Look. No Hands

This afternoon we both collected our new specs from Boots, then drove into the dreary, drizzly forest. Along Undershore there stood an example of the broken trees on soggy terrain that currently proliferate in the woodlands. There wasn’t much sign of life until we came across cattle wandering along Sowley Lane. Owner’s tags, as always,Continue reading “Look. No Hands”

OnContinue reading “A Garden Of Delights”

Neatly piled up are fishermen’s equipment, such as ropes and chains, and what I believe are crab pots, and marker buoys. It must have been the hazy heat that led us to water for theContinue reading “Anticipation”
