An English seal

Seal

I went to the Blythburgh summer fete last month and among the day’s frivolities was a boat ride around the local waterways. And we saw a seal ! It had never occurred to me that I might see a seal in England. The said creature, however, was none too impressed by us, a boat load of humans leaning over the side to take his picture. His look of disdain says it all.

B&W graveyard scenes

Tombstones

I’ve taken a leaf out of my fellow blogger Lignum Draco’s book and turned my graveyard pictures into black & white to add more mystery and soulfulness to the images. If you haven’t already, drop by Draco’s site at Etcetera Etcetera Etcetera.

British sunshine

At the beach

I was in Suffolk on the weekend and it was glorious weather for most of it.  Everyone was enjoying what might be the last of the British summer sunshine. The pebbly beach in Aldeburgh was relatively uncrowded, largely because the hoards flocked to the sandy beaches.  I have to say, the  benefits of a pebbly beach is that you don’t get sand in all your orifices !

When I look back, I smile and think “that was definitely a good day”.
