Fall/Autumn has arrived :D
The calmness of autumn has finally arrived here in the small seaside town of Portishead. This is in stark contrast with the feverish activities that have been in progress for the last 3 days inside my brother's house. Stripping, packing and disposing of possessions that are going to cost more to transport than replace or are just memories of the past that are no longer needed. Yes, trashing everything is fantastic! It's with out a doubt good for the soul and also an essential part of starting new a life.

While packing I came across my Nikon D80, squirrelled away (I'm liking the whole squirrel theme right now!! and it also very seasonal!) in a box and unused ever since I bought my compact Cannon in LA - which has subsequently fallen apart. Mr Cannon will be getting a stiff letter from me when I back in the US! So, for the last few days I've been strolling around my town grabbing history to help remind me of where I've spent the last 5 years.


I also got a chance to see my two wonderfully affectionate cats who were unfortunately discarded at the beginning of the year. After a few tentative minutes both warmed up and nuzzled their way around my lower legs and hands. Hercules, the blue cat then wanted to follow me back along the woodland path to the Lake ground where I'm currently staying. As much as I would love to have him purring on my lap, I had to take him back to his new owner's cat flat :( sigh... I miss them but I have to put on a brave face and continue on my journey.

I'll be booking my tickets to leave to the US shortly. Although that doesn't mean my travels are over, I've grown addicted to travelling and I am gradually becoming more adventurous!
