Christmas Is Coming

Becky had stayed over yesterday evening in order to drive me to Lymington Market to buy some presents which cannot yet be named.

Many others thronged the High Street with no possible social distancing and not always wearing masks. I managed to buy most of what I had come for and take a few photographs of stalls I could get near.

A Nativity scene graced the Children’s Charity window.

These are samples of the stalls.

After lunch we enjoyed a happy conversation until, just before sunset, our daughter set off home for Southbourne.

We then took a short drive hoping to catch the last of the light. The sunset was rather uninspired.

On Everton Road we stopped and chatted with Robert Gill as I photographed his Christmas display. I told him I had been posting pictures of his scarecrows for some years and was happy to give him the link.

This evening we dined on more of Hordle Chinese Take Away’s tasty dishes with which Jackie drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Malbec.
