Clinging on

Seems like the last days of summer at the moment, but not giving up hope!

We've just had a very enjoyable holiday on Anglesey, an island off the north coast of Wales - you could clearly see the mountain range, including Snowdon, in the distance. The last two pics were taken in the old copper mine near Amlwch with amazing orange-yellow colours. The mining goes back to Roman times and was once a thriving industry, today you can walk around the site and imagine all the activity that once took place here (and they were my favourite colours!)

I was surprised to find some autumn leaves on the ground - it's still summer! - although it has been cold this week with almost continual rain.
We have all been dismayed and shocked at the violent scenes of disorder and looting we've seen on tv - a lot of prayer has gone up for calm and peace and will continue to do so.

Beautifully small

Thank you for all your kind wishes since my adventure in a helicopter! Feeling almost back to normal now. Good job I didn't have my camera with me - it would have been smashed to pieces.

Ups and downs

A lot has happened since I last blogged! A strenuous (for me!) 3-hour walk up Cheviot ended with a 15 minute ride down in an RAF air-sea rescue helicopter after I tripped and gashed my face on stone. No bones broken - just needed to be glued together. Could have been a lot worse. The crew was marvellous and I am extremely thankful to them and my friends who looked after me until the helicopter arrived.
This was followed by travelling down to Suffolk for my nephew's wedding where a good time was had by all! These shots were taken "down south"!
