Taking a break...



A train with a view

lucky capture
stone wall
in winter

Ribblehead Viaduct ? I believe

at Moannie's
my old new best friend, Milou

dog walking every afternoon

blows away
any cobwebs

revisiting old haunts
realigning memories
and misspent deeds

Reculver Towers
Minnis Bay & Margate
in the walkable distance

  1. Strange seeing my old haunts through the lens of your camera.

    This has been a lovely visit and it 'aint over yet.

    And may I say a big thank-you to the boffins for finally giving us Spell-check.

  2. You look wonderful, Saz. Yes, it's strange to see Moannie's world here through you, but it is so good, too, mother and daughter.

    I wonder how you move through the kitchen together? Or is JP doing all of the cooking?

    Have a beautiful visit, two of my favorite women.

  5. Oy, oy. oy...I've just come in from taking the dog for a long walk - around the residential streets of Chicago. Nuff said.

  6. I'm so glad you are once again enjoying the civilised luxuries of conversations with people who love you, quiet and full afternoons as you caress old memories and create new ones, and long, necessary walks in beautiful countryside. Good.

    Please have a particularly wonderful time, I'm sure you will. It's still sincerely meant.
    Happy Christmas.

  17. No that is a walk I did several times as a kid with my family. We used to holiday in Herne Bay - mad it is only about 20 miles from where we lived!! but we'd walk to Reculver have picnic and then try to catch the huge crabs if the tide was out, have a swim and walk or possibly get the open top bus back. Flipping heck that was a long long time ago!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
