A tootle and a pedal…and a walk…and a scone

Today”s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  Looking through my files I see that I didn’t use this one from his highland holiday earlier in the year.  I thought that it should have gone in then so I have put it in now. It shows keen canoeists in Plockton. We had a pleasant andContinue reading “A tootle and a pedal…and a walk…and a scone”

Going wild

Today’s guest picture shows a feature of the Sheffield Peace Gardens. They were seen by Bruce on a recent stay in the city. Today started very oddly when I woke up realising that I had just had a good night’s sleep.  This was so unusual that it took me until Dropscone arrived with Friday treacle sconesContinue reading “Going wild”

An eponymous day with added extra

Today’s guest picture comes from Canada.  Lucie, who sent it to me, is scratching her head as to why she can’t find people anxious to share a cup of tea with her on her patio when there are such comfortable looking cushions to sit on. At least Lucie has had some sunshine.  We got anotherContinue reading “An eponymous day with added extra”

Conversations

The guest picture of the day is a curious sculpture of a bicycle on a  railway line which Bruce encountered on his recent Annan walk. We had a splendidly sunny day today but from a cycling point of view, it wasn’t as useful as it might have been as it was also very cold forContinue reading “Conversations”

Surrounded by butterflies

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew and shows an 18th Century mill near Derby and the dam that was built to provide it with water. (I am in the market for new guest pictures) I had a quiet morning today and was content to potter about indoors for the most part in spiteContinue reading “Surrounded by butterflies”

A standard Sunday cycle ride (at the wrong time)

Today’s guest picture comes from my Somerset correspondent, Venetia who has been up to town where she visited the newish Design Museum in Holland Park with my sister Mary.  I wonder if the very large sign reflects a lack of confidence that the visitors will know where they are. I started the day by lookingContinue reading “A standard Sunday cycle ride (at the wrong time)”

A song and a dance

Today’s guest picture comes from Mary Jo, my Manitoba correspondent, and indicates that perhaps I should stop complaining about the weather here. In fact, we had a pretty good day here today with lots of sunshine in the morning and early afternoon.  This left me frustrated again by not being able to cycle on suchContinue reading “A song and a dance”

Water under the bridge(s)

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone, who has recently been playing golf in Girona in Spain.  Clearly, there was no rain in Spain while he was there. There was no rain here today either but not quite as much sun as Dropscone has been enjoying. I had to take the car to the garage earlyContinue reading “Water under the bridge(s)”

An outing

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother who has recently visited Whitby and took this excellent picture of the town. We were promised a nice day today and although it had rained again over night, it wasn’t a bad morning even though it was cloudy and rather chilly again.  I was in no rush toContinue reading “An outing”

A pleasant surprise

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who was walking along the Thames last week when she came to Tower Bridge at low tide. We had another day of sunshine and showers here today but in an improvement on yesterday, there was more sunshine and less rain and when the rain came, it cameContinue reading “A pleasant surprise”
