Lee Abbey sunset

So, that was my holiday journal... I took so many photos! I hope I haven't been boring about it. I wanted my own record of a very enjoyable 'grand tour' of the south west of England  - and anyway, I haven't been taking many pictures at home recently.

Finally, just because I can't not show this - here is another sunset shot, taken during the time I was at Lee Abbey, Devon. The sun drops down over Lee Bay into the sea and each night it looks different, depending on the cloud cover. Irresistible to watch - and to photograph. It was like having your very own light show, night after night. As the sun neared the sea, it seemed to change shape from a sphere to an oval. Absolutely compelling. It seemed as if there should be a symphony playing but instead all was quiet. Even the people watching stopped talking and simply enjoyed one of the masterpieces of God's creation. Such peace.

"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of anyone, 
I shall feel that I have worked with God."
G K Chesterton


  1. A "touch of rosy sunset" is just what I need this morning. Much appreciated.

  2. I've enjoyed every bit of your holiday!

  3. Thanks for sharing your beautiful travels, and this is a sunset to remember!

  4. Very nice shot, almost looks as if the sky was on fire.

  5. I have been very poor at looking at blogs and even worse with commenting. My eye sight and computers don’t always cooperate. So today, I’ll stop by and say hello and copy this note into the comments. Some of you are on Facebook or Instagram, but many aren’t. As I’ve said all along, I’ve met wonderful people blogging. Your grandchildren are beautiful....the sunsets outstanding. I hope we meet someday! Until then, I’ll keep enjoying your posts!

  6. NOT boring at all. Just splendid. Thank you for the holiday journal.
