Thatched Roof Thursday Revisited

Stoneleigh Village
I had an opportunity to drive through this
lovely village yesterday.  So I took the opportunity to look at
a couple of thatched roof cottages I photographed in 2013.


The house on the right (above) was
#33 in my Thatched Roof Thursday series.
If you look in the distance (above),
you'll see #43 (also below).
Not much has changed over the last 4 years.


Stoneleigh Village is beautiful.  It is very close to
Coventry and if you have a spare few £s,
my #43 is For Sale :).

The Flying Scotsman

Today at Cathiron Bridge

Popular trainspotting location midway between
Nuneaton and Rugby on the West Coast Main Line.


Built in 1923, The Flying Scotsman is an icon of the steam age.

My husband (red jacket collar) joined quite a few more
to catch a glimpse as it passed by.  Not far from where we live :).

The Lamp

Bayley Lane, Coventry


Bayley Lane is a narrow street between
Coventry Cathedral ruins and St Mary's Hall.
I took this photograph in 2013 and
I can say that this Lane looks just the same today.

Coombe Abbey Hotel


As seen from Coombe Country Park this afternoon.

Greetings!  I am busy organizing photographs 
(if that is possible) and that is basically why I have
been absent from blog posting.  It takes time.  But....
today we went for a walk at Coombe Country Park
and I really like this view of Coombe Abbey Hotel.

So here it is :).

A Surprise

Coombe Country Park

Coombe Abbey Hotel is in the background.
(Look at the tree stump.)


A daffodil bulb has found an unusual home.
What a surprise :).



Have a good weekend !

And, Happy Birthday to Aunt Blanche !!

Coombe Country Park
Bird Hide


I have only seen this bird once at Coombe Country Park (so far).


If I see another one, I hope to get some clearer images.

The Footbridge

Coombe Country Park


The photograph above was taken on a very
dull day in February, 2017.

The photograph below was taken yesterday
following a wedding at Coombe Abbey Hotel, I'm guessing.
The wedding photographs will undoubtedly include
a nice aerial video of the hotel and park grounds.
