We are fortunate that Giles, now our oldest friend, lives nearby. He made a welcome visit this morning.

This afternoon, Jackie took me for a drive, to Keyhaven and its environs.

At high tide, with a stiff breeze, the water in the harbour was quite choppy.

Hurst Spit bore its usual silhouetted figures. It was not until some members descended the shingle slope that I could make out the baby being carried.

Two men approached and passed a couple holding hands.

Cyclist, figures on Hurst Spit

A cyclist patiently passed our parked car as I poked my camera through the open passenger seat window.

Builder and sculpture

The Solent Grange entrance to Carrington Park holiday homes is being embellished by the most pretentious sculptures, including massive white lions. I will have to wait until I am more mobile to do this justice. In the meantime the gentleman on the wall was happy to be photographed. What, we wondered, was stuffed into the folds of this figure’s dress?

This evening we dined on another excellent takeaway meal from Forest Tandoori. After onion bahjis, I enjoyed a lamb jalfrezi and special fried rice, while Jackie chose a chicken biriani. I drank sparkling water and Mrs Knight drank Hoegaarden.

  3. The statue woman looks like she’s gesturing “go away” to the man. Perhaps they have a history. 😉
    How nice that you’re oldest friend could come for a visit.
    Wonderful photos, Derrick.

  4. My first thought was, what the heck! Derrick and Jackie can’t be doing that to their garden. Phew! What a relief to find out that you weren’t. 😉

  5. I found your Hurst Spit photos very intriguing and interesting, the silhouetting effect that you captured gave the pictures a mysterious aura.

  6. Enjoyed your pics Derrick, not sure if that statue is actually there for a reason or just presentation.
    Good to hear you are getting out and about as much as before mate.
    Cheers.
