I’m going away to Montenegro and Croatia with the kids for a week —
To see new horizons and sights.
In the meantime, I leave you with
A pretty, pink sunset down at the lake.
(I won’t be around to comment on your blogs for about ten days.
But don’t worry, Our World will be up and running as normal!)
For more peace, please go to: Skywatch.
And, of course, Our World!
My hotel in London was right opposite the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
Here’s Tower Bridge with elegant accents of blue.
It was cloudy for almost all of my visit –
But I did manage one pink morning (snapped on my mobile phone).
Parts of the old Roman wall of London
Are visible every now and then.
(I like the way the old stone is reflected in the modern glass on the left.)
One late evening saw us in Chinatown
Under red flags and a popcorn-cloud sky.
For more postcards, please go to: Our World.
The Shard is an iconic skyscraper in London:
95 stories high (306 metres tall), it’s made up of 11,000 glass panels,
And reflects the clouds. (It was very hot, and cloudy when I was there.)
While I was in London, I came across the Shard in unusual places –
Here it is glimpsed from an alleyway on the other side of the river.
On my last night, the sun finally burst through the cloud cover
Giving me a gorgeous view of the Thames and the Shard.
For more interesting skies, please visit: Skywatch.
Vivid red sky
And a sizzling reflection;
The setting sun balances
Later on, a bird flies by.
(All photos straight out of the camera.)
I’m going to London at the end of the week and then filming in Gothenburg as soon as I get back, so I won’t be posting for about ten days.
For more dazzling stories, please go to: Our World.
And don’t forget Skywatch on Friday.
My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :
They consist of watching
The sun setting over the lake:
Preferable with a burnt orange sky
And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.
For more faraway horizons, please visit: Skywatch.
During my trip to Sussex, I climbed up Beachy Head.
The walk is a steep one – but I was joined
By wildflowers and stunted trees waving their hair in the wind.
The blue of the sea faded
Into the blue of the sky.
I heard the skylarks – and also a more unusual sound –
Bagpipes being played by a lone piper (intent on not annoying his neighbours?)
He played well – and the music made the scenery even more majestic.

Another golden sunset:
Trees marching across the horizon;
The burnished copper of the lake
I gaze at the scene
For more fiery skies, please go to: Skywatch.
I had a lovely visit with my mum!
Before going off to the hotel where we were staying,
She urged me to walk to the neighbouring village
To enjoy the house with the wisteria.
And I’m glad I did!
The front door declared the house was called
The Old Priory.
Look at the windows and the flowers —
I fell in love. Who wouldn’t?
For more love, please go to: Our World.
By the time you read this, I’ll be visiting my mum in England (Sussex).
Hopefully, the rain will have cleared
And the trees will be out in full bloom.
We’re going on holiday
To Eastbourne, a town on the south coast,
So I hope to relax, spend quality time with my mum
And – of course, get some good views of the sea!
(All photos from previous trips back ‘home’.)
I won’t be visiting any of you this week, but a big thank you for popping by.
Do check out: Our World.
Monday evening — I look out of the tube window as we go overground.
I see the drama in the sky and the pastel buildings of Stockholm.
Take out my phone and snap a quick photo.
For more drama, please visit: Skywatch.
