Sweet Chestnut

For the past two weekends, when out for long walks, I have been with a friend to Wivenhoe Park and Wivenhoe Woods collecting sweet chestnuts. The joys of friendship, foraging and fresh food!

Facing east to the sunrise over the River Colne from Wivenhoe, Essex.

On my way to an 8am appointment, I just had time to stop and admire the scene. The last beautiful summertime sunrise for 2020.

Grazing Rights

…Or why there were cows in my front yard last week.

Waxing Crescent

As the days draw longer, I enjoy my evening walk more. On Monday I strolled along the edge of Cymbeline Meadows towards the sunset, to catch sight of the moon, waxing crescent as it rose. I respect the older trees; here long before me, here long after me, their constancy reassures me.

A Well-Read Pub

The Old Inn Community Library

The Old Inn, book nook

The Old Inn, a fireplace

The Old Inn, Mullion, a 16th-century thatched inn on The Lizard, mainland Britain’s most southerly point. Dog-friendly, book-friendly, with a warm welcome, large portions of food and a good selection of drinks – what more could you want on a blustery January day? They have rooms, too, if you can’t tear yourself (or your dogs) away.

High and Low

One of my favourite buildings, St. Paul’s Cathedral, in one of my favourite places, the City of London. Ground level pictures were taken on 12 July from Paternoster Square, the elevated shots on 24 July from Madison on the rooftop terrace at One New Change. Even in extreme summer heat, some places always keep their cool.
