Changing Seasons – November

Ah, November. The month I dislike the most. With the changing of the clocks the days become shorter with sun sets around 16:30 by the end of the month. I keep on thinking that it won’t be long until the shortest day and then the light will last just that bit longer each day. Bird…

Except when we arrived there was a notice informing us that the ferry  garden entrance was…
