The end of Summer.....

Hello readers!

Sorry I've not been around for a while. Life kind of caught up with me - since I last posted we've had a long weekend in Cornwall (all fabulous, gorgeous weather and icky sunburn), spent 12 long days in Shropshire with Wolfshead Bowmen in the (mostly) pouring rain, and been to the Great Dorset Steam Rally.

I figured it was high time I shared some of this with you.

Here is a picture of a beach in Cornwall. Wa-hey. Thrilling, eh? We're the little shelter at the far end. Yes, a Cornish beach with no-one on it. Amazing for late July. Which I why I though to share it with you. It was like this for about 45 minutes after we got there, at about 12.30pm, but didn't exactly get packed. I think that was cos only locals knew about it. The reason we went there was that it was the only beach in about a 30 mile radius that was both clean, safe for swimming, AND allowed dogs.




By complete contrast, here are a couple of photos from our stay in Shropshire. Note the pouring rain. Note the rain, pouring off all the canvas. Note the mud. It was like that for about 8 out of the 12 days we were there. And all the while my back was playing up too. Ho hum. It did dry up towards the end of our time there, so it was fun in the end.....

Oh Diane, shame about the weather! No doubt the damp air didn't help your back none neither (((hugs)))
Get a heat pack on it if you can, warm your bones through.

Diane - your Shropshire weather was like our Cornwall weather - tents blown down all over the place - not the ideal weather for first time campers!!!!!
