The promise of a bank holiday… August 28, 2011

I love a bank holiday, don’t ask me why. It might be left over from my younger years, when it meant an extra day off, a promise of something better. Tomorrow it means a day spent with friends, perhaps a glass of Pimms or two, catching up, good food, before the end of the holidays are upon us.

Only a couple of days ago we were travelling home, along the A30, sun going down. And then there was a magical moment, the perfect combination of raindrops and sunlight, a rainbow. And at one point I could see both ends of the rainbow. And then a double rainbow. Photographs can’t do it justice, but here we go…

Homeward bound

Homeward bound



A double rainbow

Double rainbow - look closely!

Almost there...

Almost there..

Red sky begins

Red sky begins...

I saw both ends of the rainbow – I couldn’t catch it, but I did see it xx


A month of adventures August 25, 2011

It’s been a busy old month, with lots of travelling around the country to visit our families. First we went to the Essex coast, then ventured up the A1 to Northumberland, a day trip to Edinburgh, then back to Essex via a quick lunch near Boston, a 90th birthday party, and finally a walk round Stonehenge! It’s been action packed to say the least! Just got home last night so once the dust has settled I can begin processing all that has happened and maybe even post some photos x
