New Horizons

The horizon leans forward, offering you space to place new steps of change

Maya Angelou

This weeks photo challenge at the Daily Post has been set by Krista, very timely in these last few weeks of a turbulent year.

Here in my photo, some are strolling, some swimming towards, some catching a wave away from the horizon.

How about you, will you stride towards the future with positivity, or wallow in a mire of indifference?

 

It’s beginning . . .

I can’t avoid it now.

But as I’ve done the majority of my Christmas shopping I feel quite smug this year, I’m not usually this organised. I haven’t even thought about cards though, oh well, I can’t get everything right.

One of my favourite things about Christmas is going to see the lights in town. Exeter’s are rather modest compared to the big cities, but they’re still magical to me.

I went to town for an after work browse at the shops, this is the High Street.

Then it was time for supper, we wandered around trying to decide where to eat. There’s a whole new bunch of chain restaurants recently opened in the Guildhall, much needed, there were so few choices before – she says with tongue firmly fixed in cheek! We checked the menus of half a dozen, before returning to a favourite, Bill’s. It’s always tasty and the atmosphere is lively but early in the evening, it isn’t too manic. Walking back through town afterwards, a last look at the pretties.

hs7To see some really stunning Christmas lights, you really should pop over to visit Rommel, he’s in Japan.
