CATCHING UP - ECLIPSE DAY
Last Friday on the morning of the eclipse, dense cloud was forecast so I was pretty sure there would be nothing to see in our area. I decided to experience the eclipse as fully as possibly by enjoying a walk in Coombe Wood hoping that if I was outside for the whole of the eclipse I would notice if anything felt any different. It was a very dull morning but as the time for the eclipse approached I walked and took photos as usual, enjoying all the signs of spring.

|These might be quince buds|
|I find the middles fascinating|
|Had these mallard drakes had a disagreement?|
I do like the curly black feathers of the mallards just above their white tails

My kind friend treated me to a very welcome hot drink and some delicious banana, chocolate and treacle cake in the Coach House Cafe.
Soon after getting home again the sun came out. It was a little disappointing not to see the eclipse but I was very glad I had made the effort to be somewhere where I could experience little things about it.
Thank you very much for joining me. I will be back later.
