Home from London

I've been in London, visiting family, friends, shopping and playing with a new phone! A lot of playing. I can't stop picking it up. I'm half terrified and half fascinated at all the wonderful things it can do. I've never had a smartphone. It's much smarter than I am. Jo and I on a cold platform waiting for the train. We'd been to Ikea at Croydon. I've never been to Ikea without a car! We didn't buy any flat packed furniture.
David Hockney at the Tate was absolutely brilliant and amazing and inspirational
Now I'm home again and this morning I took my phone to the bottom of the garden...I did think about using google maps to get down there but thought that might be a bit excessive..! Our little house still holds on, waiting for a new roof and some TLC.
After all the hustle and bustle of London and awful events of last week it was a joy to sink into the peace and quiet and abundance of overgrown wilderness, tumble down trees, rocks and seaweed  at the end of the garden
An abandoned caravan. It belonged to a lovely lady who used to use it as her bathing hut. Sadly she is no longer with us and the mice have moved in and others by the look of it who enjoy a wee dram!
Another little house like ours. They're dotted about the highlands, simple and robust  constructed  using local stone. There will never be a shortage of stone here.
These rocks at the bottom of a our garden on the shore have the most beautiful iridescent colours. The tide comes in and covers them twice a day
This tree bleached by the weather is completely white. It's a work or art to be walked around and enjoyed
And,that is just what me and my smart phone did!

My smart phone can do many t hi vs, but it spends most of its time turned off at the bottom of my purse.

Wonderful Annie! Glad you have a smartphone at last! You won't be able to put it down! Also pleased to read you've had a trip to London, although very saddened by that terrible incident. Thank goodness for your tranquility. XX

I got myself an IPhone this past year and I am loving it! I'm glad you had a good trip down to London and even got a visit to Ikea. My favorite picture here is the tree in the boat one ... fantastic!

Those rocks are astonishing colours. I wonder if I passed you at the Hockney. I people watch almost as much as art watch at exhibitions. His iPad pictures had me experimenting with the Brushes app. It's difficult!
