Approaching Darkness
Sunset in Halong Bay, Vietnam.

I haven't been out with the camera for weeks now due to the bad weather which is forecast to continue for at least another week, so this is another one from my files.

I sat here at sunset a long long time ago
brought along a book and embroidery to sew
the scene was so beautiful that I slowly fell asleep
when I woke up oh dear ... it was dark as I did peep
only the stars to guide me back to my dark bedroom
the lights would not work as I fumbled in the gloom
I tripped and stubbed my toe and fell into the bed
what I mumbled under my breath is best left unsaid !

here in this fantastic dusk image with excellent colour, lighting,

Thanks, Dave. Yes, I'll probably do that, keep a free account. Just now I need to rest and recover from all the importing before tackling reading what I have to do to change to free account. I hope it's simple for eyes have more or less had it for a while.

alas the clouds are coming this way
more rain will fall come what may
marmalade with whisky sounds good to me
I've got the toaster ready please send is my plea
some marmalade would be oh so nice
but is it expensive what is the price ;-)
by carrier pigeon it will have to arrive
that makes a change and would be a surprise
so keep stirring the mix in the jam pan
I can smell it wafting on the winds its grand ;-)

Yes, can't wait for these 2 days of weather to be behind us. They're busy pumping out flood water from around water works down the hill that they're worried about, not where our water comes from though the same company. I suppose its our rain that runs down there. I was imagining my sister with no power in Swansea but had a brief email from her this morning and she's going to be ringing bells for a wedding today and is pitying the bride. Well, I suppose it is St. Valentines day.

do we always do what we are told ;-)
oh this storyline could unfold !
a pee is a pea but what is a bean
perhaps been if you know what I mean ;-)
but all this washing of hands won't do
there is no time to visit the loo
what's one to do I've not a clue
I think I'll just perhaps follow you ;-)
thank goodness we have separate loos
not like some places which are for both of you ;-)
oh my goodness where does this all lead
back to the sink to wash hands indeed ;-)


*

the wind is now getting up and the rain has started to
pour down and so its now sit and wait and hope that
perhaps it won't be as bad as they say but somehow
I think it will be, they have not been wrong yet ... I hope
you have plenty of bread so that you can have marmalade
on toast,marmalade bread and butter pudding ;-) marmalade
sandwiches, marmalade roly poly, there is always some
marmalade chutney I am sure ;-) and what about on crackers ;-)
waiting for the carrier pigeon but somehow I think he might
get blown off course and so where will he end up ;-)
keep warm and dry Dave and hope the power stays on
at least you can watch the tv ;-) the weather forecast of course ;-)

This is a dream shot...such a wonderful capture with gorgeous framing. I feel my wings and I fly to this gorgeous place :)
It's still raining in Luxembourg too and when we go out to feet the birds, we have to put on rubber boots...I hope we don't will need a boat soon.
