Mission accomplished



We're now back from our lovely break in Norfolk, and thank goodness there was a small window in the weather on Thursday, when the sun came out and so did the Swallowtail butterflies. Patience paid off and my OH got this lovely shot.

I did do some creative stuff while away, but it's all WIP so I will post it up later. In the meantime here's some textural shots I took on the day we went sight seeing.

This is a close-up of an eel catcher's basket that we saw in the 'Toad Hall' cottage, I really liked the spots on the cane work.



And this one is one of the cogs on a windmill that we think was used to pump water.



I loved the green moss on this one and the textures.



This is the windmill that the cogs were photographed from.
