Not all work

We have had some time off and some fun on the beach.  These were taken at Ardroil beach on Monday.  Oh those Bank Holiday crowds!

A fabulous day - sunny, warm and never ending.  Such a busy time - just being.

So many  interesting and beautiful things to find on the beach.  



So many dunes to clamber up - and slide down again!


And the ever replenishing tide.

  7. Hello Honey, your photos are amazing, and funnily enough the beach wasn't too crowded that day lol. There is an endearing vintage feel to it all, was mama in a polka-dot bathing suit per chance ;)

  8. I'm so happy you're enjoying such fabulous weather, and time to be on the beach. And - no midges yet! Certainly well-deserved.

  11. Gorgeous! Love the lighting you chose for each photo. Do you use Adobe or picnik?
    Our weekend was spent enjoying family and catching honeybees!

  12. We've just been planning a trip to the west this summer - thought about making the crossing to Lewis and Harris, but time was against us. Still, seeing your beaches, I'm sorely tempted.

    HF - I don't use any editing. This was just a bit of playing around with the hipstamatic app on my iphone. I love it.
    Linda - do come over. It's only an hour and a half from Skye. xx

  14. From the Barefoot Gardener, Just received your comment. Thanks for connecting. I envy you your seaside frolics and especially your Beltaine sunrise view through standing stones. Wonderful. Blessings on all your gardening efforts. Would like to know what it was you made from what looked like nettles in a basket.
