6th October, 2013... evening sunsets and wetter weather!

It has felt quite mild this week, with day- time temperatures of 15 degrees celsius and lovely autumnal evenings. Very quiet down at the Abbey today!

It did flood down here on Friday, and the trusty Steve Hillman camera was out like a shot!!
But the weather allows spectacular views from the quarry every evening....
...that's Frankie and his cheesy 'trick shots'!
Have been reading the poem 'The Lady of Shalott' with my class this week....they did find it rather chilling...especially when the Lady dies in the funeral barge... it would have been really spooky to come into Abbot's Wood to read it... and that got me thinking... we need to fetch our pupils down here to do some atmospheric reading and writing Mrs. Hill...?
Really unusual to see the Yew trees in full flower and fruit...and they are highly toxic so beware!
More autumnal shots from the magic camera of Steve Hillman!!
We saw this guy walking two huskies/malmutts?.. and it reminded me of that book by Dr. Mark Rowlands...'The philosopher and the wolf'. It is the most life changing book I have ever read and I would recommend it so much to anyone ( I am on my sixth reading so far!!).
That's how good the Steve Hillman camera is... this was miles away!! Oh, and Joel, I promised I'd put you on the blog this week, after you worked so hard for us in here you are!!
