like the look of them. And beach huts too 🙂
    Glad you’re ok, Sue.

  3. Love the little beach huts!

  4. Whitstable is good for groynes and beach huts. I love beach huts 🙂

  5. Wonderful zig and zag this week. I really like both of these photos.

  6. Perfect choices Sue – I confess I am struggling to come up with something.

    • Thanks, Robin… as I said in my reply to Cee, I had instantly thought of the first image for this. Good luck for finding inspiration!

    Ah love the beach huts … I’ve obviously been out of season as have never seen any of them being used !

  8. You’ve made me feel old…..
    Over the last few years that’s what I’ve noticed most…
    Groins disappearing……….

    Great artistic eye as always. Makes me a little homesick seeing the British beach!
