An English country garden
A journey along the path of life - the stones can be rough, smooth or even wobbly!
Yes, its the British summer - so expect rain! But sailors are hardy folk, and I had been invited for another day aboard Harmony.
Recently, I had a journey to London and used my old CD player. Its so old that the wires in the headphones have a dodgy connection, and I ended up for two hours in one position. If I moved a centimetre, I lost all sound in my ears. So I sat still, in the required position, with my head on one side, holding the wire tightly between my fingers, not daring to move a muscle. And if there were any jolts, the CD skipped. And such a kerfuffle to change a CD. It was not a comfortable journey.So I decided to treat myself to something slightly more sophisticated. My new mp3 player is called a Zen Nano Plus. With a name like that, and its sleek blackness, I had to have it! Its the size of a cigarette lighter but with more memory than my first computer! And I can listen to the radio, or download radio programmes I have missed. And all sorts of things I havent discovered yet.
Its wonderful weather. Its a real treat to step out into the garden first thing in the morning. The air is still and cool, but you know its going to be a scorcher.
This magical island is only three miles long, but what a wealth of wonderful bays it holds. Most of the coastline is forbidding cliffs, but here is a taste of the rest.
Tabor asked a question, and David rightly answered - with another question! But I was quite careful to bring small ones home this time, well, mostly small anyway:- Iona marble, mermaid's tears which are the tiny green translucent bits of marble(I never did tell the myth behind the name did I?) and a few themed ones with stripes. But they were so heavy that I had to carry them about my person onto the plane home, rather than in the checked-in rucksack. The tiny pink things are cowrie shells.
