Valentine's Park and in the garden

We went for a walk over Valentine's Park this morning for a coffee, and to see some of the new arrivals there, before heading back to have dinner in the garden with Liv and Richard where a rather brazen squirrel was tucking into the nut feeder behind us.

Night out in Leigh on Sea

After the day out in London, I traveled down to Leigh to see Kev who is over from Australia.  We went to the Mayflower to see a band. Due to my photo equipment, people though I was the local press, some demanding random photos!

Viewing level of The Tate

After the Bike Ride, Dave and I headed up to the viewing level of The Tate for the views over London, passing by a statue of Twiggy with Terence Donovan who had a studio nearby.
