Late this afternoon, Jackie drove the three of us to Mudeford.

A cyclist ambled along the shore of the harbour where

kayakers, kite surfers, and sailboarders made good use of the choppy waters and the stiff breeze.

Leisurely kite flying took place on the grassy bank,

from which a mother and daughter dragged their inflated boat, pushed it into the water, scrambled in, and set off, passing a waterlogged rowing boat, paddles waving.

Wet suits and life jackets hung on and beside the van transporting a group of paddle boarders.

Back at home we dined on Jackie’s splendid spicy pasta arrabbiata, followed by bread and butter pudding and cream, with which Elizabeth and I drank DiMarco Primitivo Puglia 2015. The Culinary Queen had finished her Hoegaarden on the patio beforehand.

  1. It looks like a lovely day. Wonderful photos, Derrick. I’m with the others on that cyclist, especially once I enlarged it. I also like the bright red accents in the other black/grey photos. Dinner sounds delicious! πŸ™‚

  2. I think the wind surfer photo on the right is great: it’s a predominately grey photo, but the sail is a bright pop of colour.

  3. What a beautiful day! and what fun everyone was having, in so many different ways! πŸ™‚
    The first photo is so great! I love the 2nd photo, too! πŸ™‚
    Glad you and the gals had a nice day!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚

  4. You have a knack for taking pictures at the right moment and they actually connect the dots in your stories. This is a new style of writing I have come across and really liked. Kudos to you buddy !
