Happy Birthday Bindy

Another birthday.

A very happy birthday to

I realise that most of the day has gone already but that's what happens when you have friends who live on the other side of the world.
Bindy, it is a delight and a pleasure to know you. I'm sorry I keep making you homesick with some of the pictures I post. It's not deliberate, and to prove it, here's another one, Lake Hawea - a perfect spot in a perfect country.

Monday by the sea

Last Monday was a holiday here in the UK. The weather was better than had been forecast so I felt I needed to go out and take some pictures. Because I hadn't planned anything, I ended up on my favourite stretch of coastline, the fascinating 200 million year old rocky beaches of the West Somerset coast.

I wandered further along the beach than I usually do and found myself in an area I hadn't visited for many years, a couple of miles along from Kilve, past the delightfully named East Quantoxhead towards St Audries Bay. The walking was not easy and I spent most of my time clambering over rocks and trying not to fall over. These are some of the things I saw. I tried to concentrate on some arty shots rather than the usual scenery. I hope you like the results.

Fair waved the ...ahem... green corn.

At the risk of breaking my update page with overuse, here are a couple of pictures I took at the week-end. I love cornfields. This one seemed very advanced for its age (it still being early May and all) but was delightful blowing away in the wind. I will have to go back when it's riper and grab the gorgeous colours, but I hope that's not for a while yet, I don't want to wish the summer away before it's begun. Actually, I could turn it into a cereal!
