Going full circle

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He took his son Nick on a ten mile walk up as many hills as he could find.  Nick is going on a Nepal trek soon and needed some practice.  Here is Nick on Ecton Hill at 1211ft. My morning walk to the (corner) shop once againContinue reading “Going full circle”

A tootle but no pedal

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s canal walk with my sister Mary.  I like a bridge with legs. After a chilly night, we had a chilly morning followed by a chilly afternoon.  Sandy, who dropped in for a coffee told me that his thermometer showed an overnight low of -7°C which is unusually coldContinue reading “A tootle but no pedal”

Hidden delight

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Bruce who is visiting the Glasgow area and found himself at the start of the West Highland way in Milngavie.  He is not going to walk it though as it is 96 miles long. I have always believed that the autumn equinox came on the 21st of SeptemberContinue reading “Hidden delight”

Practice makes nearly perfect

Today’s guest picture comes from my sister Susan who spotted this.  She tells me that she had not touched a drop. We had a sunny day from dawn until dusk and the garden was once again filled with butterflies… …but I let them get on in peace today and when I wasn’t having coffee andContinue reading “Practice makes nearly perfect”

Hot foot

Today’s guest picture comes from my brother Andrew.  He is visiting Aranjuez in Spain.  It is 30 mins from Madrid and is a town built around a Royal Palace.  His picture shows one of the rooms in the so called ‘Labourer’s House’.  I don’t think that the labourer lives there any more. We had aContinue reading “Hot foot”

Talking to my legs

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin.  He is visiting his son in California where he was impressed to see that every other parking space at his son’s place of work had an electric charging point.. We had an unusual day here today in that it didn’t rain at all.  People were walking roundContinue reading “Talking to my legs”

Sunshine sandwich

Today’s guest picture is a second from my brother’s trip to Tamworth.  As well as the colourful gardens, he enjoyed the contrast between the Tamworth’s ancient bridge and the modern buildings behind it. We woke up to sunshine.  It was hard to believe but it was undoubtedly there.  After breakfast, I went out into theContinue reading “Sunshine sandwich”

Feeling the heat

Today’s guest picture comes from Venetia who visited the very impressive flight of locks at Caen Hill on the Kennet and Avon canal. We had another fine and sunny day today, with the temperatures well up into the mid twenties (80F) so it was quite pleasant to go into the cool of the church toContinue reading “Feeling the heat”

Opening move

Today’s guest picture comes from Fiona, my Newcastle correspondent.  She has been walking on Cocklawburn beach where the sharp eyed may spy very small fossils. We had another bright and sunny day here today but out of the sun, it was pretty chilly with the thermometer below zero when we woke up and staying firmlyContinue reading “Opening move”

Wrongfooted

Today’s guest picture was sent to me by Dropscone.  He claimed it shows a golf course near Glasgow but in fact it shows a path to a lighthouse on Islay.  If he has a picture of the actual lighthouse, I hope that he sends it to me. I was completely wrong footed by the forecastContinue reading “Wrongfooted”
