Driving ahead

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary. She was able to spot Mr Grumpy’s London cousin with no difficulty on her walk today. It was another of those days here when it was quite hard to see anything because of the gloomy weather, but it wasn’t raining and once again it was quite calm.Continue reading “Driving ahead”

Round and round today

Today’s guest picture is another from that demi-paradise, East Wemyss. I have used a lot of our son Tony’s pictures as guest pictures of the day but if he keeps sending me pictures like this one which he sent today, I will probably use a lot more. We had another chilly but calm day hereContinue reading “Round and round today”

Lying low

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows the Exeter Bridge across the River Derwent in Derby. It was built in 1929. I always enjoy a picture where I get two bridges for the price of one. We had a cold and grey morning with occasional light rain, and a cold and greyContinue reading “Lying low”

Head in the clouds

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. It shows that while we may have sunrises in Langholm, he can match them with sunsets in Derby. If the sun did indeed rise over Langholm this morning, we didn’t see it. We were covered in mist. After breakfast, I decided to drive up to the WhiteContinue reading “Head in the clouds”

I got the worm

Today’s guest picture comes from my friend Simon from Canonbie. His work has taken him to Athens where he found that they have got the builders in. The forecast suggested that if I wanted to get any sort of bike ride in today, I would need to be up and about promptly. I was upContinue reading “I got the worm”

Decidedly damp

Today’s guest picture comes from Gunta in Oregon, who kindly responded to a hinted need, and shows that they have some seriously destructive forestry practices there too….but on a bigger scale than ours. The impressive photo was taken by Eric with a drone. After yesterday’s brilliant sunshine, we got wall to wall cloud today, withContinue reading “Decidedly damp”

Strange objects

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew. Our sister Susan is visiting him at the moment and he introduced her to the chain ferry over the River Soar. She enjoyed it a lot as you can see. We had another fine day here after another cold morning. The temperature was low enough to putContinue reading “Strange objects”

Mostly indoors

Today’s tall and thin guest picture comes from my sister Mary who passed this tall and thin pub a few days ago. My sister Susan had a meal in it last year and wrote about it in her post, which you can find here. We have had generally pretty poor weather since the start ofContinue reading “Mostly indoors”

Progress

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Mary who has been enjoying her walks up to Kenwood recently. She had this fine view of the grounds on Wednesday. We had a cool, grey morning here today, definitely feeling like autumn a lot more than like late summer. It stayed dry though, but with the temperatureContinue reading “Progress”

Blowing in the wind

Today’s scenic guest picture comes from a walk near Nottingham that my brother Andrew undertook today in some very brisk winds. There was some heavy rain here overnight, and it was wet and windy when we got up. Generally speaking, the day didn’t get any better as it went on. It was quite warm thoughContinue reading “Blowing in the wind”
