A Sip of Wine and a Sunset


Sitting on our front verandah this evening and sipping wine, this scene greeted us. I took the photo with my phone. Cheers – to life and to sunsets.


About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a deep love for nature and open spaces and one of my great loves in life is sketching, particularly in pen and water colour and occasionally in pencil. I’m quite new at the art and I sketch mainly from photographs I’ve taken, but also enjoy outdoor sketching. My sketchbooks, although no great shakes, are important to me and I decided to create my blog in order to share some of their contents with those who may be interested.

      Thanks Sally. It’s one of those wonderful Summer evenings we have here.


      • Makes me want to visit again! By the way, enjoy London when the time comes next month. πŸ™‚

        Thank you. Yes, we can’t wait. I just love it there. My sons were telling me that it’s pretty cold there now so we’re preparing for the change. It’s quite a shock going from what is essentially a tropical climate to that of England. But nothing will stop us from going. Beautiful country.

    Looks goooooooood. Sunset and wine, two great spirits.

    In contrast, the sun is just beginning to set, though I doubt we’ll see it tonight. We’re being hit with snow squalls and streamers coming off the great lakes -intermittent white out conditions . With strong winds, though only -6 C, the wind chill is about -15. Had to put on fat man clothes (ie parka and thick mittens to take Elvira out for a romp). So uncork another bottle and drink on my behalf .

    Beautiful shot Don! I liked your expression-‘Cheers to life and to sunsets’. Not many people in the world are able to carry that attitude πŸ™‚ Have a safe journey to London and have a funtabulous time there with your kids.
