The surrounding area was a paradise for birds, and a walker's paradise too.
I took my new pink shoes
but they didn't want to go out here
so they stayed in the cottage, although we didn't.
Someone wasn't too happy about the weather.
We were driving along a modern road when we suddenly came to this, a bit of a surprise, was it legal?
We expected to see highwaymen.
The cheerful man who came out of his cottage to collect the toll could have come from the 16th century himself.
We drove our car over the rickety, slippery wooden bridge. Maybe it was solid concrete underneath????
These people came on holiday with us and wanted to take a selfie for the blog.
When we left home our garden was neat and tidy, the best it has ever been, with the flowers and vegetables standing up neatly.When we came back the garden had turned into an Amazonian jungle.
Because this is normally an art blog, here is a little bit of art to finish.
Last month I exhibited a couple of pictures in a group art exhibition and we were asked to make a 6 x 4 inch postcard to be included on a poster. The instructions were to take no longer than two (!) minutes to make the postcard.
This was mine, made in 20 minutes.
and here it is inverted.
I hope you enjoyed your little quiet tour.
