Rattling through the month

Well, here we are, at the end of the first week of August. Having just reviewed blogging progress since the end of our holiday in June, I will need to whistle through July smartish if I want to keep things topical nature-wise!

There are three trips which lend themselves to having their own post, which will follow in due course, but here is a quick rattle through some of the more random July images:
