When a summerhouse becomes a beach hut

We had a delightful evening at my friend Yvonne's last night . We enjoyed every last ray of sunshine over a glass of wine in her delightful little " beach hut "
Last summer she decided to turn all the junk out of her summerhouse and give it a new look. She can enjoy the garden with music at her fingertips and her laptop to hand, the perfect escape for her writing.
This year more has been added and it is on my list to look for sea side items to add to the decor.
It just shows what a bit of imagination can do.....have you a corner for a little hideaway? even a modest little shed can provide a little haven , we girls love our sheds

We are Sailing...

Yes those of you who know me will recognize this picture! yes ! I am off to France dawn tomorrow and can't wait to board the Normandie. The wheel has fallen off the Seacat so we are being sent to Caen and will have a new route to try to Barneville which we are looking forward to.
I have a strange shopping list which is growing daily, we go to our favourite food emporium in St Vaast.That corner of the Cherbourg Peninsular is so different and the beaches on the North coast are usually quiet. You can find lovely granite sand and I have found lots of shells. If you have not been and have some time before your ferry take a detour it is delightful.

Snapshots from Japan

My son Lawrence has been to Japan with his friend Nagisa, they stayed in Tokyo and in the countryside with her family.
He had a fantastic time so I thought I would share some snapshops with you as it is just so different


Two swallows first sighting

How exciting I have seen my first swallows today down by the sea.
