One of Aaron’s tasks this morning was to erect a wooden arch to stand between the garden and the back drive. He assembled and positioned it in less than an hour. We could have done with him yesterday. He had earned his break.

This afternoon we attended a small family party to give nephew Anthony a good send-off for his trip to Auckland. His parents are Jackie’s sister Shelly and her husband, Ron. This was a very enjoyable occasion with much convivial conversation. Of the tempting assortment of dishes Shelly produced, my choice was her splendid chicken curry with boiled rice, followed by lemon meringue and fruit. I drank Abbot ale.

On our return home we took a diversion to Mudeford just in time to catch the sunset, along with squawking, wading, birds.

We were in need of no further sustenance this evening.

  1. Love that first shot with the sun setting on the sea and the birds and the people…… Also like the one that includes the cottages with all the poles sticking up – what are they? I thought they might be sailboat masts, but I see no signs of sailboats….. Good luck to your nephew in Auckland!

  2. Beautiful photos, Derrick! πŸ™‚ And how wonderful to spend time with family!
    Aaron did a superb job! Love that arch!
    Your sea birds at sunset photos are so beautiful, they brought tears to my eyes. I used to live near the Pacific ocean. And I love the ocean, the sea life, the sea birds, etc.!
    HUGS!!! πŸ™‚
