I still haven’t tried to trace the missing post, but I have solved my focus problem. I had it on “P”, which was Programmed Automatic on the last camera. Not sure what it is on the new one but setting it to “A” solves the focus issues – it works fine now.
We have been in Wales for the last couple of days. Sunday was mainly travel. Monday was mainly low visibility and wet. Tuesday was very pleasant but we spent half the day travelling back. It’s the first time we;ve been away since lockdown and it was very pleasant. The only problem is that accomodation has gone up. We may have to start looking at B&B instead of cheap hotels. The main advantages of cheap hotels are the ability to come and go as you want, and you know what you are getting before you arrive. When we used to use B&B the accommodation could sometimes be a bit of a shock. As could the landladies.
We have been having the all you can eat breakfasts again – yoghurt, fruit, cereal, toast and drinks is £7.50 and with the addition of a full breakfast only costs £2 more. That’s sausage, bacon, egg, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, black pudding, hash browns for £2 extra. I don’t actually eat all I can, but I do eat enough to last me through the day.
We ate at 9.00 this morning, had tea and cake when we visited the posh farm shop at lunchtime them had soup at 8.00 tonight when we got home. We didn’t really need the cake I suppose, but I do like fruit loaf and it seemed rude not to have the bara brith seeing as we were in Wales. Having said that, my Mum had several similar recipes, including one that featured grape nuts cereal soaked in tea. I used to make it too. As usual, I didn’t make a conscious effort to stop, it’s just one of those things that petered out.
I seem to have lost the habit of taking photos. I do have a few but haven’t taken them off the card yet. So photos are from old visits. It hasn’t changed much since the 1890s, apart from the cars, so it doesn’t really need new photos.
I like your philosophy on not having to take photos of things that you have already photographed. Sadly I am addicted to taking pictures of things that I have photographed dozens of times already and any change of plan would wreck my whole way of life.
Yours is a good philosophy too – there is always some new angle or lighting to record.
You say Wales, and I think that the royal children had to change their last name from Cambridge to Wales.
All these titles are so confusing. 🙂
Well done sorting out the focussing. I don’t know what my P is either, but it has had disastrous results. You prompted me to look at mine, and would you believe it, it was on P. So thanks for saving my next disaster,
🙂 I am going to look it up on the internet when I get a few minutes.
As far as I remember I got a slow moving image
Bara brith sounds good, with quite a bit of room for variations according to personal taste.
The palm tree in the photo was interesting Is it that mild there in Llandudno?
We have quite a lot of palms around the coast, even in Scotland. It may be more about palms being hardier than we think, rather than the climate.
Thanks for the link. Quite a few there that survive below zero weather.
They are remarkable plants. 🙂
Good to be out and about, I bet, after being confined for so long. Never heard of bara brith. Would love to try some.
It was nice to get out. Last week I thought about Covid a bit. but this week it didn’t even enter my head. Looks like I’m back to “normal”.
I’m not there yet. Hoping to be soon.
Take your time. I didn’t have a plan, it just happened.
