I love the fields behind, with the bales of hay waiting for pick up.
They wont be here for long as the time has come to move them off the promenade for the winter, the beach hut removal team has already started, a true sign that the seasons are changing.
Rock-samphire growing out of the promenade wall, will soon be gone or washed away.
The last few days of beautiful holiday weather saw the beach teams cleaning the sand early in the morning as the cafe behind was getting ready for a busy last weekend ahead.
Meanwhile, whilst I was decorating......
the pets found quiet places to sleep
a cruise ship came and went
amazing spiders made wonderful webs
the beach looked beautiful
and the swans came to Broadsands
At last the painting (well most of it) has been completed and the new flooring is down throughout the house. It's been a very busy couple of weeks and quite disruptive too. I still have to paint all the internal doors and put up the new blinds, but it does feel like we are getting there.
The loft is still full of our pictures and possessions and I'm really looking forward to opening the boxes, unwrapping items and finding the things I like once again, after over a year in storage boxes.
I came across a lovely website a while ago called War Mule. The person who has written the site works for the Donkey Sanctuary and is looking for war stories concerning animals, especially horses, mules and donkeys. If you know anyone who has something to share or something to contribute in the way of poems or images, please do get in touch with them.
I would very much like to visit the Animals in War Memorial in Hyde Park. Have any of you visited this? The sculpture, carvings and bronze animals look so beautiful on the website.
I hope you have all been enjoying the lovely weather we've had recently and I look forward to keeping a little bit more up to date with your posts from now on.
Until next time
