Photo of the week

It’s been quite a hectic week. But I did manage to go running on Thursday, for the first time in about three years. Which is kind of a big thing for me, so hopefully I can make it a regular part of my schedule.

In lieu of any form of intelligent post, here’s a photo of Clarence the Polar Bear. He arrived with the postman this morning after I’d sent off a wad of tokens to a well know frozen food company. You don’t want to know how may fish fingers I had to eat. Anyway, here he is.

Delicious salad with nasturtium flowers

Mmmmm.... delicious!

As part of my drive to eat more healthily, I’ve been trying to make the most of the things I grow in the garden. Here’s a salad I made from salad leaves and nasturtium flowers, dressed simply with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a little freshly ground black pepper. Just as quick to make as cheese on toast – and much more healthy.

Sunset at Thurlestone Beach

Sunset at Thurlestone Beach

I took this picture just before sunset at Thurlestone Beach in South Devon. We’d been playing with the dog for an hour or so while watching the kite surfers do their thing. Watching the sun go down was the perfect end to the day.

N.B. Regular readers will notice that this Friday slot has evolved slightly from its previous incarnation as ‘Gratuitous Labrador photo of the week’. While my furry orange sidekick is still just as photogenic as before, I’ve decided to broaden my repertoire a little. Though I’m sure I’ll still manage to sneak in the odd photo of Molly from time to time.
