A Day in Brighton

A couple of weeks ago we went to Brighton for the day....looks like we weren't the only ones to have this great idea!!

The weather was amazing

As I sat on the beach I tried to photograph the seagulls flying overhead

Do you know how difficult it is to get a perfect picture??

Perhaps I should stick to taking pictures of things that stand still?

The water looked so inviting

That looked fun

I loved the shopping!! These shops are along the seafront

But the best place to shop is in The Lanes, a maze of narrow streets with a wonderful selection of shops

That's where we spotted this delightful gentleman. I felt like I had stepped back in time!

Walking in Wiltshire

It was half term holidays last week and we did a couple of day trips. First was a visit to Caen Hill Locks which are on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Wiltshire. There are 29 locks over a distance of 2 miles. All the locks are manually operated and I was glad that I was on foot and not in a boat, it took the boats hours to get through.

Looking down from the top of the hill

Looking up the hill

Not just locks and boats

My husband spotted this sign

Do you think he's trying to tell me something?

Next stop was

and a l-o-n-g walk to the top of the hill

Time to rest

Made it!

My Version Alphabet Photography - Letter A

I'm working on photographing my town in an unusual way - see this post.

I have two possibilites for the letter A. Both taken at the local Church of England church.

Possibility 1 - the steeple

and possibility 2 - the front doors

Which do you prefer?

I ♥ Nando's

Not only do I love the food in Nando's restaurants but I also love the decor.

Vases in Nando's Windsor

Nando's in Woking has one wall decorated floor to ceiling with these mini canvases

Closer inspection revealed that some were painted

Some were mosaics

And some were beaded

I guess I'll have to eat more Nando's so I can post more pictures?!!
