A walk to the grocery store

Usually this river next to the car park of our local grocery store - Sainsburys - doesn't even get a second glance - look how it has been transformed by the snow!

Greece - Out and About

Posted by Picasa

Greece - Isand Life

The view from our sun loungers - during the day and at sunset (I've included my toes as proof of this pic's authenticity)

We stayed in Panormas on Skopelos island (Sporadic Isands)... George having breakfast on the "stoep of our apartment, the view from the apartment "stoep" and the pebble beach.... I counted about fifty steps from the stoep to the beach...

George found these beautiful sea urchins while of my favourite mornings was taking the kayak and exploring a stretch of the coastline to the next village...there's that beautiful sunset again...

Much Ado About Nothing

Smallhythe Place in Tenterden (Kent) provided a lovely backdrop for Shakespeare's comedy. Ellen Terry, the grande dame of Victorian theatre, owned the estate. After her death, her daughter set out to make it a permanent memorial to her mother. The barn has been converted into a theatre and during the summer, plays are held outdoors - we didn't miss the opportunity of booking tickets and enjoying the evening.

Lavender Treat

Lavender fields - a beautiful sight... We were treated to a full back, neck and shoulder massage with lavender oil in the lavender fields (see umbrellas and massage tables in the background) - the boys had a beer in a nearby pub (!)
