Sunshine and Showers

We have just returned from a week on the South coast where we spent a lot of time sleeping and reading, and some time walking and beachcombing. 

It was my lovely Mum's birthday so we treated her to a cake, complete with candles...

The weather was very changeable. Some days we had thunderous rain all day and all night ...

When it rained there wasn't much we could do except relax in the caravan with our books and crosswords ...

And other days we had sunshine and fluffy clouds ...

We visited our favourite place, Mudeford, where we wandered along the Quay and had lunch at the Haven House Inn ...

"Fisherman's Lunch" - a pint of prawns !

Christchurch Priory in the distance

The dogs made friends at the beach ...

And we had some nice walks with Mum and Dad ...

The Isle of Wight, the "Needles" and a sail boat

Beach huts at Milford on Sea

Although we're home I have another week before I have to return to work and we have some more adventures lined up for this week. As it was our 5-year wedding anniversary on the 17th we have a special stay in the North York Moors coming up soon.

I hope you are all well and enjoying the last of the late summer weather.
