all blogged out

no, not a scene from the valley but an image of the stunning beauty of Monet's lily pond at Giverny which we visited on our recent travels via Santander, Haro, Alquezar, Rodes, Apchat and Chevreuse. It is reassuring somehow to see how similar our own beautiful valley can be to Giverny. And to realise that Monet was truly the father of digital photography.

What with the wind and rain, poorly knees and Harriet managing to cut her hind leg badly it is time to take a break from blogging for a bit.

If you are visiting the blog for the first time there are many pictures of the Tamar valley and its flora and fauna within the blog, best viewed by using the labels in the list on the left hand side of this page, or by searching on a specific word or phrase.

We will be back when we are all strong enough to go for a proper walk!


  1. What fine photos to temporarily sign off with.

    Look forward to you all getting back to full fitness.

  2. Hope you all recover soon-I will miss looking for the valley photos and the up!

  3. Spot and OH:

    Hope you had a delightful vacation! How wonderful that you saw Giverny! Last week my mother and I went to NYC to the Museum of Modern Art to see the Monet exhibit...awe inspiring to see his waterlilies triptych--took up the whole room! I am going to post about it next week and hope you can tune in!
    My eldest daughter has been in firce high school tennis competitions for the past few weeks but I managed to get a blog post up!
    Heal well and join us again soon--my favorite Spot romping is Fall in Tamar!
