The Esplanade on a grey day

Rocks shoring up the sea wall

Steps to nowhere

Parliamentary election time...

...bollards covered in cloth exhorting us to vote.

Barrier and a lookout

Seagulls, just landed and hoping for scraps

In a garden



She wanted a sulky for her pony to pull. 
This one was given to her 
but it was too big so she put it in the garden 
and it has been there ever since.

Almost a super moon

I was driving over to my daughters place for tea a couple of days ago and spotted this great moon in the sky. I didn't realize we were anticipating a super moon until the next day, these were taken the evening before the full moon. Of course we were in a place where we couldn't stop, the moon just above the city skyline was quite spectacular, but them's the breaks. These are still quite nice I think.

taken approx 5pm


and later in the evening.
Both photo's taken the day before the full moon.
