    Thank you, think I had a sassy Saturday and now enjoying a sunny Sunday myself. But, do you know, looking again at this photo, I'm not sure now whether it is Norfolk or the river in Dalyan, Turkey. I took plenty of photos in both places and there ...

    Haha. Maybe I do need to re-interpret how I view the level of fluid in my glass! That looked like Cyprus to me - Mediterranean blue - otherwise I wouldn't have made my anti-romantic attempt at humour.

    Shame on you, David! Time to think more positively, methinks. 'Twas a tranquil place and part of a much larger tranquil place on the Broads.

    Interesting and very well written blog, Richard. You have certainly done the author proud. I had not heard of him either, but then sci-fi is not something that has ever appealed to me. Pavane it appears from your description and extracts in a ...

    This photo has brought back memories of a few days spent in Paris some years ago. Well composed scene. Must have been an interesting and, perhaps, fun place in which to research. Is the novel complete or still a wip>

      Jill Good morning, David. Definitely real specs, which I am pleased with. Hadn't needed new for five years, so good to have a change of style with the frames. Hope all is well with you. Jx

    We did love the sea but sadly we don't live there anymore, had to move back to the city. But luckily there is a river not to far away my dog can swim in.

    Thanks for the kind words xxx
