One Day One World Project: 17:00 to 18:00 hours


When I see something like this opposite where I am staying, it just cries out for me to investigate. Just who were these people?


At 5:30 in the evening, the rain had cleared and the sun encouraged us to go out and explore the little town that will be our home for the next week.  And an open doorway to a cobbled wynd (a narrow street or alley in Scotland, especially between houses) …well could you resist?


Stained-glass artist and watercolourist E A Taylor and his wife, illustrator Jessie M King used to live here after their return from Paris at the outbreak of the First World War. (Both attended the Glasgow School of Art )

Kirkcudbright is known at ‘The Artists Town‘ having hosted generations of painters, craftmakers and artisans, a culture still thriving today.


And along with a cute and friendly tabby cat, I unexpectedly found this.


Lisa of the blog NorthWest Frame of Mind has decided to run a different project over the next 24 weeks. To try to show what is happening in different parts of the world (if you all join in) at a particular time of day.

If you would like to participate you have until next Saturday midnight to post a photo or write about what is happening in your part of the world between 17:00 – 18:00 this week.  I hope you’ll join in! See links for more details.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

        1. OK – just checking there isn’t anything I should see whilst up here. It is raining today so we’re off to look at the galleries and museum 🙂

          It is a lovely town to stay in, and the house we are renting is central and lovely and cheap – 57 High Street – if you are tempted.

        2. Thank you! Deluge here yesterday and most of last week but I did get to the Oranjezicht City Farm on Saturday so I’ll post about that this week. Have been too busy hibernating and reading as my addiction – well the one I will admit to that is – has landed me with 63 books screaming to be read. What is a girl to do???? Enjoy Scotland. Oh re Galway & Dumfries, it’s spitting distance from my friend Hayley in Ulverston so I think that’s where the idea came from xxx

    1. Quaint indeed. I am being very nosey popping down these wynds to see what I can discover…

      Check out the links to the artists – quite something!

    1. It does doesn’t it? And I am looking at it right now as it is directly opposite where we are staying.

  1. What a beautiful place! I’d love to spend an hour (or two) wandering through this little alleyway. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your post with the 1D1W project!

  2. How charming and quaint, Jude! This is the best kind of travel exploring – spontaneous and without preconception of what we are seeking.

    1. It’s a pretty town. Cross fingers for some sunny days please! The evenings have been fab and light until after 10pm.
