N is for Night Sky

We had some pretty spectacular sunsets when we were living in the cottage.
We would look out over open fields of crops and watch the sun disappear behind a single tree and the outline of the farmhouse half a mile across the way.

Obviously the landscape here in the marina is totally different.
The fields opposite have sheep in them, and the farmer herds them up in his Toyota truck even though he has two sheep dogs to do the job.
Instead of a road separating us, we have the river, and apart from the bleating of these woolly four-legged clouds, there is little noise here.
A couple of nights ago Hubby tried to take some pictures of the night sky in silhouette but it was too dark and all he got were the blobs of light from the pontoon bollards.
We walked Maggie earlier last night (9.45) and I took these pictures across both basins.

The longest day isn’t that far away.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
