For those of you who follow Wild Daffodil’s blog as well as mine this will be something of a reprise, though as seen by a visitor who forgot to put the SD card in her camera! – I blame the uncertain weather, so many other things to think about, like what to wear and what to take in case it rained, was cold….. What I didn’t consider was that it might be hot!
My camera does allow a few photographs in the internal memory, after that I switched to my phone. Luckily my current phone takes reasonable photographs though I have never bothered to learn the finer points, preferring a real camera!
I followed Wild Daffodil in taking a photograph of her walking off down the path.
But then I saw another of those excellent sign posts so I had to photograph it!
We eventually arrived at St Catherine’s chapel.
Remembering St Catherine’s chapel that I had visited with my granddaughter I had expected a ruin
but no! a charming little wooden chapel in current use. Inside There were engraved glass windows that were hard to photograph but I did take a photograph of this dedication in the corner of one of them.
We sat and listened to the sea. and looked at the gravestones I tried to take a selfie but I have never done it before and I notice mine makes our skin rather dark and spotted! smaller is definitely better! (from a photographic point of view.)
After this we went to the Moreton Tearooms for lunch.
We both had the same which was quite delicious.We then went to a walk, chatting all the while of course!
We went over this bridge it you look carefully you can see that it was quite narrow and maybe a bit scary! (I have a bit of a phobia about going over or under bridges.)
It was obviously the ideal place for fun with children in the summer but there were more rural views beyond. After walking for a bit we headed off to St Nicholas’ church in Moreton.
This also had engraved glass windows. I was struggling to take photographs with my phone but here are a few.
The first was taken quickly of the inside. I was surprised to see that the East end consisted of an apse instead of the normal square chancel.
This was one of the simpler windows but maybe easier to photograph on that account.
This is the central part of a window in memory of members of the Finlay family.
The window that photographed most successfully was one in memory of an airman.
One day I must go back and do more justice to all that can be seen in this church. And maybe have a look at the outside.
In the graveyard we stopped to see T E Lawrence’s grave.
After this we went to nearby Moreton Walled Garden for another stroll and a cup of tea. The garden was full of abstract sculpture though I did see one of a mushroom on its side.
No more photographs, though some of the sculptures looked worth photographing. Maybe when I go back for another look at the church.
After our tea, Wild Daffodil took me back to the station. It is a shame that Moreton station is not nearer to the village as the roads between are very much rural roads with no pavements.
All in all it was a wonderful day: so much to see and do and best of all an opportunity to spend time with someone who loves crochet as much as I do and is great fun to be with.
