We are still enjoying temperatures in double figures, and the rain was easier today.
This morning we left a large photographic print for mounting with 4Most Framing in Old Milton. We returned home via Barton on Sea where
the waves were choppy and a layer of spray around the dimly visible Isle of Wight gave it the appearance of a Hovercraft skimming over the surface of the water.
The weather was still mild enough for walkers to venture onto the shore down below the crumbling cliff.
This afternoon we brought our Christmas decorations downstairs and prepared a space for the tree which still occupies the boot of the car.
Jackie picked a precocious hellebore bloom and placed it in a little brown Victorian cream jug gathered by Matthew during our mudlarking days.
Later, she trailed a string of coloured lights along the front garden trellis.
The Christmas lights at Lymington, where we dined at Lal Quilla, were inviting, but I forgot my camera. Although it is several months since we last visited the restaurant we received our usual warm welcome and excellent meals with Kingfisher beer.
