The Week-End

Well, it's been a week without a posting! I was beginning to get some withdrawal symptoms! There has been a lot to do at work and so the blog had to take a bit of a back seat last week.
The above is a flower in our garden - I just love the fuschia colour, it's so vivid!
Just found I've got a new follower. I'm always amazed as to how people find my blog and Denise has told me that she discovered the blog when looking up Cockington Village near Torquay where she used to live. She now lives in America! Now many people who blog can set up a link with their previous posting so that others could see my post about Cockington - I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to links so it's not going to happen here! Sorry!

At the weekend we headed down to the South West. On Saturday we took a trip to Lyme Regis in Dorset.
It was a very bright, sunny day.

We are lucky enough to have been to Lyme many times and there is so much to see and take a photo of - you can almost guarantee not to take the same photo twice!
Lyme is one of my favourite destinations - it has so much going for it!

I liked the muted colours of these ropes.

The greedy seagulls!

I would love to live in that house on the hill - imagine the breathtaking views!

And if I couldn't have the first house what about the views from this one!

We sat on the harbour wall watching the world go by ... I love days like this. The sun's on your face and all's well with life.

Lobster pots!

Colourful buoys!

A colourful anchor!

And another ...

We had some ice-cream - it was heavenly! We walked back into town through the gardens and discovered this Gaudi style mosaic bench! We rested awhile!

Our Daughter fell in love with this sun hat and we bought it as it will be practical if we have a heat-wave this Summer! Buying the hat has probably put a dampner on the forecast!
We visited the second hand bookshop and I bought four paperbacks including two Agatha Christie's.
The Other Half found three Leslie Charteris (The Saint) paperbacks and Our Daughter found an old Beano.
What's more we then went to Susie Cole (a fabulous shop that sells some vintage goodies). I saw a lovely vintage vanity case which the Other Half bought for me as an advance Birthday present!
On the way home we stopped in a Farm Shop and purchased some strawberries which had only just been delivered having been picked that afternoon! 
If only all days were like this!

Until next time.

  1. Hi June!
    Lovely post! I love all the coastal photos, makes me wish I were there. We went to Lyme Regis last year so know it a little, enough to know how pretty it is, and what a wonderful place just to sit and watch the world go by.
    Your daughter looks great in the straw hat!
    Beautiful flower from your garden, such an amazing colour.
    Thankyou for your comment and good wishes for Bella - she, like you, and like both my hubby and I, is also a last minute crammer, alhhough not in any panicky way, and so it has been a little stressy here (the stress coming from me not her!) as I worry it might be too late!She has worked hard over the last month or so,but declares she deosnt remember any of it until close to the time! So we have a high risk strategy here, nail biting for me as I too would in hindsight have spread my revision more!
    Ah well, whatever will be will be!
    Have a great week!
    Oh, and congratulations on gaining a new follower! It's so exciting when you see another new face, and I feel quite humbled and responsible!!
