The current photo theme being ‘Down’ comes when I am up to my ears and up to too many other things (but not up to no good) to really get down to it. However, my favourite down which gives me an upper is from home to the beach. Let me find a random one of hundreds of pictures taken involving the supreme effort of taking a few steps out of the lounge to take this rather impressive pond which takes up the bottom of the garden. Very taking. No mis-taking, that! 

          Of course, the ‘Down’ most in my thoughts at the moment has a TON of interest attached. I think I am going to be severely hooked on the Downton series – and I don’t DO television. Well, not normally.

    What an amazing view, you lucky man. Also watched the first episode of Downton and am thoroughly hooked. We are so starved of really good entertainment on TV.

    What a gorgeous photo Col! I am also sure you never feel down when you are there. 🙂


  6. OOH! Downton Abbey is well worth your time! Hubs and I are loving it! If you have the ocean at the bottom of your garden, then I am coming for a LOOOOOONG visit! Got a spare room? Besides, doesn’t our poetry collaboration project demand a little face-to-face one-on-one time? Maybe it could be a business expense?
