Last weekends wanderings........................................ and the Olympic Games

A few more images from last weekends walk along the River Weaver.
This is my little piece of Great Britain.
The opening ceremony of the Olympic Games starts in our lovely countryside.
I hope it's huge success as it's been done on a tight budget... it won't be as brash as Beijing but 15000 volunteers will be doing their best in front of an audience of billions.
Enjoy.





A quick update about Mum... her operation has been postponed ...again.
She is still in hospital and hoping it may still take place in the next few days... Me?
I feel so helpless but all your kind words have helped... thanks for that.

beautiful photographs, I especially like the bridge, and the heron in flight. Hospital systems are frought with angst unfortunately; understaffed, low on finances, running tight; you witness it all when you're involved on a patient level. While your Mum is kept there at least she is being supervised and hopefully her surgery will be re-scheduled very soon. Best wishes...

Sorry about your mom. It always seems more difficult when things get postponed.

That's too bad about the postponement. Hopefully, soon.

I heard the opening ceremonies were a big success! Congrats!

Love the photos, especially the heron and that bridge! Beautiful countryside.
