Getting up early

About the only advantage of jet lag that I can see is early morning walks. I'm waking up about 5am, bright and ready to go. This morning was so fresh.

There's something about the pace of walking that suits me, particularly when it gives the chance to spot exciting foreign things, such as this letterbox. I'll never again laugh at the things tourists take pictures of at home, but isn't it beautiful?




And the walk took me through the cemetery. I know it's because of the hill but I loved how these graves were lined up ...




.. almost as if the inhabitants could admire the view.



Mind you, it was about the only view I could see around here that wasn't of a corn field!



And here's where I was heading. It was well worth the early start. I wish I could have taken a sound picture, the birds, the insects, the water lapping and nothing, nothing else! This is really a beautiful place.

Any sheds in the area?

Oh Alex, there is such a shed right here in the garden. A feast of a shed. I'll take some pictures and send it to you.
