I was looking for signs of life in the shallow edge of the river. Couldn't find anything.
Another cool but sunny evening so we all toddled off down to the cottage for some freedom and fun. Fifi cant wait for the warmer weather so she can go paddling in the river. Today's picture has to be the two of them playing with the bubble I bought last week.
When I dropped the grandchildren off at home this morning I went round to daughter No 2's house to pick up some of her rubbish to take to the recycling centre on the way home, but forget it doesn't open till ten on a weekday morning, so had to leave it in the boot. As it was a nice evening we went back round and then went out to Auchencruive Estate. Sadly there are signs up all over the place saying it has been taken over. They have shut off all the car parks and are demolishing buildings.
You would think at least they would have switched the water off before demolition, what a huge waste of clean water,
Loving these summer nights, light till way past tea time, great to get out for an evening walk, breaks up the evening and its not like I don't need the exercise. Decided instead of the park to take a wander round the cemetery. Morbid I know but I find them quite quite peaceful in a strange sort of way. Also gets you thinking, some of the dates go back fifty, sixty, a hundred years - who actually remembers them? I remember my grandparents, have very very fond memories of my paternal ones, but don't remember my great- grandparents.
This is a multiple grave of American airmen who died locally in March 1918, wonder if anybody ever visits them?
Had to run son No 1 somewhere this week, and took this while I was waiting for him to finish.
This is the chestnut tree in the garden throwing out it's new shoots.
Got this through the post today along with a review item. Must admit he is rather cute.
