Stormy Saturday

record wind speeds

Miss E and I went down to Lulworth Cove to see what the 50mph winds were doing to the sea

It was dramatic!

Windows

On the first Tuesday of each month we meet here to share photos of windows we have spotted. There have been some fascinating entries, I’m really enjoying seeing them. Recent or archive posts are all welcome, just leave a link in the comments.

On a recent walk to the tiny wooden St Catherine’s Chapel, Holworth:

as we sat on the grass we were serenaded by what I think was a Goldfinch in the weather-beaten trees. We couldn’t see the bird well enough to identify it, but I have a wonderful free App called ‘Chirp’ that has taught me to identify birdsong and I checked it with that – what do you think? Song of a Goldfinch?

 

On the path down to the beach we noticed that this little cottage had been spruced up with new windows and a new thatched roof, shame they haven’t removed the horrid pebbledash on the walls.thatch

I’m looking forward to seeing a window on your piece of the world. 🙂

Silly Saturday

Friends you can be silly with are precious.

The feet on the left have trekked in the Himalaya.

The feet on the right have walked the Camino.

Last week they walked a few miles together to get to the beach for a swim.

Celebrating the joy of friendship, good health and sunshine.
