All alone again

Our final visitors for the year should now be on their way to Sunderland, having been picked up from East Midlands Airport. We've been fortunate with the weather.

Tuesday at the beach.

Boarding in late October surely can't be that much fun.

How Sophie's barn used to look.

Sophie's barn finished.

Early evening boules.

Emm falling over the barrier. Aimee wins with me second.

Devastation in Yvon's woods.

This area leading up to Yvon's wood cabin was thick with trees a few days ago. I'll go and take some daytime photos when they've finished.  It's all very sad to see.

A trip to Lizio's Economusee yesterday.

These contraptions are amazing...all fully moving with bells , drums and whistles. The place is packed inside and out with this sort of thing.

The owner (two years younger than me) upcycles just about everything. 

This reminded me of a work of art by Miro.

I loved this wired-up discarded mannequin who turns her head, lifts her arms and plays the organ.

Next year should be very interesting if what I see at the bottom of his garden comes to fruition.

Having lunch on the way to the airport today.

Yes, it was Buffalo Grill.

It was really good having you here.  See you in a few weeks when we come over.

  1. It's great to keep up with the kids on their visits to France. Great photos, great adventures. Do you get much painting done? Great subjects there.
