Puddle jumping

Today’s guest post comes from Mary Jo in snowy, slushy Manitoba. In the midst of chilly weather, it brings back happy memories for her and recalls a sunny day on holiday last year in New Zealand, showing the ocean view from her table at Fleur’s in Moeraki, NZ. She tells me that the view wasContinue reading “Puddle jumping”

Down and out

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. It just goes to show that if sometimes the sun doesn’t shine round East Wemyss, it comes back quickly. The temperature was well down this morning here, but I still got out for a walk in the afternoon so I wasn’t complaining (too much) It was -6°CContinue reading “Down and out”

End of the spell

Ave atque vale (or hail in the vale)

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He came upon this bridge over the River Dove when he was out with his walking group.  He points out that it is  unusual in that the later two lane bridge, to save costs, has been built on top of the old medieval one lane one. We hadContinue reading “Ave atque vale (or hail in the vale)”
