Sunday walk

I woke up to the beautiful morning today after a gloomy and very wet day yesterday. The view of sparkling drops glistening on the top of the trees I see from my window was giving a promise of a fine day. I went then for a walk around my local park again. You could see that lots of leaves have already gone within the last two weeks. Still, there is some colour left and with the blue sky as a backdrop it was a pleasant stroll.p7park2p9park3park5park6park7park8p1park9park109p3


Trip to Pokrzywna

My short break in Poland is coming to an end. I have stayed for a week in the country visiting my parents and family. The weather has remained quite cool and grey over the last few days but today there was a glorious sunshine and blue skies and we tried to make the most of it. I regret not bringing my Canon with my and had to use my phone to take any photos. Pokrzywna is a small town in Opawskie Mountains close to the Czech border. I remember staying over there few years back with my then boyfriend in one of the cute wooden houses on the steep hill. We had a fire place inside with plenty of the chopped up logs and the owners kept some peacocks and other birds as an attraction. I think the place was called Panama. Today we wandered around the fishery and the flood gate. The water in the stream was clear and very cold, what a relief must bring in summer. We shall be back then. Tomorrow I have got an early flight to London so thank goodness for the clocks going back!
