Here I am with my Instagram shots for the week. It's been quite a week for taking photos. I'll start off with a few more photos from my walk on Monday.
Sir Henry Rider Haggard stayed at North Lodge for a time. He wrote King Solomon's Mines, amongst other things.
Literally a few steps around the corner from North Lodge is this plaque to commemorate Alan Turing. His story is tragic - he was an immensely talented man who helped the Second World War effort considerably with his code breaking skills. Being a homosexual was illegal in the 50's and given the choice of prison or chemical castration (with female hormones) after being charged with 'indecency', he went for chemical castration in 1952. He ended his own life in 1954. So terribly sad.

|Another lovely sunset!|
We spent the weekend with the hubby's parents in London. We didn't do much, other than watching tv and going out for a walk to clear my head yesterday lunch time as I was feeling ill. I think I might be coming down with a cold. We watched Brave last night, which was really good.

|Lovely dockside apartments.|
|Hubby with a huge leaf.|

Any big plans for this week? Tell me, I'm nosey!
