Nice walk around the track next door…

before the rains came! You can see how high the Mighty River Drone has been….and I think the holes in the bank are water vole holes…

Salisbury: a few days away there

I just love this city. Even after all the years that have passed since college days, the city just has not changed. Some pics for you here, lots of the Cathedral, I never get fed up of looking at this superb building…

A few days away

Good walk around the pine forests at Formby hoping to spot a few red squirrels…then on the beach past the old asparagus fields…then later to Another Place, where a team are in the process of re-mounting the Men on the Beach.
