"Good morning!"

They test fly early in the morning. This one came directly over our house. I was awoken by the roar of its burners at 6:00am. I stood in my garden looking up and we called out 'good morning' to each other. A very strange moment. He couldn't stay aloft and landed in a nearby school field.

Beach huts

A tiny refuge by the sea. Somewhere to escape the crush of the world.
