Seeking the Colour
I left behind
every day a little less grey
out of reach

The Cottage lies empty
The Captain lost at sea,
Her heart knows that he is out there
Like a light for all to see.
She will not despair
The Captains is the keeper now

I took this Photo when I was at Lake Windermere in August
and I was drawn to these wooden Boats all tied up in a row they have a lot of character.
Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. It is a ribbon lake formed in a glacial trough after the retreat of ice at the start of the current interglacial. It has been one of the country’s most popular places for holidays and summer homes since the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere Railway‘s branch line in 1847. It is in the county of Cumbria and entirely within the Lake District National Park.
A quick stop in London for the day, time for a few hours sightseeing before heading to Hong Kong on our way home to Australia
Two More Pictures from around Liverpool City and Albert Dock.
You Can see the Royal Liver Building in the distance with the Clock Face.
The Clock Face is actually bigger than Big Ben’s in London and I Have recently found out that my Mothers Grandfather
participated in the Lunch around the Clock Face before it was put in place . You can see the picture ref3906

The Royal Liver Building /ˈlaɪvər/ is a Grade I listed building located in Liverpool, England. It is sited at the Pier Head and along with the neighbouringCunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building is one of Liverpool’s Three Graces, which line the city’s waterfront. It is also part of Liverpool’s UNESCOdesignated World Heritage Maritime Mercantile City.
Opened in 1911, the building is the purpose-built home of the Royal Liver Assurance group, which had been set up in the city in 1850 to provide locals with assistance related to losing a wage-earning relative. One of the first buildings in the world to be built using reinforced concrete, the Royal Liver Building stands at 90 m (300 ft) tall. It was the tallest storied building in Europe from completion until 1934 and the tallest in the United Kingdom until 1961. The Royal Liver Building is now however only the joint-fourth tallest structure in the City of Liverpool, having been overtaken in height by West Tower, Radio City Tower and Liverpool Cathedral.
Today the Royal Liver Building is one of the most recognisable landmarks in the city of Liverpool and is home to two fabled Liver Birds that watch over the city and the sea. Legend has it that were these two birds to fly away, then the city would cease to exist.
Visiting Liverpool at the moment staying at the Albert Dock.
A couple of Pictures from last Nights Walk.
The Albert Dock is a complex of dock buildings and warehouses in Liverpool, England. Designed by Jesse Hartley and Philip Hardwick, it was opened in 1846, and was the first structure in Britain to be built from cast iron, brick and stone, with no structural wood. As a result, it was the first non-combustible warehouse system in the world
We stayed just near this Village and who could resist taking the Red Phone Box. the stocks and the church makes it more interesting.
Witheridge is a village and civil parish in the North Devon district of Devon, England. In 2001 the population of the parish was 1162. Its name is derived from the Old English for “Weather Ridge”, probably as a result of its exposed location on the top of a hill, which means it and surrounding hamlets such as Nomansland generally suffer from poor weather for much of the year.
Situated almost equidistant from Dartmoor and Exmoor, the village has earned the nickname the Gateway to the Two Moors Way. Butcher FJP Maunder established his business in the village in 1879, which taken over by his son became local butchers chain Lloyd Maunder.
The village is twinned with Cambremer, France, and the two villages have annual exchange trips (although not solely for students).
Sacred words spoken
Two become one
A beacon of light
Shining in the darkest times
Lighting the way
The parish church of St. Etheldreda (also known as St. Audries) is situated on the outskirts of the village, close to the village hall and the wedding centre (formerly the Manor House), which provides the church with a fair number of weddings and blessings.
