For one of the Flickr groups I belong to I had to take a photograph of something ‘old and new’.
Then yesterday, whilst pulling up errant weeds amongst the stones in the gravel path I found a partial ammonite. So my idea was to take photo of the ancient ammonite and a very new five pence piece.

It is time to replace the Coffee Blog - don't worry, it will come back! lol
Several things have contributed to this blog: a comment from Ylee in the last blog, and the slow recovery of my calf strain/ hamstring/whatever, resulting in not getting out to take photos, further than my own "Yarden".

You have been very complimentary of the images I posted of my mini trip to the south coast, and even though the weather did not put on its Sunday best clothing for me, I had a relaxing time.
Before I finally leave the south coast and the photos I took, here are a few more, to round off the trip.
This was the Guest House. A very impressive Edwardian house, with huge rooms and high ceilings. I was tucked away in the o...
