Diverted by cows

Today’s scenic guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Although it looks peaceful enough, he tells me that the wind was blowing so strongly that he literally had to hold on to his hat as he crossed the stream. We had quite a windy day here too, and it was grey and occasionally rainy. IContinue reading “Diverted by cows”

I would have loved cars like this when I was young but now they just look difficult to get in to and impossible to get out of. We had aContinue reading “Very quiet”
