James, of Peacock Computers, visited to examine the iMac, and took it away to restore it to working order. In anticipation of the Apple’s removal, I had scanned a set of photographic prints from May 1993 onto the Windows laptop. We had also thought the weather would be bad this afternoon and I would be able to use these to illustrate today’s post. In the event, the sun shone and the winds were high enough, at more than 50 m.p.h. to suggest a trip into the forest. The 1993 set will appear tomorrow.
A short distance outside East End cattle grazed on a hillside that was topped by an oak tree sporting a car tyre.
The little falabella pony which
sometimes joins its cousins outside St Leonard’s Grange,
spent its time crossing from one side of the road to the other.
Another just stayed in the road.
When we reached this point, one of the ruins of the granary was nicely silhouetted
against the lowering sun, bestowing a sepia tone.
We continued along the road, intending to return for sunset. Pheasants chased each other across the lanes and the autumnal fields.
On our return golden streaks stretched along the sky.
We took a diversion down Tanners Lane on our journey home. Those streaks had deepened over the Isle of Wight.
The winds pressed so strongly against the car door that it felt as if it was close to a wall. Just one other vehicle was parked in front of us. Perhaps it belonged to the windsurfer
who skimmed over the choppiest waves we have ever seen there,
direction, and almost blown away.
This evening we dined on Jackie;s gorgeously spicy chilli con carne, with her most savoury rice wearing an omelette jacket. She drank Hoegaarden and I drank Mendoza Parra Alta malbec 2016.
