Light and shadows at Beach

Yesterday was a glorious, sharp but sunny day and one of those rare opportunities we get these days to relax a little and take a day off - or at least part of a day.

We all went over to see Chris (my son) and his wife Delene and their cat Snowball at the incongrously named "Beach" which is a small village set in a remote valley between Bath and Bristol. Well - it's remote, yet very close indeed to both cities. Regular readers and friends will know that Chris had an accident on his motorbike less than a fortnight ago and was hospitalised. After the initial panic when I was pulled out of a meeting with the breaking news, followed by the drive to Beach to pick up Delene and on to the hospital ("was he taken to the RUH or Frenchay?") where they had lost him off the system ... after the inial panic, damage turned out to be limited to a mashed knee and breaks in that area. A week in hospital, an operation to put metal pins in to hold everything together ("now, you'll always set off the airport metal detectors' Chris") and Chris is now back home in a full leg length plaster cast for a number of weeks, then a hinged one for a while longer ....


The light was shining in through the windows at the front of Fifteen Acre Cottage, and I couldn't resist taking a few snaps of Snowball - one of those cases where a colour picture that's very close to being monochrome is really effective!
