A windmill on my mind

Today’s guest picture comes from our friend Gavin. He found the road along the river just past Skippers Bridge thoroughly blocked this morning. We had had another inch of rain overnight so perhaps this collapse was not entirely unexpected. Fallen trees and landslips seem to have become quite common round here. Gavin says that theContinue reading “A windmill on my mind”

Laid back

Today’s guest picture comes from one of my brother Andrew’s recent walks.  He was rather surprised to find a woolly mammoth looking at him over a wall. I had a day of mostly sitting down today although I did get about enough to mow the front lawn and do some deadheading. We started off withContinue reading “Laid back”

Another hot, sunny day in the south led us to have a second go at visiting Glastonbury Tor.  Once again the official car park remained elusive but we found a space in a building lot and setContinue reading “Tor-ists”
