A late walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He managed to take a very atmospheric picture as he crossed the River Derwent late on a misty afternoon recently. We had a marked change in the weather here today as we went back to a prolonged spell of rain. Luckily, not only did Margaret join usContinue reading “A late walk”

A satisfying day

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. He took this delightful ‘light and shade’ shot across the valley from Warbla yesterday while he was having a late afternoon stroll with his wife, Leila. We had another very pleasant day here today as far as the weather went, and the events of the dayContinue reading “A satisfying day”

A choir contrast

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He has been absent from the guest picture slot for a while, and regular readers may be wondering if the sun has stopped shining in East Wemyss. It has not. This was dawn over the Firth of Forth yesterday. We had a lovely sunny day here today.Continue reading “A choir contrast”

Flat calm

Today’s guest picture comes from my walking friend Mark. His dog Henry took him up to the top of Warbla in yesterday’s strong winds. Mark reckons that judging by how flat Henry’s ears were, the wind must have been blowing at 50 mph. Henry thought that it was fun. After two days of continuous strongContinue reading “Flat calm”

Plenty of sound and fury

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He came across what looks like a very superior bug hotel in the grounds of Nottingham University. After another noisy night here, where the roaring of the wind made it hard to sleep, we got another very windy and grey day today. On the plus side, itContinue reading “Plenty of sound and fury”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He was sitting at the window of a cafe in Longtown counting the number of wheels on a passing wagon’s trailer as one does (16 as it happens) when he was struck by this coat of arms on the pull down side of another passing vehicle. ThereContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

Sunshine and seaside

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was sitting outside a cafe beside the Thames yesterday when she got an unexpected treat. We got an unusual treat here today in the shape of a sunny day. To add to the pleasure of the day, it wasn’t even very cold in the morning, whichContinue reading “Sunshine and seaside”

Yet more rain and another wet walk

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It is a riposte to Mary’s painted swan picture yesterday. It was seen in a shop window. The forecast was for a really horrible day so I was quite pleased that was merely a nasty wet day with some dry spells. Mrs Tootlepedal wasn’t pleased at all,Continue reading “Yet more rain and another wet walk”

More rain but time for a walk too

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She and my brother Andrew are trying to match each other with swan pictures at the moment. This was Mary’s original effort today. We were woken by some very heavy rain, so after breakfast I walked down to the park bridge in a light drizzle to seeContinue reading “More rain but time for a walk too”
