First trip to the seaside this week! It was the earliest in the year we have ever been. The night before, we had watched the BBC ‘Climate Change: The Facts’ documentary and were impressed with how upfront it was. Hopefully it is part of a new recognition that lifestyles and consumption need to change. Going to our nearest coastline is the furthest occasional journey we have been doing since 2005, and even then we question ourselves for driving there and want to look at alternatives.
Earlier in the week, these sleeping Egyptian geese were a peaceful sight by the river.
The sunny days are good for laundry and there’s always something pleasing about a line of colourful socks.
Today we went to the local university for a walk around the lake, where we saw a grass snake swimming across a pool and then moving along the edges before coming out of the water and out of view. The main lake was rippling in a hypnotic way as we walked round.
The university is also home to lots of rabbits, and we saw plenty today – huge ones and small young ones. The hills where they have their warrens are covered in beautiful pink storksbill flowers at the moment. The rabbits themselves are impossible to photograph, but you can see from the photo below that they have recently been there!
