The morning turned out to be dry, albeit quite overcast and windy.
We walked into town, had coffee and almond biscotti then went down to the library to choose a couple of books each; enough to see us through the next few wet and windy days. On the way back we squeezed down the very narrow lane / ginnel / twitten to take a look at the old post boxes on the wall - one for each monarch's reign.
After lunch the sky brightened up so we went for a walk. A circular route up behind the house then along the lane that runs between the tram track and the woods . Plenty of fallen leaves to kick our way through.
Later on, as dusk fell, I happened to look out of the window and caught the last gasp of what had been a vividly colourful sunset.
Just managed to snap it in time...
