Miles away

37/52 for the group 2018 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: M is for Miles Away

A quick shot from our walk yesterday. I'm not likely to get anything better this week, so this shot of a distant mountain peak just about visible above the hills will have to do.

I've missed posting a few. I have been taking at least a couple of photos each week, but haven't been able to stick to the topics. If I can tear myself away from FB and Twitter, I'll sort out the missing weeks tomorrow morning.

Mountain peak miles away

I don't know why events have to bunch themselves together, but after being away last weekend for the protest march, I have a family funeral tomorrow and then we're away for the week in Mid-Wales, doing more exploration and taking of photos for G's geology book.

The funeral is for my cousin, who is only 4 years older than me. She had been ill with cancer for a while, so I had been warned that the end was expected. My cousin never married and we lost touch years ago, apart from the annual Christmas card, so I feel quite detached from her death, though obviously it's sad and brings back memories of when I did see her more often.

It will be a very small gathering, just four cousins and a couple of friends. I'll find out tomorrow what is being done about clearing her bungalow, though I believe the solicitor is handling all that.
