Rev. Michael Hayes & Terry Hitchcox
A pictorial selection suggesting days out following the River Yeo as it journeys through Dorset and Somerset. The second in the series Staying Local from TWHITCH Publishing.
This is a story of the adventures of two pensioners with their cameras tracking a course set by accident when they realised a following of the River Yeo through West Dorset and South Somerset. With Terry living in Yeovil and Michael in Taunton, the river became a convenient focus for our photography days out every month or so.
A pictorial selection for days out around the mid south west, Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Wiltshire. This record of the regular ramifying ramblings undertaken by a pair of proactive, pension possessing photographers has as much to do with coming to terms with having the time for such activity, as it does with the actual art of seeking the pictorial image.
USA Our Way
To some people the holiday story presented here will be seen as an extravagant waste of money, or some might think spending an unexpected windfall this way would be unwise; it could even be considered that to have two trips of a lifetime is positively greedy.
Whichever way, you the reader can decide for yourself; we’re just glad we had the combined chances to do it.
Witnessing white star service on six separate sailings my wife Jane and I are appreciative of being shown every respect by Cunard's staff. In addition those we came in touch with either daily or only once, displayed a friendliness that cruising this way promotes a classless plural microcosm so missing in a modern society where right wing governments are only seeking to endorse a life of selfish greed.
This may seem hypocritical when describing a holiday in extreme luxury, but most passengers know this a transitory illusional world where we are Jack and Rose, but the bow of the ship is out of bounds. Nothing wrong with wanting to be king of the world, is there?
