Glorious, Lucy, thanks so much for sharing these delightful pictures and ever so lovely commentary. What a fabulous trip you all have had. So glad the BBQ fire got restarted and the burgers were memorable.


I just love reading your blogs. I hope your wish comes true.
Thanks for the few moments away from my everyday life.


Gorgeous photos... :)

Debra Wortman

Oh, Lucy, how perfectly lovely!

Teresa Kasner

The day sounds like perfection. Even the saved BBQ with added woodsmoke, bravo to your spouse! I totally agree with you on the beach, sea and sky, nice shots! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Gillian McM

Completely heavenly! The next best thing to being there. Thank you, Lucy.


We were there at the weekend. We too love the walk up the hill to see the amazing view along Chesil Beach. My children shattered the peace too but by the fish ponds, especially when my daughter very nearly fell in as she was hopping over the stepping stones at a fast 6 year old speed. Lovely photographs.

Beautiful photo's you made. They give a good impression of a wonderful vacation.


You have reminded me of my visit to that beach. I loved it too. In fact I have a couple of pebbles from it in a bowl on my piano. Beautiful photos Lucy, so glad you had such a lovely time. Very impressed with your butterfly photo by the way. We also have the butterfly identification chart now. But mostly we're seeing white ones! Hope you all have a good weekend.


Your trip continues to look magical. I'm glad you had such a nice time. I would love to visit those gardens someday, that's just my kind of place. And if it's any consolation, my children annoyed people in a beautiful and peaceful Japanese-style garden recently. One of them even fell off a bench. :)


Living on the Isle of Wight surrounded by the beach is breath taking and a world away from the hustle and bustle of mainland life. The brightest star in the sky at night is my dear old Dad :-) .... lovely post as always Lucy .... happy days xx love Joy xx


I wish on stars every time there's a clear sky. Some of them even come true - but they're always secret, between me and the stars. Isn't it incredible that there's nothing between us and them on clear nights. Except some magic!

The House of Jones

Nosy Jones wants to know what you wished for!

Gorgeous photos and writing as always - I love the picture of the fish. We always spend ages by ponds, rivers, streams, lakes - any body of water really - looking for fish. The Bert is incredibly good at spotting them, but I think I would have done pretty well with your fish pond ;)

Oh and how manly does your husband sound, rescuing the fire with Ray Mears survival skills.. Grrrrr!

Looking forward to hearing more holiday tales soon,
Jones x


Beautiful pics as always. Love your storytelling. Smiling at your wish making upon a star and laughing at myself because I'm so curious to know what you wished for!

What wonderful places you visited! I recently read On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan!Wonderful!And those pebbles on that beach fantastic!AriadnefromGreece!


Luv the photos and commentary...a good time was had by all!!! I too love the sea and I am fortunate to live beside it...to have a pebbly beach at the end of our driveway, to watch passing sailboats, tugs, and cruise ships in the summer months. The sea is bliss....... MO

Puppet Lady

You've captured the essence of this gorgeous summer! Fantastic pictures of the evening bar-b-q.

Oh Lucy! What a wonderful trip, thanks for sharing, I l-o-v-e the sunset pics! AND the garden ferns, bridges, fish, the carvings and the willow deer...well all really. :D
I wish....


What a lovely post, the gardens remind me a bit of Compton Acres, the beach looks great, and yes I'm one for wishing on stars. x


It looks really beautiful. The carved fallen trees are amazing. Sarah

Teresa Zuehls

Such a beautiful ending to a beautiful day! I know how you feel about the sea! It's always the same but at the same time changing all the time with the light and clouds. We just got back from spending Labor Day weekend at the beach and I am missing it already too.


Fantastic photos and post as usual, such happy memories. Liz


You know, I still feel cheated that the weather was horrendous when I went to Eype ;-)
