Some years ago we visited a sound installation, called “Harmonic Fields” in Dorset. If/when the wind blew the various “instruments” suspended on wires were supposed to reverberate or make a sound. Unfortunately on the day we visited there was very little wind, but it was still beautiful to look at.
In Myanmar we saw one the largest bells ever cast, I can’t imagine what it might have sound like when struck. As you can see, most people feel the urge to bend down and creep inside the bell and then stand up and touch its interior. I love the girl standing behind my husband, just peeking out with a cheeky grin on her face.
These smaller bells, hung around the eaves of a temple in Thailand, were much easier to hear.
This is a print by a friend of mine entitled “bouche à l’oreille” which could be loosely translated as “gossip”

The foliage is made from saucepans and kitchen implements. Not only do they have an art gallery – with a truly awful exhibition the day we went there, but an excellent restaurant and a perennial meadow garden, designed by the renowned landscape artist Piet Oudolf

Our next stop along the coast was the pretty resort of Side, which also has a large complex of well preserved ruins next to it. The resort is pedestrianised so you have to leave your car outside and we caused chaos by getting into the lane reserved for taxis and trying to reverse out when we discovered our mistake.
In Alanya on Turkey’s southern coast we opted to stay in a hotel within the old castle walls. It was a very steep climb from the road up to our room in the hotel but the view over Alanya’s bay was well worth it.
It was also a popular place for newly weds to have their photos taken
Next morning we were greeted with this stormy sky
