Some website editing problems tonight. The booking calendar is driving me to distraction! Time to "phone a friend" - except in my case it has to be "e-mail a friend" - since my hearing aids won't connect to the new phone. Technology!!
Watching the sun go down this evening. The sun sets at this time of the year more or less through the Dane Valley gap revealing the Cheshire Plain, past The Cloud at Bosley. Not the best sunset we've had this year by any means, but pretty good. Last bit of the sunset lost in a cloudbank moving in over the Mersey. Maybe rain tomorrow?
We were up before dawn today, so we trotted off over Roach End and watched the sun rise over the moors around Three Shires Head - believe it or not, there were three amateur photographers there already at 05:10 am!!
Monday night was a fabulous night for watching the sky. The large half-moon set around midnight and the air was crystal clear. Sat outside with the binoculars looking up (and into the past!) until I was dizzy! Scout isn't too interested in stars, so she was snuffling about in the bracken, presumable chasing little night creatures.
