Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you all for taking the time to view, comment and vote on my image yesterday.

As you will know I was expecting my brother to come down to Worthing for a couple of days. Well he did along with his wife Elayne. However he brought a surprise visitor. My mum who I have not seen for a couple of years due to one thing and another. So it was a wonderful surprise and we made the most of the good weather.

I hope that you all have a great day for us well who knows.

Regards as always

Like the mono and the dof, pity about the bike lying on the ground, just a bit of a distraction for me.
