Today along the river

 It was such a beautiful Autumn day I just had to get out and walked for about two hours. I was watching a kestrel and as it disappeared, I turned around and there was a red kite right overhead being mobbed by crows. There weren't many people about but I did see a man with three dogs and we stopped and had a socially distanced chat about walking and dogs. 

I think this chap has sat here a bit too long!

It is supposed to rain tomorrow so glad I got a good walk in today. DD was supposed to come to stay this week. It would be her first visit back to this town since she moved away last July although we have visited her several times. Due to Essex being put into tier 2 that is now on hold. We wont make plans next time but as soon as we are allowed DS will go and bring her straight back. 


  1. I love seeing that houseboat on the river and then that wonderful skeleton. I'm glad you got in your walk before the rain hits. I hope your lockdown is successful.

  2. What a gorgeous day. Love the gentleman on the bench. He is already for Halloween.

    God bless.

  3. Shame your daughter couldn't visit. So frustrating these lock downs.

  4. What a treat to see a kestrel and a red kite. Family visits, or lack of to be precise, are one of the worst parts of the pandemic. :(
