I don’t often dedicate a post to a church, infact I haven’t ever! but this dear little church which I recently happened on in London deserves special recognition. Tucked into the main thoroughfare of the upscale Piccadilly in London I was drawn down the steps into the forecourt as a craft market was setting up. […]
Neal’s Yard in London had n’t ever come under my radar despite many visits to London over the last 50 years. However bright images of Neal’s Yard kept popping up on my ‘chosen for you’ Pininterest page. So I headed for it on my last trip to the smoke. I arrived in London early just as the […]
Salisbury town centre is spread out but you can combine a shopping trip with a walk along the river, easy to access from the train station.
Some of my favourite photos of beautiful Cowes. Click on the photo for a caption and more information.

I could not believe it! Finally got to Abbey Road after 40 years of being on my bucket list and a group of young tourists made it impossible for others to enjoy the moment. They constantly ran across the road on that famous zebra crossing getting in the way of both traffic and other sightseers. […]
I had the good luck to meet Brendan Rendall in June this year whilst I was in Malawi volunteering at a secondary school with Friends of Mulanje Orphans. He and Emma Timmis were preparing for Brendan’s run of the entire length of Malawi to raise funds to build a science and art block for the FOMO Independent Secondary School. Emma […]
