Day 359 – Where’s Everyone…?

On our way back from our daughter’s house today, I noticed that our local supermarket was completely deserted. Of course it’s Christmas Day and it’s one of only two days a year when it closes (the other day is Easter Day). It’s usually such a hive of activity it was quite a surprise to see the car park completely empty!

Day 353 – More Rain…!

Already, this month is heading for being one of the wettest Decembers on record in the UK, and today was another grim day. It pretty much rained all day, and although there has been no flooding around here, there was plenty of surface water to make driving difficult. A slow motion app on my phone allowed me to catch the ripples from the rain.

Day 342 – Christmas Message…

I’m not often seen inside a church, but the Christmas Carol Service in the local parish church is not to be missed. Full of families with kids, lots of carols, and mince pies and mulled wine afterwards. This simple tree decoration makes a powerful image…

Day 339 – Favourite Watering Hole…

This is indeed one of our favourite pub/restaurants. It’s about a 20 min drive away, but has great food and a very warm and friendly atmosphere. We always take visitors from outside the UK here as it is the epitome of an English pub.

Day 338 – Misty River…

On our way home this afternoon after lunch with family we could see a rather nice sky developing as we drove near the River Severn at Arley. A quick diversion took us down to the river, where we were rewarded with a beautiful sunset, and mist forming on the river. With nowhere to park, and no time to set up my Sony camera, this was a quick shot using my phone…
