At Last --- Butterflies

The Marbled Whites are finally back in Toft Wood, after two days of torrential rain, no less.  The lower pic is a female, the other two are males, and the top pic is a Meadow Brown.

Brakes, Birds and Rain

Peter and I changed Bea's brake fluid until it began to rain, then took cover like this magpie until the thunder and torrential rain ceased.

The Houseboats

On a stretch of Shoreham's coast named 'Riverbank', there are three dozen houseboats that have become almost permanent residences.  Some, like the Luna Sea (lunacy) a 155 ft ex-German minesweeper, actually look like boats, and some like 'Verda' are floating works of art.  Even solar panels are to be seen.

Shoreham hosted a round of the south coast regatta, with teams from as far as Dover and close as Worthing.  I arrived a little late to get many photos, which was a pity, as it was a challenge.

Food Festival

Shoreham was having a Food Festival and associated fun.  Selling bratwurst from a VW van is neat.  The man with the piano spent ten minutes wheeling it around on this spot, seemingly unable to decide which way to face.

Nymans Gardens

We stopped off at Nymans Gardens on the way down to Shoreham-by-Sea for the weekend.  Ann said there were trees and plants there that she had never seen before.

Lacking at Lakenheath

A disappointing afternoon under blue skies with fluffy white clouds at RSPB Lakenheath.  Not one hobby was to be seen, nor bittern or heron.  From top: Sedge Warbler; Great Egret; Common Tern.

70s Road Cars

To Snetterton with Pete.  We drove through a monsoon and watched some racing in very wet conditions, then the sun came out and dried the track completely.

Aviation Art

A sunny day, and Duxford was busy, but as many of the aircraft were flying, people were outside, and using a tripod in the hangars was no problem.  Three B&W and one colour for comparison.
