It was a cold and frosty Boxing Day.....

Just got back from Christmas at my Mum's - I took my (very basic) digital camera but didn't think about a spare memory card so.....

The journey down was fine - cold - but the trains were on time - but still very snowy.....
  
 This is the vineyard at Dorking at the foot of Boxhill - come autumn they will be bursting with grapes again...
 Boxing Day - heavy frost in Mum's garden.... and this was 10.30.... it stayed all day.

The deserted beach (Pagham) - more or less had it to myself - even the beach was frosty (see pics on "stampingbyh"
The frost doesn't really show up, but the wood here (it's the launchway for the yachts at Pagham yacht club) was very frosty - and so were the pebbles!!  I can't ever remember seeing frost on the beach here before....  I am sure it has been, just I haven't been there....
 Pagham Pram Race - an annual Boxing Day pub crawl round Pagham..... never had a camera with me before...

 Sadly the memory card was full by now, missed the best "pram" too - a stage coach with cowboys and indians.....
