A day of unrest

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in sunny East Wemyss. Three days ago, his sun had unusual sparkle. We needed a guest picture with sparkle because after a gloomy day yesterday, we had another fairly gloomy day today. It was dry and warmer than it has been lately, and it stayed above freezingContinue reading “A day of unrest”

A welcome break

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He visited a local park today and found a popular bridge. I checked the rain gauge after breakfast and saw that it was registering two inches of rain from the past two days. This total was added to today as we had another day of wet andContinue reading “A welcome break”

A drop of golden sun

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who felt that he could prove that East Wemyss has fine trees as well as seemingly eternal sunshine.

We had a generally sunny and cheerful day here today; cheerful that was as longContinue reading “Just time for a stroll”

We could hear the rain pounding down overnight so it was no surprise to wake up to a dullContinue reading “A change in the weather”

Yet more pedalling and tootling

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Bruce who visited Talkin Tarn yesterday with his wife Lesley.  They were surprised to see that the very cold weather had not put the rowers off. Our day started with a light snow shower but although it lay as it fell, it had soon disappeared and we wereContinue reading “Yet more pedalling and tootling”

A fond farewell

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew’s visit to Manchester recently.  He found this wonderful 1941 railway bridge across the ship canal there.  It is confined to walkers and cyclists these days, he tells me. After a wet and windy night, we had another rather grey morning today, made greyer by the fact thatContinue reading “A fond farewell”
