Jackie cut my hair after lunch. Then we enjoyed a late afternoon forest drive.
Swans, casting long shadows, with a group of mallards, which took to flight upon my arrival, wandered across the sward at Beaulieu River.
At East End a donkey and foal clipped a hedge, while a burnished pony watched the traffic passing by.
The lowering sun was reflected along with trees in a pool beside Exbury Road.
The tide was out. at Lepe where I focussed on the Isle of Wight and a container vessel on the horizon between Southampton and the island; while
Jackie photographed a chicken in a field.
We turned down Lower Pennington Lane in order to catch the sunset on the way home.
Here the Assistant Photographer photographed a deer and three geese.
I photographed a skein of geese over head, and others enhancing the sunset.
These shots are Jackie’s.
This evening we dined on more of the Culinary Queen’s wholesome cottage pie with fresh carrots, cabbage, and runner beans. Mrs Knight drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Douro.
