My blog is mostly about wildlife, particularly birds, walking, days out, all growing things and anything else that comes to mind.

 13 and 14 November 2023 - Halong Bay, Vietnam

Well, I returned to the UK last Monday (27 November) after having been away in Vietnam and Cambodia for about 17 days Unfortunately, I wasn't well for the last 5 days of the holiday and still not quite back to normal yet either. This has delayed the processing of many many pictures I took but at least some are now done.

One of the highlights within the first 4 days of arriving in Vietnam was an overnight 'cruise' on the Halong Bay.. Remarkable sights and amazing place to be. Sadly it was very dull and overcast while we were there

Black Kites were our constant companions flying high over the tops of the limestone mountains, the mountains have been evolving over thousands of years !
There was also another low flying bird which I have yet to identify!

Claremont Gardens - revisted

 I went back to Claremont Gardens in intense September heat.
I was there with a very special friend of many years, and we had an amazing peaceful day and so relaxing.

It was lovely to be back after all the years away from the area!

Polesden Lacey on a sunny June day

 Today I met a very special friend at one of our favourite haunts.  June is the season of roses and this June the display of them in the Rose Garden at Polesden was one of the best we'd seen!

Just a few pics and the flutter is a Marbled White!

Such a lovely day... here's to the next one, and thank you IHD for your company as always!
