You’d never usually catch me doing so much snapping on a typical Saturday. But Emma and Michelle’s challenge had me pulling out my phone every hour to catch bit of what Tom and I were up to.
We woke up to an incredible thunderstorm- rain hammering down and clouds rumbling; an appropriate setting for the moment we discovered we were out of coffee…
Tom ran through the rain and I met him at Olivo’s for breakfast. Seriously good food: scrambled duck egg, black pudding and apple fritters, and ciabatta toast. There was plenty of coffee.
Back home, I finally started tackling the big pile of books in the loft. You might have noticed on Pinterest that I’ve been having lofty dreams for a while. This is just the beginning of a big job. I’ve taken a ‘before’ picture in the optimistic anticipation of sharing an ‘after’ before too long.
The sun came out and I spent the afternoon gardening and running errands. I love an excuse to take the chain ferry, and picking up goodies for a picnic seems as good an excuse as any.
We spent the last hours of the day exploring the forest and waterways of Newtown. We found a path we’d never explored, leading to a tiny bird hide perched out on the water of Clamerkin Lake. There are still so many places on this Island that I’ve yet to find.
I loved this photography challenge. It made me really aware of every hour in the typical kind of day that can fly by in a blur. It had me noticing more moments, and look for the beauty in them. I hope you’ll join in for July!
