I haven’t been on a proper outing for over a year, if you don’t count going to visit my daughter’s family last September which was very local once I got there. So of course when they offered to pick me up to accompany them to The Hovercraft Museum in Lee-on-Solent I jumped at the idea.… Read More A Little Outing including sea!
Except for the book post, which was unusual, this month was a good mix of the things I tend to write posts about. Crochet of course: in the form of the start of working on a new bookmark pattern. Cooking: some ‘healthy’ cookies. Quite a bit of photography concerning an outing to Chessel Bay and… Read More Monthly Montage – March
Although the beach along the river where I like to walk is rather brown,I have wondered if it is permissible to walk along it, to more fully indulge in the seaside experience. I did see a woman allowing her small son to paddle at the end of the walkway, where it is easy to get… Read More Another shoreline
I always like walking with a purpose (not just ‘for exercise’) and today I had a reason to go to the Common. I did feel that I was maybe a bit late to the party but a few days ago, after reading Nana Cathy’s post I looked for blackberries. In lots of places the bushes… Read More A Fruitful Walk!
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… Read More A Day in Dorset
Those of you who have been following me for a while might remember my ‘Adventure’ posts. However, when you have an outing sometimes “You just want to wander!” and so this is a record of some of that wandering. The weather has been so hot lately that it has actually put me off going very… Read More Sometimes you just want to wander!
I met up with my eldest and family and had a couple of meals and had fun in an Escape Room. Although this is not my photograph and therefore I do not own the copyright I am sure the Escape Plan guy won’t mind as this can be considered an advert. He was keen on… Read More What was I doing on Saturday?
Last Autumn I spent a day in Chichester. At the time I had so much photography to share, with my garden and the Photo Challenge, that I didn’t find a space to share my outing, though I have shared a few of the photographs in other contexts. In the morning when I arrived I wandered… Read More A day in Chichester
My last full day in Dorset. I had decided that after my day of walking to Hardy’s Cottage and back it would be wise to plan a less energetic day in case I was feeling tired. I decided that I would go to the coast and had been trying to choose between Bridport and Lyme Regis… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day five
Stinsford church, Thorncombe Woods and Hardy’s Cottage. Having had a bad migraine the evening before (maybe I was overdoing it after all!) I was pleased to find my head feeling much better as I set off. I had a leaflet that I had printed off the internet and I followed their walk to Hardy’s Cottage… Read More A Dorset Adventure in Five parts – Day four
