in the evening sun …
Can you see the tiny white dot right in the middle and in the last grey layer of landscape? That’s the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, 32 miles away! Even with extra zoom lens power, that distance is a bit of challenge! I can definitely see it though.
There’s something magical about the end of the day, as the sun sinks and the shadows grow. It had been raining during the day and when the sun came out in the evening we took a little trip to Cheesefoot Head, just a few miles out of Winchester. Up on the ridge, there are amazing views south towards Southampton and east to Portsmouth and on really clear days, as far as the Isle of Wight.
I love being outdoors and a jaunt after supper is always a treat. Hampshire is lovely – Winchester is special – Home is Sweet – the fields are green! I think I need a bit of seaside though. I’ve been longing to walk on a beach, to feel the sand between my toes, to look out into that blurry spot on the horizon where the water meets the sky. Yes, definitely – some seaside is on my ‘places to go, rather urgently’ list!
