About Me

Loved your post, as always. What a lovely time you all had. Your comment about not liking hydrangeas really amused me. My husband hates them, he virtually shudders when he sees them! I think they're rather nice!


How awesome. What a lovely time you all had. Sea, sand (pebbles dont rhyme!) and surf....makes me even more excited about our Xmas trip home to South Africa...


I get the hydrangea thing....I want to like them for their delicate or unusual colours and sort of lacy, papery beauty....but I just can't!

What a magical day tho', sun, blue sky...it was like that here in Sussex...we travelled to Birmingham that day (very hot in the car!)and stayed in a Premier Inn...we sat the evening in the Beefeater garden until 8.30pm! Unheard of recently in the UK!!!

Can't wait for the next installment xx


All I have to say is.......HEAVENLY!!
Oh and that last picture is simply devine Lucy!

Beautiful photos!


The warm weather last week really was completely delicious! Sounds like a perfect start to your holiday - adore beach barbecues!


Oh this looks really lovely. I would so love to do all this and I'm so glad you all had a wonderful time. Beautiful pictures as always thank you so much for sharing them.

Sol is my favorite beer EVER!!! Yeah, that's what caught my eye out of ALL the pictures. LOL

I know what you mean about hydrangeas, I am not at all gardeny, but they remind me of my Nanna...who lived in Bexhill, East Sussex, and that was the only seasidey place we ever really went to as we lived up north then. I associate hydrangeas with seaside! I still feel aggrieved that I missed most of the good weather down here in Gloucestershire as on the Sunday I went north to Cumbria, to help my parents move house...and it rained and was cold! my family told me how hot it was..and what I was missing, seems they were right!


I've been reading and enjoying your blog now for a few months and have felt that we have so much in common - even more so when I saw the photos that you posted following your last trip to Dorset. I have spent many happy times on holiday in that part of the world - staying at both the camp sites at Seatown and Eype. I know Burton Bradstock, Bridport, West Bay and Lyme very well and your photos brought back some very happy memories of yesteryear. My husband has spent many hours fishing on the beach at Seatown before heading for a pint in the Anchor. I can't wait to see the rest of your photos though I feel like I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms when seeing them as its a good few years since we've been there.


I adore hydrangeas! Your photos of them are quite lovely! I'll love them for you!
I also really like your beach - the little pebbles are so neat!!!


How perfectly perfect!!! Your beaches are so very different than ours. Love the pebble shore. The photos of the palms looked like they could have been taken here where I live in So. California.
Loved reading this! Charming, as always!

Beautiful photos, fabulous garden, what a fantastic holiday, you were so blessed with such lovely weather.
I have one white hydrangea in a pot, it was only a few inches high when I bought it a few years ago, two bad winters really knocked it back, this summer it has flourished. I love it.

Oh, all your pictures are beautiful, but that last one took my breath away! Absolutely stunning. I am very sad you don't like hydrangeas :-D but thank you for taking lovely pics of them anyway for those of us who do!!

Beautiful and lovely - thank you for sharing - you have brightened up my day!


How gorgeous!

I'm thinking photo four may be inspiration for a blanket?

Kayleigh Gerrard

Lovely, I really should explore Dorset more often seeing as I'm only over the border in Somerset!

Little Miss S

What a magical and perfect family day! So lovely to read about your family adventures.


It looks absolutely GOOOOORGEOUS Lucy! I was so so lucky last week to be invited with the kids (while my lovely hubby worked!) to stay at a friends house in Cornwall - as a northerner its only the second time I've visited the very south, and Oh My isn't it beautiful, I wan't to replay the week over and over again! ... and weren't we lucky with the weather last week! xx


Beautiful pictures Lucy, thankyou for sharing with us all. Freezing and raining here so nice to come to some warm looking pics.


Kathy - FRANCE

OOOOHHH!! I've just got back from holiday - about 8 hours ago and I'm pining!!! I'm
lucky, I suppose - to be only about 2 hours from the Vendee coast (in France - where we live) where we were!
But I'm missing the pines and sands already!!! the great crashing waves of the atlantic keep my 14 year old occupied like nothing else, on his waveboard and as my hubby is having Chemo at the moment it was a great to have him occupied like that!! just forgetting everything for a couple of hours each day - great stuff - please everybody out there - enjoy every moment you have!!


How absolutely perfect ^_^ Just reading that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. I can only imagine how blissful you felt on your trip. I'm so glad you have those wonderful opportunities to make such beautiful memories with your family.


Lovely, Lucy. I just posted some pictures of my trip to the shores of northern California....I so love the sea as you do =]
Hugs from Gracie

Gorgeous holiday photos, how blue is that sky & ocean! But I can't get over the pepples on the beach...here in Australia, our beaches have sand. Which on the very hot days just about burns the soles of your feet off!
To Kathy - France, Best wishes that all goes well for your husband. It's times like this that make you appreciate every single day's blessings.
