While Sue and I were in Yorkshire, we visited an RSPB (the Royal Society for the Preservation of Birds) reserve for sea birds.

The cliffs were dramatic enough, but the birds sailing past made it a magical experience. To cap it, we saw an albatross, a unique sighting in the UK. This beautiful bird was a long way off course, engaged in a doomed search for a mate. I felt sorry for the bird, but it was a wonderful sight as it sailed past below us. I didn’t take a photo of it because I wanted to watch the bird without being encumbered by a lens.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Sue and I made time to visit Blackingstone Rock. Having written a story about the place, I thought I’d better share it with you.

The Rock, and the path to it, are hard to find. There was no signpost, and the car park was small and neglected. The path was so overgrown that we had to push our way through the undergrowth. The bracken was taller than me!

No one else was there, and we had fun exploring and taking photos.

Below you can see various views of the rock and the surrounding countryside.

Sue (Mrs C) and I have just come back from a week in my hometown, Pickering in North Yorkshire. It was a welcome break, and quite novel for us to be able to stroll into town and pop into the shops or a cafe.

Of course, I took a few snaps to try and capture the place for you.

I hope you don’t grow tired of the Devon countryside, because I can’t seem to stop marvelling at it and taking photos.

The landscape changes every day, and at this time of year it is particularly spectacular.

Now that things are getting easier, bit by bit, Mrs C and I ventured out for the evening.

Driving over to Teignmouth for fish and chips followed by a walk along the sea front, felt like quite an adventure.
