Our Sunday Afternoon


 What we did today.

Well Karen and I decided this afternoon that as it was a lovely bright, but windy, day we would go out.  We decided to visit Eglinton Country Estate.  So off we went. 
I spotted this unusual lamp at the entrance. (see that blue sky).


We weren't really dressed for a walk in the mud - and it was fairly muddy - but we persevered, even when it started raining 
We kept going for a wee while until it got heavy when we decided to cut our losses and head back to the car.
By the time we got to the car the rain had eased off a wee bit and we saw this lovely rainbow.


And then the heavens opened - but all was not lost I quite liked the rain on the window and thought it might make a different kind of picture.

 Then we drove back to town to go and see Emma at her work (she works as a waitress in a cafe/restuarant)  When we got there she was just finished her shift so we stayed and I had a very lovely coffee.

And the girls had a lemonade.

So all in all it wasn't a bad day.

The End, lol

Hope you all had a good Sunday.

I love that lamp - it's a beautiful fixture. I also like seeing all of the cobblestone buildings. We don't see that very often here and the really are beautiful buildings. Your latte looks yummy - I had a skinny mocha today at Starbucks which was was good - but not as pretty as yours.
