Silence…

Today’s word is silence.

My focus is on the silence of remembrance: my picture is the Dasher Memorial on Ardrossan Seafront.

On 27 March 1943, there was an explosion on board the HMS Dasher and 379 crew were lost to the sea.  And every year, on Remembrance Sunday, we remember them in the silence.

Skimming stones

Today, another amazing picture by Brian Johnstone – skimming stones all the way to Ailsa Craig.

Walking

 I am trying to get a bit (ok a lot) fitter. So I have started walking for half an hour or so every day. This was where I walked this morning, Ardrossan North shore (my favourite picture taken a few years back by my brother Mike.

I was wearing a new pair of trainers today, but unfortunately they rub my foot and so I ended up walking bare foot along the sand – the shore front was the last part of my walk.

 

June in Scotland (continued…)

The stormy theme continues into the weekend, and it looks a bit like this:

  In Saltcoats. 

 
And like this in Ardrossan. (Pictures from Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald on Facebook.)

Still moving hopefully onwards in pursuit of summer 😎

Thus Nature sorrows, and forgets her sorrow ;

    And Reason soberly approves her way :

Why should we shut oor een against to-morrow

    Because our sky was clouded yesterday ?
