One sunny morning...


I stopped to take a couple of photos on my way to work this morning...

This is part of the road that I cycle along - safety becomes much more important than speed!
A nice "English" scene...

This is the view across the city from a hill that overlooks it - the city is shrouded in mist but the Cathedral's towers are just visible about a third of the way in from the left.


Thought I would take this opportunity to say that I will not be around much next week as my wife is having her gall bladder removed on Monday and the rest of that week at least is going to be pretty hectic to say the least! Wish us luck. Those that know our story will be aware that going into the hospital will be bringing back some very unpleasant memories.

It's so neat to see where you live! Puts things in perspective! So very pretty!

Good luck to Clare and you. I know a little bit about how you feel going back to the hospital, so my thoughts are with you both.

BEE U TI FUL pictures Rock Chef!!

But...now I am very worried about you...that first picture (while breathtaking!) looks like a very dangerous road to cycle on! Not much room between you and the cars! Be careful!!

I most certainly will be praying for Clare, you and your family. I am sorry for the memories that will inevitably be there. Hang in there and I hope you feel our prayers.

No wonder it's so dangerous! All the cars are driving on the WRONG side of the road!

I know, I know.... that was a groaner!

Terri said...

OH.... and Clare will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Kiki said...

Rock Chef...you know you and your family will be in my thoughts, until we hear from you we will keep praying for a speedy recovery and a sense of peace during this surgery. {{Hugs}}}

Love the English countryside, so picturesque, and just how I pictured it and imagined it should be. Just lovely!
