Life through the Lens (7 March 2021)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

Brownsea Island, in Poole Harbour, not far from me. I used to love the Famous Five, and this was the basis for Kirrin Island – Enid Blyton used to spend her summers in nearby Swanage and Kirrin Castle was based on Corfe Castle, also not far away..

The island is owned by the National Trust, who open it to the public, although the castle that you see is private property. It is a haven for red squirrels, as they lost most of their habitat to the more aggressive greys.

I’ll have another shot of here next week.

Another Day In Paradise

Been out walking these last few days, because the weather has been beautiful and sunny. Yesterday I walked a mile and a half – doesn’t sound much but remember I can’t walk. Today was not as far, but I did at least shoot off a few snaps along the way. Some of the photos, it was too sunny, really, but I have tried a little to clean them up. My ankle felt sore both days, I think because of how little I’ve walked during the last year.

This was a cave we visited in Porto Cristo, Mallorca.

My neighbour christened this guy Bruno. Where I am, they breed pheasants in order to shoot them (I believe they call it sport). I therefore welcome escapees, and Bruno very sensibly spent the winter living in my front garden. Isn’t he beautiful?
