Estuary night walk

(Summary blog only.   Last full blog was Day 0368).

A leisurely morning and breakfast then a quick walk with Val before lunch of Ikea vegetarian Swedish meatballs and salmon.   Quite nice.

Completed the difficult Spanish homework in the afternoon then in the evening walked out to the estuary following a route that avoided the locked demesne gates which thwarted yesterday’s effort to complete this circuit.   Very enjoyable, actually, even though a bit wet midway when it rained briefly.

Feeling exceptionally mild.

Today’s photos (click to enlarge)

False jasmine still in full bloom at the bottom of Hanlon’s lane The Casino – home of the model railway museum and Val’s day-time job – looking charming this evening.   The thatched roof has faded considerably even in the year that we have lived here
The path from Killeen Avenue through to Castle Cove, in Seabury Further along the same path.   It was popular with dog-walkers this evening
Wonderlights is visible from far and wide
Impressive proto-puffball growing by the roadside in the Casino grounds.  The mild wet weather this autumn is causing fungi of all shapes and sizes to thrive
