Friday Photo – The Elephant House, Edinburgh

Unfortunate news this week of a bad fire in the iconic cafe in Edinburgh where JK Rowling penned parts of her Harry Potter books. Hopefully it can be restored to its glory quickly.

UK Tour 2021 – Days 1 and 2 in Lincoln

With foreign travel off our agenda for the time being, we arranged to visit places in the UK that we had (mostly) not been to before. We first made for Lincoln, braving the Friday madness of the M25 & M11. I had pulled out a couple of aces for our stay – firstly by booking […]

Monday Morning Blues – Holy Island, Northumberland

This morning’s picture comes from just over a week ago, which I took on our UK tour. We arrived on the island by boat from Seahouses and found the place almost deserted as the tide was in making it inaccessible by car at that time. You can see the 16th Century built Lindisfarne Castle in […]

Monday Morning Blues – Knaresborough Viaduct in North Yorkshire, UK

Thankfully nobody was […]

Monday Morning Blues – The Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales

Just like Cornwall without the crowds, that’s the beautiful stretch of coastline in South Wales. I have been there twice and would love to make it a treble. So peaceful and equally stunning. A perfect memory for beating the Monday Morning Blues!

St David’s is the smallest city in the UK and home to a very fine cathedral.

A-Z April Challenge – L is for Love Supreme Festival, UK

Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Glynde, UK Maybe it’s an age thing but my favourite music genre nowadays is jazz. One of my year highlights is attending the Love Supreme Jazz Festival in Sussex, sadly postponed this year in 2020 with much of everything else. I have everything crossed that it goes ahead in 2021. In […]
