A (mostly) quiet day
Today I went to Brighton with my little mother
and my good friend, Bon.
We went to a quiet day/retreat.
Well it was supposed to be a quiet day
and for the most part it was.
Little mother and I walked down to the beach in the morning,
and we took Bon back down in the afternoon for a stroll.
I have to confess that while the three of us were together,
shock horror, we Talked!! Oh dear!!
It was a beautiful, warm day and my little mother
and I sat out in the sun for lunch.
Yes, in this little glade behind the church,
on these two very uncomfortable chairs.
I noticed another lady had a beach roll that she just lounged on
and looked a lot more comfy than we were.
Mind you, my little mother did manage to doze off
for a few minutes in the sun.
These funny looking things were growing on a vine out there
and I asked one of the locals what they were
(after it was all over, you realize, I did behave most of the time).
I'd never seen them before.
Apparently they are banana passion-fruit.
I was tempted to pick some but thought I'd better not.
And just for fun I wanted to show you the welcome mat
outside the back door of the hall,
I had a good chuckle over this.
Somehow I don't think this door is used very often.
I forgot to take my camera with me
so took these pics on my cell phone.
The sun was so bright I couldn't see the screen,
so just pointed and hoped.
Now I'm hoping they don't disappear
on me at some point in the future.
Hoping this finds you all well,
have a good week,
