Have you visited England in summertime? I hope so.
If you arrived from the North American continent, and perhaps some other locations,
you will have noticed how the evenings remain light and bright until quite late.
Sunrise is also very early, around 5 AM, so the days are exceptionally long and lovely.
I really enjoy that when I go home at this season.
Having more hours of daylight to enjoy walking and nighttime amusements is
Sightseeing, beach going, drinking a cool glass of wine and dining
al fresco in late day sunlight, walking through flowering gardens, sauntering
along the cliff walks, taking a ferris wheel ride . . . watching the sun set, then
street lamps turn on, all quite different when this occurs late in the evening.
Twilight arrives - the perfect blue hour.
All these photos were taken late afternoon into the evening in Torquay on different
days when we were out and about . . . . . . after the crowds had disappeared.
The last one below is from the windows of the cottage where we stayed - the
street lights came on just as we arrived back after walking along the beach road
one particularly balmy evening.
Hope you enjoy seeing my beautiful home town. . . .
and there will be more!
