Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

After the horrendous journey to Portsmouth, we decided not to travel back home the same way, opting instead to take the more scenic route through the Cotswolds. As most people do, we stopped off at Bourton-on-the-Water.
There had been a few heavy showers on our way, but we were lucky enough to avoid them for the duration of our visit. Walking along the river Windrush, was lovely as always, if a little too busy for our liking. Some of the old houses were decked out with summer flowers - and tourists! (A little digital manipulation was needed to erase most of the people from this picture.)
We stopped for coffee at a riverside cafe...
Then headed along more of the river...
It was nice to stretch our legs mid-way through the long journey home and Bourton is certainly the place to do it.
All too soon, it was time to return to the car and head off again on our way home only to find ourselves caught up in traffic once more. Roadworks around Coventry and then nose-to-tail traffic on the M1 were frustrating, but thankfully, nowhere near as bad as Sunday's debacle.
