So, yesterday, I spent quite a large amount of time getting ridiculously windswept and covered in sea spray! But it was for a good cause. My daughter asked for a beach ride for her birthday, so I had arranged for her, her friend and her friend’s mum to go to Nolton Stables in Pembrokeshire and…… Continue reading Beach Riding
This spring business is pretty good fun isn’t it?! I’m glad it finally decided to arrive. Yesterday we went for a walk on the beach and I was looking for some new spring growth and was delighted to find the Sea Pinks (or Thrift) are starting to flower.

I’d been playing with my blog theme and had put in a nice summery beach photo as the header, which set me off dreaming of summer. I thought I’d continue with that theme…… Continue reading Dreaming of Summer
A photo I dug out of my back catalogue recently as an illustration for a poem called Taking Flight over on my other blog. This is a view from a local beach back in more summery days.
