An afternoon walk.
Today was a lovely autumn day so I took my trusty camera for a walk in my Lovely Cousin's home county. I have been here for 37 years but still considered an incomer.
This is the view from a housing estate not far from my home.
An old lady stopped me and what she said made me sad. She said these fields will soonly be a new housing estate.
Further along the lane I asked these ladies for an opinion. All they had to say was Bah!
The view from a bridge to the right,
… and to the left.
A rural sluice gate, flood control Zumerzet style.
A George the fifth "lamp box", so called because they were small and usually hung on lamp posts where there was a low demand for postal collections.
A Zumerzet Porsch. Well, they cost about the same amount.
Our green and pleasant land.
A village church.
An old priory in the distance. No longer used for religious purposes as far as I am aware, but preserved and open to the public.
Clevedon, a few kilometres away.
One of the locals giving me the eye.
The "windsock" for a local aero model flying club. There were a couple of chaps flying their 'planes but they were just too fast for me to capture an image.
Another local. I'm not sure but I think it might be a buzzard as there were a couple in flight later on.
From the film Oklahoma, slurry with a hinge on top!
...I'll get my coat.
People off on their holibobs. I worked in the aero industry for 43 years and was suspicious of any operator that could turn an aircraft round in 20 minutes, but having flown with this outfit a few times on business I changed my mind.
I have not however changed my mind about the Irish outfit with blue and white 'planes.
The village butter cross ossopite the church.
The aforementioned church, the same one from the earlier shot.
One of several Hunky Punks. These are grotesques but are not gargoyles. They are purely decorative and probably a throw back to pagan times, used to ward off evil spirits.
A private house that was possibly once a chapel.
Birds on a wire.
Yep, we still have them. Corn circles, by the trailer load.
Does anyone want to buy …
… a telewag pole?
