Walking along the laneway in winter, not as enjoyable as in spring when the green leafy colour lines the hedgerows and fresh scents fill the air, but still on a cold winter's day the reminders of last season's life are there.
A Peaceful Moment On a recent journey on the Irish Sea, having left port we passed a windfarm with many turbines and on the calm surface of the sea a dolphin gently breaks.
