Friday morning saw me wake to news I really did not want to hear. This isn’t going to be a political post. I haven’t calmed down enough to write a reasoned response to the result of the European Referendum. Am sure there will be one, but not yet! I woke at 4.30 am, checked my phone, realised which way the result was going and couldn’t get back to sleep. By 6.45 I had turned the telly off so I didn’t throw things at it. I couldn’t vent properly on social media as there are people who voted Leave who I don’t want to offend, despite disagreeing with their viewpoints.
Fortunately though, I had a pre-arranged plan to go out with my parents for the day. My lovely lefty, pro-EU parents, who I knew would be feeling about the same as me. We were going to visit Sculpture By The Lakes not far from me in West Dorset. And actually it was about the best thing we could have done. We didn’t quite manage to avoid ranting all together, but I know this beautiful and serene place, studded with the stunning sculptures of Simon Gudgeon, definitely lowered all of our blood pressures significantly. As did focussing on a bit of photography, a hobby that we all share. Sadly the weather could have been better from that perspective, but here are some of my favs, starting with a perfect message for that day’s mood…
Beautiful flowers busy with insects, tranquil lakes and rivers, thought-provoking and magical artworks. And all for £10 entrance each. I highly recommend a visit to this spectacular place, though I must mention kids aren’t allowed – it is strictly over 14s only!
