365 Project – Day 30

If anyone read the note at the bottom of yesterday’s posting I didn’t go to The Lakes today but I am certainly going tomorrow, so this IS my last 365 Project post until next week. Today has been dry, phew, but very dull with thick cloud all day so the light is completely flat and…

365 Project – Day 29

Today I went to an event in Warminster organised by the local branch of the U3A (University of the Third Age). I had never been to a U3A event before and I must say that I was very impressed with their organisation and their ability to get well over one hundred people out on a…

365 Project – Day 28

I’ve often found graveyards to be a good source for interesting photographs. There is a really good one at the top of Lansdown Hill by Beckford’s Tower which I will hopefully visit again one day if it ever stops raining and the fields dry out. There’s another not far from us at Locksbrook which I…

365 Project – Day 27

Today has been another of unbelievably foul weather. It has been cold, wet and windy. I absolutely HATE days like today and I have gone to ground at home for the day getting dirty looks from the dog who also hates it but would like a walk. She’ll get one later. To cheer myself up…

365 Project – Day 26

Last summer I spent two weeks walking the first part of the Arles Way Camino route in the South of France. I enjoyed beautiful weather and some wonderful meals on my way. I was blogging each day about my experiences and was rebuked by one of my daughters for going on too much about the…

365 Project – Day 25

OK, so I’ve bought a new camera. I like buying new cameras like some ladies like buying shoes, coats, frocks etc., but I like buying new cameras. In fairness I got a good deal by part exchanging and old camera I’ve not been using and that pleases me no end. It means is that I…

365 Project – Day 24

Friday is the day when Mrs Sixwheeler allows me the privilege of pushing her shopping trolley round Sainsbury’s while she does our weekly shopping. This is a treat that I look forward to all week. I have to declare an interest that many moons ago I worked for J Sainsbury which I thoroughly enjoyed and…

365 Project – Day 23

Regular readers will be aware that Maude and I like a walk in Royal Victoria Park in Bath. This park is a large, beautiful open space right in the middle of Bath and is a real benefit to residents and visitors. There was a problem that people were using the park to leave their cars…

365 Project – Day 22

Some years ago some friends and I went for a week trekking in the Karwendel Alps in Austria. After a long first day we were forced to bail out as there had been an unexpected¬† big dump of fresh snow and all the trails were closed; even the guides were not going out. Plan B…

365 Project – Day 21

Are we being lulled into a false sense of security regarding the weather? Is Spring really round the corner? I don’t know and there’s still plenty of time for ice and snow but I found these that cheered me up. 21 January 2014
