Continuing to post old pictures from Septembers past, this is the first one from 2008.
One of the loveliest things we’ve been enjoying on our rambles around Farnham is the golden warm tones of the sun on the grass and trees, complemented by the cool tones of the lowering sky and clouds.
We passed by various farms…
From the train station in Guildford we made it across the River Wey and up Pewley Hill for some magnificent vistas.
Out for a walk with our US guests I was struck by the spire of the local church against the dramatic sky.
Most of the University is off limits to students over the summer bu the library is still open. Leaving it one cloudy day I saw this shot of the dramatic sky through a kind of skylit walkway with the actual sky above and quickly grabbed a couple of shots. I then walked through the quad and saw another, kind of ominous view, below.
The next day we took the train to North Berwick, a coastal town in East Lothian. Here are a couple shots taken from the train window.

A shot grabbed at high speed from the train window taking us back from our day in Bruges to Brussels.
Our final day as a group (26th May) and we ate dinner together at the Blue Bar down by the shore in Porthtowan.
The tide was out and we explored some caves. If viewing in email, click the post title to click into the images and see them larger.
After dinner we explored the beach and seashore. Click any image to see them all enlarged to full size.
William Shakespeare – King Lear Act 3 Scene 4 the blasted heath
Tom’s a-cold,– O, do de, do de, do de. Bless thee from whirlwinds, star-blasting, and taking! Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes: there could I have him now,–and there,–and there again, and there.
I’m not quite sure the picture conveys the magical depth of the 2 little clouds’ appearance within the larger white cloud. It looked special at the time.
