Our old friend Giles came to lunch. His importance is not just that he is one of my oldest friends, but that he shares memories from the first time Jackie and I were married. We enjoyed a couple of hours of conversation before he left.
Later, we drove out to the forest in a last minute attempt to catch the sunset. We were a little late for that, but enjoyed the skies soon afterwards.
By the time I had emerged from the car at Goatspen, just outside Holmsley, the bird that had been perched atop a tree took off and aimed for another
where it took up residence with a companion. The recent winds have seen off the last of the leaves.
As can be seen here,
clear skies at dusk retain a touch of the sun, especially when clouds take on a mountainous form.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s excellent chilli con carne with egg savoury rice. I drank more of the malbec.
