Count down

(And a non monochrome post!!)

Count down to the trip begins!!  So much still to do. I’m posting less but trying to keep up.  13 days to Edinburgh!! (first stop)

We’ve had a bit of cloud lately though still warm, so while I slowly pull last minute arrangements together for abroad and at home I know it’s coming!!  I’ll be frantic in the last few days.

But there is still



And everything in between

PS: loosely quoted from Cicero and  do note Robert Marsala’s wonderful book ( In a Different Light) at the bottom right.  It’s an inspiration.

    Have the best time!!
    I love commenting on your blog, but sometimes conversation over ‘jam and tea’ would be so much nicer… 😉
    Love the pic including Robert’s book. It is a great book to sit and ponder over!
    Gorgeous pics too as always.


    1. Thanks so much Robyn and I agree!! We are miles apart sadly but you are always welcome to visit my island!! Maybe one day Australia!! I will think of you at tea and jam!! and leave you with this- “have I gone mad?
      I’m afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are.”

    I loved the feature here, Cybele.. And those words: “Sunrise, sunset… And everything in between!”… That was truly eloquent…
    I hope you have a wonderful time during your trip ahead.
    Best wishes, Aquileana 😀


    1. Oh I am getting a bit anxious with preparation! 😀 But it will be wonderful. Blessings!


  4. Stunning photos as always, Cybele, and I’m so excited for you on your upcoming trip. Can’t wait for my turn! 😉

    Always look forward to your latest offerings Cybele. Love the Ha’penny Bridge and the ball game with the jet in the background. Like one or two of your commenters I believe Edinburgh is beautiful though I’ve never been north of Hadrian’s Wall.


    1. thanks so much Roy and I love your Jersey offerings!!


  6. Gosh, I just love your photography, Cybele! I’ve always wanted to go to Scotland so be sure to take loads of photos! 😀


    1. I so appreciate comment!! Thank you and I will!!


  7. You capture such beauty with that camera of yours.
    Well, I live in the UK but have never been to Edinburgh, although would love to do so (preferably before Scotland declares independence and I need a passport to cross the border!). Edinburgh is actually 396 miles north of my town, which is a fair distance in UK terms but probably not far for someone from a country as huge as Canada.


    1. Edinburgh is a charming city nestled in the hills and on the firth of forth. If you ever get a chance to visit, do! Thank you Sarah!


  8. Wonderful photos! Have a lovely trip. 😉
