A welcome surprise after a pedal

Today’s guest picture comes from our neighbour Liz, who is down in the south at the moment. She visited East Carlton Park near Corby and came across this fine specimen. It made me think of Christmas for some reason. After several windy days, we had a much calmer day here today with the promise ofContinue reading “A welcome surprise after a pedal”

Off to see the sea

Today’s guest picture is another from Mary Jo’s trip to New Zealand.  It shows South Taranaki Bight, a fierce place, Mary Jo says.  She is back in Canada and having to spend a fortnight ‘self isolating’ on her return to the country. We were promised a dry day and we got one so that wasContinue reading “Off to see the sea”

Mrs Tootlepedal goes too far

Today’s guest picture comes from former Archive Group member Ken, who is now over in the north east.  He sent me this picture of a very special K4 kiosk, one of only 50 introduced in 1927.  They combined a telephone kiosk with a coin operated stamp vending machine and a post box.  This one isContinue reading “Mrs Tootlepedal goes too far”

Beside the sea

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin who was in California recently seeing his son and grandchildren when he visited the Capitola Pier. We had another grey morning here with the occasional threat of drizzle which didn’t come to much.  It was enough though to persuade me that coffee and a tricky  crossword andContinue reading “Beside the sea”

A change of plan

Today’s guest picture is another from Venetia’s visit to the Taunton Flower show.  They really know how to enjoy a good time there. Unfortunately, Sandy’s new bike did not arrive on schedule so with nothing better to do, I set out on a solo ride, hoping that the good weather that had greeted the dayContinue reading “A change of plan”

Acting my age

Today’s guest picture comes from our son Tony.  When I looked back at his pictures from Kirkcaldy’s Highland Games on the beach, I saw that as well as cyclists and runners, they had these curious characters too. It was the day of the wires in our garden and luckily, the wire hangers had a fineContinue reading “Acting my age”

Short of both sunshine and an instant cure

Today’s guest picture is another look at the supersized crazy golf course in Nottingham.  My brother Andrew passed it on his way to classes at the university. I was hoping for a bright day today so that I could take some seaside picture when I went to visit my physio who lives on the SolwayContinue reading “Short of both sunshine and an instant cure”

Stuck in treacle

Today’s guest picture is my final offering from Venetia’s American trip and shows more wildlife from Yellowstone.  This time it is a mule deer. The forecast was for a dry sunny day here today and I had hopes of a decent cycle ride but the good weather came with a frosty morning so I hadContinue reading “Stuck in treacle”

A day of armless fun

Today’s guest picture is another from my sister Mary’s walk along the Thames.  She saw these two unusual boats in a dock near Tower Bridge.  Not the usual rich people’s yachts. I have a wonderfully shiny bruise on my arm so I thought it might be a good plan to have a very quiet morning. Continue reading “A day of armless fun”

Another song cycle day

The guest picture of the day comes courtesy of Mary Jo from Manitoba who asked her friend Lucie to send me this really stunning picture of a bison, with which Lucie had a close encounter in Riding Mountain National Park. The forecast shows a lot of rain showers coming our way over the next weekContinue reading “Another song cycle day”
