Of castles and men

We took a trip to Caerphilly today, home of the cheese as they will have it, despite it not having been made there for many years. Seeing the castle - there is one and it's a little hard to miss - gave me pause to reflect while sitting in the car and waiting, as you do. The town itself is a fair s...

More on butterflies

I wrote of getting drenched when having set out to spot butterflies and thought, having cleared my head of the monkey chattering on the subject, that the matter would be closed. But no. This morning I remembered my shoes. The half decent ones I'd been wearing when we got wet through to our soles. We...

Amazing weather

Out this morning at a loose end - another one - and I'd a thought to attempt some butterfly shots. I've not done them before, everyone seems to be doing it so it has to be easy. Right? A comfy bench, excellent sea views, sunshine and surrounded by meadow grasses and flowers. Perfect. When I was ther...

Time wasting

A group of three fishermen were attempting to launch their boat from it's car trailer. Being a bloke, I'm an expert at many things and settled down on a comfortable rock to enjoy the spectacle. It was obvious that the trailer was too far short of the end of the slipway, the water wasn't anywhere nea...

What a difference a day makes

We've been in our new home around six months and last Sunday was the first real hot day we've experienced. What a difference! Kids on bikes, scooters, skateboards and skates, couples, singles and groups, canoeists, model boats, yachts, dinghies, even swimmers, dogs and all shapes and sizes of too mu...

The nocturnal habits of swans

Well, not really, but do they ever sleep? Out for a wander at 04.10 - no, don't ask - and I found myself drifting along the local lakeside. Spotted from some distance, they came up and shadowed me all the way until I got too spooked and made a sharp left turn for the sea front instead. Clearly on th...

Never mind the hamster

My computer ate my camera card! It's the second time of happening and, yes, I did change the card after the first instance in case that was at fault. Both times it happened I'd taken world beating shots, of course, and had reviewed most of them in camera. When I pulled the card(s) and stuffed them i...

Of cats

Cats are funny folk. I know all the locals, who belongs and who doesn't and I'm fairly sure they all know me, I get "shouted at" from quite a distance some days and ignored from quite close up just as often. There's some who go out of their way to be spoken to and those who are far to busy...

Old feet

Been out and about today, not a lot, but for me, a fair bit. My feet hurt now. Not in a sore feet soak 'em in a bowl of hot water sort of way, more like they've had a bit of a squeezing from the old troll under the bridge. The bones hurt. Hmm.... I reckon those Hobbits had it easy, big hairy feet, n...

Bleurgh

It's all a bit damp and miserable, the weather's not much cop either. Seems that if you do go out - down here at least - it's either blowing a gale and wet or wet and blowing a gale. May the gods bless the first manufacturer to have produced base layer clothing. And there must be a law which states ...

Yet more sillyness

I got given a prime lens - secondhand so it's all about recycling and stuff - and the adaptor finally arrived yesterday so I was let loose to try it all out today. The sun was shining, the tide was out, dogs of all varieties were running around ( who would own a husky in this country? And why? It ...

Cold & stupid

Here's the thing, when you realise, or should it be, when you find yourself so cold you drop the lens cap which you couldn't feel anyway as you forgot your gloves (nice, thick, thermally ones) and the wind bowls it away over the cliff edge, you didn't stop to tie your boot laces because you where in...
