I was only just in time to watch the sun sink into the sea!
At 4.20pm I glanced out of the window and noticed the colour of the sky. A quick look on the internet confirmed that sunset was at 4.27pm,I only just made it down to the sea shore and it was well worth the rush!
It's amazing how far the locations of the sun rising and setting move in the course of a year. It is good to notice this and marvel at the different views it gives us.
As the sun set the fishing boats headed home after another hard days work, can you see the line of sea gulls plotting its course as it heads back to harbour?
Last week was hectic, things always seem to come along at once, luckily this time they were good things! It was the Annual Bridport Literary Festival and also some of our favourite bands were playing close by, so there were 5 events that we attended!. We also converted our home office to accommodate two work spaces. It seemed very strange having a desk again and even stranger sitting next to my husband! We are both involved in a number of community voluntary projects which are taking up lots of our time but are enjoyable! How did I have time to go to work!
|Still need to sort out the windows!|
One of the authors we saw was Tristan Gooley who talked to us about his latest book How to read water. It was a very interesting talk and I am already looking at water in a completely different way! I loved some new terms we learnt, such as these ripples on the water caused by the wind are called Cats Paws......
and the rays of sunshine over the water described as glitter paths......
We still had time for dog walks and walking along this lane it almost felt that we had stepped back in time.
As I stood observing the two minutes silence in the Community Orchard, the Armistice service took place beside the church next door and my thoughts turned to those who had left these shores and had never returned
Thank you for sharing with me last week all the colours that you are surrounded by. The striking vibrant colours some of you described were such a contrast to the whiteness of frost and snow that has arrived in some parts.
Until next time.
