This past weekend my best friend came over to stay. She hasn’t been in ages, so even though the weather looked quite grim (it was awful on the Friday and pretty darned nice the rest of the time) we wanted to make the most of it. We hired a car (I say we, neither of… Read More A weekend visit
We were treated to a beautiful sunset tonight. The clouds were perfect, and the sky eventually went pink then indigo then deep dark blue.
Where we come from in the UK, we have gentle hills. Green hills. Crops. Woods. Streams. It is pretty. However that’s only going one way.
