October ramblings

I didn’t take as many photos as usual in October. Maybe the weather wasn’t so good for some of it, or maybe I was focused on unpacking some of the remaining boxes from my move. Anyway, the month got off to a lovely start with a family visit. We managed a bike ride along the front (well, some of us did…), and celebrated a birthday, before the weather the following day kept us trapped inside. We braved the grey skies the following day to throw a few stones into the sea before paying a repeat visit to Wingham Wildlife Park (and the dinosaurs).

The film I’d made the previous month for Libraries Week had its premier! And mid month some glorious autumn sunshine showed up, in time for a trip to Goodnestone park and gardens (top and below).

I had two weekends away – the first since March. One to Sussex, where we walked a lot and ate a lot, and the second to help out at half term, and to say farewell to my daughter, before she headed back to Goa. She got out just in time – Hallowe’en brought with it the unwelcome news of another lockdown, in the lead up to Christmas. Luckily, I’ve got an editing deadline to keep me busy, as well as the germ of an idea for a new book to explore in the coming month.
