Saturday 29th – Monday 31st October   Leave a comment

I am falling behind with my blog entries and need a multi day catch up!

On Saturday evening Margaret and I spent a very enjoyable evening with at Gio and Jessica’s my former work colleagues Ann and Val and their partners. Gio and Jessica cooked a lovely Italian meal and the wine flowed freely.

 

 

Clockwise from the front: Val Hunt, Terry Hunt, Jessica Pietrangelo, Giovanni Pietrangelo, Chris Bunn, Ann Bunn and Margaret.

 

 

Their little dog Gypsy kept us amused.

 

 

 

On Sunday morning Margaret and I went to Blandford to look for the Otters that have been seen regularly. There now  appears to be nine or more Otters along the river Stour either side of Blandford, and several can be easily seen from the blue footbridge that crosses the Stour by Morrisons. Although not always on show they seem used to passers-by.

Unfortunately as soon as we got there it started raining and as it was very dull photography wasn’t practical. Two Otters showed well after about an hour of waiting. I have included one photo of the river taken a couple of days later and a shot of an Otter by Kevin Lane taken the following day.

Monday evening was of course Halloween. I usually avoid all the trick-and-treaters but this year the grandchildren were taking part and Margaret was armed with a huge bowl of sweets!
