Stonechat

On our walks along the clifftop during May there’s been a couple of Stonechats that have obviously been holding territory in one of the hedgerows. As we stood on the clifftop looking at the sea, if we were quite still, they’d come alongside us to forage.

Snap me! Snap me!

This little fella just wouldn’t leave us alone as we were sea-watching the other day. He was just so desperate to have his photo taken he even hovered above us repeatedly.

Rainbow

With the relaxation of restrictions we went a little further for our shopping this last week. We went to Morissons’ in Fakenham rather than Cromer. A  few more miles but we feel it cleaner and more organised. Something that now could be said to seriously matter.

I was surprised to see we were practically the only people wearing masks and given this is supposed to protect other people rather than yourself (regardless if you believe that or not) it perhaps shows the selfishness of people. This feeling was reinforced by how reluctant people were to keep to the 2m distancing rule. Maybe they thought the easing of restrictions meant it was the beginning of the end. I feel it’s just the end of the beginning and we have a long way to go. Whichever which way, I am decidedly uncomfortable going to supermarkets. I feel uneasy given outside hospitals these spaces are perhaps the ‘petri dishes’ for contraction. Maybe it’s just me.

Anyways, I thought I would publish this photo taken in the Indian Ocean taken a few years ago. I was sailing out of Marissa in Sri Lanka on my way to hopefully find Blue Whales, when we passed a fishing Dhow topped with brightly dressed fishermen backed by a rainbow on a sea boiling with fish . Rainbows are supposed to symbolise hope. It was just a moment I thought to capture. A moment of colour. A moment of hope. The end of the beginning. I hope all my customers and followers are well and continue to be so.
