Merry Christmas

An Unexpected Visitor.


What a lovely winter's day it has been. The sun shone, the frost sparkled and there was no wind. Yes, it was very cold and the frost hardly lifted all day. It was too cold for any gardening, so I spent some time on the river bank. I really went to watch the ducks but was pleased to see an Otter. There are otters on the river but they are usually seen further downstream. However, this afternoon the tide was high but very still - the surface was reflecting everything from the clouds in the sky to the houses on the opposite bank. A series of ripples indicated the presence of something different. Then this beautiful otter came to the surface, really quite close to our bank side - it was quite happy swimming lazily in the sunshine.

Of course I didn't have the camera and by the time I'd rushed up to the house and back again, the otter was too far away. It swam around a little longer before heading back downstream. A truly magical moment - right place at the right time - but no camera!!



Still looking for that elusive Christmas present for the person who has everything? Why not buy a gift token towards the cost of a holiday at Railway Cottages. Just let me know how much you wish to spend and I will mail out the voucher, either to yourself or direct to the recipient. Don't delay to ensure delivery before Christmas.
