Quarr Abbey revisited

Charlie and I went for a one and a half hour walk today in the pouring rain to Quarr Abbey again.  Yesterday the lanes were  muddy and very wet, today, due to it having rained all night and was continuing to rain, the paths were like rivers!!!  Nevertheless, we just waded through them.  I took a few different paths today and saw 5 Little Egrets in one field, 2 Pheasants in another and a horse with 6 Pied Wagtails feeding around its hooves in a third field.  On the way home, we disturbed a Jay on a tree as we  passed by.

In the afternoon, I went with the family to the Shanklin Theatre to see my granddaughter perform in the I.O.W. Musical Dance Festival.  She had already performed a Modern dance on the Saturday which I missed when she came second.  This afternoon her dancing school were performing a group ballet.  The vivid red costumes complimented the very professional execution of this piece and they gained first place.  Later on she danced a solo ballet in which she gained second place.  This photo is of her taken in her Tutu by her Dad.   He is a professional photography at
