    West Wight Alpacas

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 59 °F

    Alpacas are one of my favourite creatures - they are just so cute & funny to watch ! So of course I had to have some on the itinerary when we were on on our trip ! We could wander along the sides of the paddocks & see the various groups of them easily.

    The Needles

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 61 °F

    We drove along the South Coast of the Island and stopped off at the Needles - mainly fun fair & touristy shops but Mum & I enjoyed going on the chair lift to see the Needles themselves & the sand strata on the cliffs above the beach. Obviously we had to create an ornament with the different colours of sand in layers too !Read more

    Spinnaker Tower

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    We met Mum & Dad off their trains from Hastings at Portsmouth Harbour Station and went to have lunch at the base of the Spinnaker Tower. Rich had booked us a trip up the Spinnaker Tower and we had lovely sunny weather so we could see right out over the Solent to the Isle of Wight and right & left along the Hampshire coastline.One of the dares was to look down through the glass floor panel - we decided to lie down for a photo !Read more

    Rhossili & the Worm's Head

    August 1, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 59 °F

    It was Michaela's birthday today & we spent the afternoon walking down the Worm's Head with it's stunning views of Rhossii Beach. After a lovely healthy Budda Bowl lunch shared with my sister we set off down the peninsula. It's the first time in about 4 trips that the weather has ever been warm & not so windy that we've had to turn back - we actually got to walk down to the very end ! The boys even climbed down to the beach at the foot of the cliff - the tide was in so the causeway was covered in by the sea & the rip tides were visible from the cliff top.Read more

    Dinefwr

    July 16, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    When Joyce came to visit we made the most of a dull-ish day & headed up to our nearest National Trust property at Dinefwr where we were able to visit Newton House - Joyce had many memories of visiting this with Les as he had undertaken the Emergency Site plan for this property when he volunteered for the National Trust. We walked down the Boardwalk in the woods through the bog lands & down to the pond. Then we went over & looked around the house & had a coffee in the cafe. The NT have now made arrangements for disabled drivers to drive across a very large & steep field & up to the Castle so we were able to see around the quite impressive ruins for the first time too.Read more

    Sissinghurst

    June 24, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    We visited the beautiful gardens at Sissinghurst Castle on Dad's 80th Birthday and really enjoyed the gorgeous planting schemes as well as the sunshine! The planting was amazingly dense with harmonious & matching colours cascading down from the brick walls to the tiniest of front of border plants. the daisy meadow in front of the Oast House was stunning and the rose garden init's mid summer prime. And of course the white garden was exceedingly - well white !Read more
