    I wandered lonely as a cloud, part four. 11th Oct 16 at 8:07 AM
    Just round the corner from where I live.

    During WW2, a German fighter bomber attacked an anti-aircraft battery on the hill above my house. One of the aircraft's machine gun bullets hit the far side of the signpost, passing right through and making a larger exit hole facing the camera.

    This cheeky squirrel was making a racket, but was rather camera shy.

    Coming home.

    I've been looking for a decent secure lockup for the Money Pit.

    Across the great divide to Wales beyond.

    The estuary mouth and the Atlantic beyond.

    Over the hedge.

    Another view with Wales in the distance.

    The leaves are changing ...

    and Autumn is on its way.

    Her Maj was in her garden, a-waving out to passers by.

    The way to school.

    I love old churches.

    Monks Steps. I bain't going up there!

    Talk about steep. I kept expecting to hear Dvorak's pastoral symphony whilst a kid on a bread bike pedalled past me.

    That hill was steeper than I remember, but the view was worth it.

    Heading back home on top of the ridge, whilst keeping a wary eye out for traffic.

    A view towards the Mendips with a young chap in the foreground playing the ancient Scottish game of Swish-Buggrit, named after the sound often heard when a player slices a shot.

    Rowan tree, red thread, holds the witches all in dread.

    Another view across to the Mendips.

    One of the locals having a picnic.

    The old windmill.

    The edge of an old quarry. My house is somewhere down there beneath the trees on the right.

    I wonder where that goes.

    Ah, it goes down there ...

    ... and comes out by the church where I married my Lovely Cousin.

    After that it was another ten minutes along the main street and home in time for tea.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.
