The Dying of the Light

Now the clocks have fallen back for winter, I count every moment of daylight. The work day dawns as I head to the train station, but has long since given way to night by the time I arrive home.

September Sunset

As the days shorten, I can now catch the sunset on my early evening dog walk. A quiet time on a weekday along the river path to Alresford Creek, with only bird song and brief greetings from photographers to punctuate the peace.

Reminder

This week the Thames Sailing Barge Reminder moored up in Wivenhoe. In the nineteenth century there were over 2000 of these cargo boats, now Reminder is one of only a few. Built in 1929 in Mistley as a racing barge, she was repurposed as a leisure vessel in 1975. A present glimpse of times past.

A Warm, Good, Night

…from the front porch on a hot summer’s night, with an ice cold drink. Sweet dreams.
