A travelling day

Recently I have been invited to join an exhibiting group of artists. I was overjoyed and excitingly accepted, the meeting today was at Penny's house which is in the heart of the Hampshire (UK) countryside. As I have a new camera, I decided to try it out on the way. These pictures were taken from a moving car on the motorway. It was a glorious bright late morning, as you can see from the sky.

When we headed south, we saw some WW2 flying spitfires overhead, but I was not quick enough to catch them on camera. Apparently today is the 70th birthday of the spitfires and they were having a celebratory flypast over Southampton.

The meeting was excellent and we discussed exhibition venues etc. over a fabulous lunch. When it was time to come home, the clouds started rolling in and it was getting darker.

Husband had taken the adolescent puppy to the New Forest for a run, whilst I was at the meeting, and had encountered a hail storm there, and the sky seemed to be threating us with another on the way home.

Luckily though by the time we got closer to home the threat had disappeared. we arrived home safe and sound with an exhausted but happy puppy. A lovely day.
