This afternoon our drive began at Keyhaven.
From the hill above the village we had a clear view across The Solent to the Isle of Wight. The mainland buildings are in the foreground. A solitary yacht passes the island.
At the bottom of the slope a field of black sheep introduced their very young lambs to life. Just two of the offspring were white.
A young cock pheasant face-off was under way at East End. Quite suddenly the more timid of the two turned and disappeared into the moorland,
leaving the victor to strut his stuff.
Casper, at East Boldre, enjoyed his own observation grill.
This evening we dined on Tesco’s finest fish pie; Jackie’s even finer piquant cauliflower cheese; crunchy carrots; tender peas and green beans. We both drank New Zealand’s The Quintet 2017.
