Invasion

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. He found himself on the shores of the Humber estuary today and took this fine pictures of the famous bridge just to please me. We were up and about quite smartly today as we were volunteering for the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve again. We didn’t have toContinue reading “Invasion”

A fairly dull day

Today’s picture comes from our younger son Alistair. He came across this very fine fungus last week. We had a marked change in the weather here today, with some very heavy but short showers interrupting a grey and damp day. Luckily, the early rain had stopped by the time that I walked up to theContinue reading “A fairly dull day”

Talking not walking

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony. He was up early enough a couple of days ago to see this sun rise in East Wemyss. After the excitements of yesterday, we had a quiet day at home today. It was not dull though. In the morning, we were visited by Tom Elliot, my SouthContinue reading “Talking not walking”

A day of two halves

Today’s cheerful guest picture, taken by a co-operative member of staff, shows my three sisters, Mary, Susan and Caroline, meeting in a cafe in Chichester last week. We woke up to a disappointingly wet and chilly morning here today. As a result we drove the short distance to church, but on the bright side, theContinue reading “A day of two halves”

Staying in

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. His walking group followed a path through the middle of a field today. It looks odd but it must be an old right of way. They are not trampling crops. We found ourselves a little tired here today after the departure of Matilda and her parents yesterday.Continue reading “Staying in”

A good suggestion

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who visited St Paul’s Cathedral in London today. The sky was blue when we woke up and the sun was out, but as the temperature had been at 2°C (36°F) at six o’clock, it wasn’t very warm. An occasionally gusty wind did nothing to make the dayContinue reading “A good suggestion”

Winding down today

Today’s guest picture comes from East Wemyss, the sunshine capital of the world, where our son Tony was out and about early enough to catch the sunrise yesterday. We had another fine day here today, but the northerly wind was a bit stronger so naturally, it felt a bit cooler. Between the wind, slightly tiredContinue reading “Winding down today”

Fine walking and three zooms

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony He took an unwanted old metal watering can away with him when he went home after his visit yesterday, and it has now been repurposed, as they say these days. We had another of those here and there mornings with occasional light drizzle but there were plentyContinue reading “Fine walking and three zooms”

A welcome return

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  He noticed a small water wheel which has been installed not far from his house.  It has a helpful explanatory diagram drawn on the side of its hut.  It is providing power for some lights on a bridge. Just how lucky the agricultural show was to getContinue reading “A welcome return”

Going nuts

Today’s guest picture comes from Dropscone’s Highland holiday.  He went to Fraserburgh and saw not one but two lighthouses. It was another tedious morning with lots of rain showers and just enough gaps between them to make you think that they might be stopping….but they didn’t. After killing time to a background of Beatles musicContinue reading “Going nuts”
