Early this morning we were on our way to the shops. Why, you might ask, well, let me back up a bit. Yesterday morning I was doing several loads of laundry and had a few t-shirts and pullovers belonging to himself to wash so I in my ultimate wisdom decided to throw in a bit of bleach to brighten said things up. When the wash had finished and I took his clothes out I saw that one, a new one, that was suppose to be a slate blue colour was now a mixture of shades. So I say to myself, I'd better go and tell him about this before he sees it and the fight starts, lol. So, with hat in hand....erm, sweater in hand, I go to the bedroom where he is fussing with something or other.

"Ah, " says I, "I've done a terrible thing."
"What are you talking about", says he.
Holding the sweater aloft I explain that my use of bleach in the wash has ruined his sweater.
"Noooooooo," he yells with hands over face, "That's my very favorite sweater and I was going to wear it to the party on Saturday night."
"Sorry," I say, "Maybe we can find you another much like this one."

So off we went this morning and he did find one. Not exactly the same but one he's happy with.

I took the camera as I thought I might see the Eagle again or the ducks but saw neither. I did get some shots of a few things we saw, mostly ice.

Ice on Ocean.

Gulls on Ice.

That's amazing - to see the ice on the sea like that. It's very beautiful but looks exceedingly chilly - to say the least.

I do hope you've been forgiven for your minor faux pas OC! (Are you sure it wasn't just a cunning plan to encourage Himself to have a turn at the washing?)

Loved the pics of the ice, but also was expecting to see a pic of the sweater:)

lol, flydragon, I don't think you'll see a picture of the mess I made of the sweater.

I was kind of waiting to see a picture of that sweater too! The worst I did was to shrink one of D's wool sweaters.

Lovey pics even if you did see the eagle.

What beautiful pictures, your landscapes are stunning. I don't think I'd like to experience your weather though.
