A place to share a few of my photographs.

Porz Scaff

Porz Scaff

Another walk with Roger and another lovely area of coastline that we haven’t been back to for some time. It’s only about 15 mins drive from us but tucked out of the way. Big black clouds were rolling in and we had Richard Hawley playing in the car, ‘There’s a Storm A’Comin’, very apt:

There’s a storm Comin’
You’d better run
There’s a storm coming
Goodbye to the sun
There’s a storm comin’
You’d better

Run boy run
You’d better run

There’s a ship that’s sailing
Out in the night
There’s a heart that’s breaking
I think it’s mine
There’s a storm comin’
You’d better

Run boy run
You’d better run.

As it turned out the rain clouds missed us but we could see someone was getting it on the horizon. Pictures of Roger to follow.

Sillon de Talbert

Foot prints

The Sillon de Talbert is a natural spit of sand and shingle some 3 kilometres long. It never becomes completely submerged and is home to numerous seabirds. It is situated on our ‘Presqu’ile Sauvage’, the unspoilt peninsula only a few klms up the road. When we first arrived here and were looking for houses we stumbled upon the Sillon one Sunday afternoon. There were many people there walking their dogs, children playing and people flying kites. The national kite flying championships used to be staged here.

Yesterday l had it all to myself. Its a great place to go when you feel you really need to get away from everything and everybody and even better when there is a big high tide and the water is lapping either side of the path. You can almost imagine you are walking on water. More pics to follow over the coming months.

Three Little Piggies

One Little Piggy....

We came across these little chaps, Gloucester Old Spot’s, while we were walking with our friend, Jan, close to May Hill. They were beautiful pigs. I couldn’t rear them and kill them. They would end up as life-long pets l am sure.

They wouldn’t stay still so it was hard to get a shot that wasn’t blurred.

Pub stop in Kersey, Suffolk

Kersey High Street

Yesterday, Christmas Eve, we took Mum out to a little village called Kersey that Jan remembered from visiting years ago. It was a typical Suffolk village hardly spoilt. We had a lovely lunch in The Bell pub next to a roaring log fire. On the way home we all sang Christmas songs and took in the snow covered fields; a real Christmas scene. Great fun.

Winter Solstice 2010

Jurasic Cliffs, Sidmouth, Devon

We decided to brave the snow and ice and get in the car to go to Sidmouth. The sun was about an hour from setting and the light was amazing. Today is the Winter Solstice also known as Mid- Winter’s Day or The Shortest Day.
