Burnmouth is a small village situated between, Berwick-upon-tweed to the south and Eyemouth to the north, on the East coast of the Scottish Borders.

The harbour and village are enclosed by cliffs on one side and the North Sea on the other. A few fishing boats left the harbour on their morning trip while I was doing some sketches and notes but otherwise not that many boats in what must have been a busy harbour in the not so distant past.

A bright morning light reflecting of the wet beach at the tide slow goes out leaving a collection of interesting boats beached amongst the seaweed.
