Another lovely day.
We wished our daughter a very happy birthday
The English couple left today, the German woman on her own was going South, she was interested in Flamingos, so we suggested Saint Maries. She wondered if the poor tabby cat had had his tail trimmed in the French poodle style. R not amused.
a red VW campervan turned up with a v clever registration> One of the owners said it was an easy one to remember.
We walked along the canal in the morning, much more traffic today, quite a few out on their Sunday constitutionals. Though why have music blaring as you cycle along the path? We walked to the grain silo, and then back by the road to home. On the road back we passed a new poplar tree plantation, maize and sorghum.
In the afternoon I went for a walk to the campsite lake, spent a little time snoozing in the sun, and then played with the camera. I experimented with photo stacking for different focus points. Eventually that worked out so I was able to take some reasonable flower shots which were in focus.
Walked back up to the campsite, passing the football site.
Lovely evening with blue sky and vapour trains. The sparrows were in full volume, and some bats came out to play.
Some Germans arrived in their van after dark at 20.38, directed in by R.
Tonight’s dinner was green beans, sausages, tomato and onion, and a bottle of fizzy pink.
