      1. He’s scarcely budged all day! Says he’s aching from rowing a kajak the other day. Poor old soldier πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Off for a short walk and tea with friends soon. 6000 steps = cake, he reckons!

  1. I think I’d choose the Priory – perhaps the church green. Linden Field looks much too cold and I’d probably get my butt wet.
    Great shots here.

  2. B&W makes these images special, Tish. I’m wondering why anyone put picnic tables at such an angle, though. Seems food and people would both fall off. πŸ™‚


  3. You do indeed, and they look good in B&W. Lovely how they showcase places you have made so familiar. At Potato Point, at least on the beach, it’s rocks (with the danger of wave attack) or sand (with the ageing lack of grace in rising) or bring-your-own (and risk sinking down in the sand.)

      1. And brexit is back with another Dominic at the helm. Bojo’s instructions seem to be very clear. No deal. Then he’ll sign a deal – on his knees – with the Tramp. tsss.

      2. For some reason Ravel’s opera ‘L’enfant et les sortilΓ¨ges’ comes to mind, but will we ‘toys’ rebel against the noxious child. Seems unlikely.

      3. Well, well. I am impressed. Had never heard of it. And lyrics by Colette to top it all. French must indeed be your second language. πŸ˜‰
        Unlikely? Yes, I’m afraid. Sigh.

      4. Ravel and Colette – two of my all time favourite creators. I should try reading her in French. That would be a marvellous diversion from all the nonsense, though doubtless a bit of a struggle.

      5. You surprise every time Memsahib. πŸ‘πŸ»
        Colette? Read her ages ago. Still have a few books on my shelves. That’s an idea.

      6. I’m rather fond of her autobiographical works ‘My mother’s house’ and ‘Sido’. In fact just looking out my copy, I see it was priced 450 shillings so I must have bought it in Nairobi. Oh the strange connection of things.

      7. Don’t have those. Have Dialogues de bΓͺtes et La chatte. Bought in Ethiopia for 2.25 Ethiopian $. LOL. The connection of things. 🀣
        Now, 450 shillings? So much inflation. I bought my Gerald Durrell’s at a bookstore near or on Kimathi street for six bob a piece…
        Kwaheri sassa memsahib.
