Fade to grey again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce. He is on a family visit to Sheffield and came across the Cobweb bridge on the Five Weirs Walk. After our brief sunny interlude, we were back to grey today. Very grey. It was quite warm though and it wasn’t raining so Mrs Tootlepedal was able toContinue reading “Fade to grey again”

Shorter and duller

Today’s guest picture is yesterday’s sunset from East Wemyss. Our son Tony sends us these just to make us envious. He succeeds. We had another fairly chilly, fairly grey day here today, but it wasn’t foggy and it wasn’t freezing so we didn’t complain. I walked up to have coffee with Sandy, and found himContinue reading “Shorter and duller”

A pedal and a tootle

Today’s guest picture is the third and last from Venetia’s recent walk. As well as the bridge and the lime kiln, she visited this attractive little harbour. Looking at the forecast a few days ago, it seemed that today would be the best day of the week for a pedal. As it turned out, yesterdayContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle”

Showers

Today’s guest picture from sunny East Wemyss, much needed on another generally gloomy day here, shows one of Tony’s dogs playing ‘King of the Castle’. We woke to heavy showers, and were quite pleased when a long enough gap in the weather appeared not only to let us cycle to church to sing in theContinue reading “Showers”

Not playing around

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Caroline’s recent sunny visit to her park in Southsea just beside the sea. The weather continues to be odd. From early morning to late in the evening as I wrote this, the temperature has stayed between 14°C and 18°C, and is is warmer now at nine o’clockContinue reading “Not playing around”

A stay at home day

Today’s guest picture is a second from my brother Andrew’s trip to King’s Lynn. He passed through Peterborough on his way, and sent me another nice bridge shot. I had a very uneventful time here today where it was cool under grey clouds for the most part. There was a little burst of sunshine inContinue reading “A stay at home day”

Suspense

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony who, after his otter yesterday, met an European eagle owl today. It is very exciting living in East Wemyss. We had a calm and cloudy day here today, but we didn’t get wet when we cycled to church this week. We had an extremely select choir ofContinue reading “Suspense”

A pedal and a tootle!

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who was beside the Tarras Water today. I expect that this golden-ringed dragonfly was having a rest as it was obviously tired. We had another mostly grey but dry day here today, still a bit cool for the time of the year, but there was nothing toContinue reading “A pedal and a tootle!”

Back to the rain again

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin. He visited the Linlithgow canal basin with a group of walking friends today. In a moment of madness yesterday evening, I said that I would sleep in the tent overnight, and being too ashamed to back out, I did just that. Rather against my expectations, I hadContinue reading “Back to the rain again”

No wonder

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony in East Wemyss. He saw this buzzard in a tree while walking his dogs a day or two ago. The forecasters had been pretty certain that we would get a good fall of snow today and I was looking forward to being able to have a winterContinue reading “No wonder”
