Looking back

Today’s guest picture is another from my brother Andrew’s East Anglian break. It shows the River Stour at Sudbury in Suffolk. We had another grey and occasionally rainy day here today, but the wind had dropped a little. This was a relief. It was not very warm for the time of year though, and theContinue reading “Looking back”

An early morning surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone, who has obviously arrived at Brixham in Devon, where he is visiting his oldest son. I was talking on the telephone to Mrs Tootlepedal last night when I idly remarked that I was intending to leap up at the crack of dawn and go for a cycle ride beforeContinue reading “An early morning surprise”

A noisy but quiet day

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother and sisters’ recent trip to East Anglia. My sister Mary took this charming study of the beach at Aldeburgh where the well known composer Benjamin Britten lived for many years. (In the town, not on the beach.) The forecast was quite correct, and we had a very windyContinue reading “A noisy but quiet day”

A good walk in the woods

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He spotted this heron enjoying the East Wemyss sunshine and sea earlier this week. I had to be up early in the morning, as I had to drive our two new electric bikes down to the bike shop at opening time. They were due to get theirContinue reading “A good walk in the woods”

A pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He was in East Anglia when he spotted a rare instance of an Evergreeen container ship actually floating. The house was very quiet when I woke up, and it stayed quiet until Dropscone arrived for coffee and scones. He has just come back from travelling to theContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle”

Very quiet

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Alistair. He was on holiday in Ayrshire last week when he came across this fine sight. It is Kelburn Castle. He tells me that the grounds are a very family friendly place to visit. I started the day by taking Mrs Tootlepedal to Carlisle to catch the trainContinue reading “Very quiet”

All my own work

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He and my two oldest sisters are on an East Anglian jaunt, and were in Constable country today. We had a quiet and dry day today, which got pretty sunny and warm by the afternoon (70°F, 21°C). It took some time to warm up though, and itContinue reading “All my own work”

Business and pleasure

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone. He has been acting in an official capacity at an international junior golf tournament on the east coast. He got some fine weather for his duties. I had a rather dull time today on Archive Group business, making three trips up to the High Street to see people. OnContinue reading “Business and pleasure”
