Weekend walks

Firstly, thank you to all of you who gave me your thoughts and advice on smartphones.

Isaac gave me a beautiful secondhand one while I was in Boulder and I love it.

It is twice as big as my crappy old stupid one (as in not smart) and texting on it is a dream, even with my fat fingers.

I am using it for phoning, texting, maps and taking photographs, and nothing else. I am not putting Twitter on it or any games at all, because I don't want to be addicted to my phone. I may put an app on to measure how far I've been on my bike, but that's it.

This is me unlocking it to take a photograph:

The Aging Hippie took the picture. She's been staying here since Thursday, which is why I have not blogged. 

Here she is enjoying a cream tea on Friday. These yanks love cream teas. It's hard to persuade Karen to eat anything but scones while she's here.  

We've been out for a long walk every day and here are some of the photos I've taken:

Can you tell the difference between these and the ones you've seen up to now, taken with my tiny camera?

Beautiful autumnal photos Sue. I do think the autumn colours are particularly spectacular this year, or do I always think that? I can't distinguish between HD & regular television so not the one to comment on picture clarity! Love the photo of your friend - she looks so happy 😊 Sally

Thanks, Sally. I think the colours are much better this year because the autumn fading is slower than last year. Last year the frosts came suddenly and everything was over within such a short space of time. Also, I believe that when it's been a long hot summer, it has a visible effect on the autumn leaves - something to do with sugar? Perhaps a horiculturalist will enlighten us.....

Thank you, Ana. Yes, we are so lucky to live here.
