Started bright with blue sky ... that didn't last!
Eliot got a bit of a run in the sunshine.
The afternoon had a beautiful ordination service for four new deacons in Connor Diocese. One of them, Mellissa, was our Student Reader for the last few months so it was a privilege to be there for her. There were quite a number of Saint Nicholas' folk there too. The church, Saint Colman's in Dunmurry, was packed and the atmosphere was terrific.
That's been a really good day ... with a few turtle pictures to add to the collection!

The pottery tub is even smaller with a diameter of just over four centimetres. The person who made it stamped AC on the inside ... wouldn't you love to know who is the artist?
I really must stop this crazy obsession of a daily picture of one or more of the turtle collection ... it could go on for another half year ... but maybe just one or two more days and then back to a "normal" 365Project for a while. Not that I have any intention of stopping the photo shoots with Eliot ... but maybe that's different!
