Didn't she have a lovely time...

...The weekend she went to Swanage.
It started to rain; we had lunch on the train
And our B&B was very nice, you know.
We walked for miles over hills and oh what a chill;
To paddle and splash in the sea.
Eating fish and chips with an aching hip,
As the fireworks went bang!

The stone spiral has been celebrating nature on the hills for years. This time around it was looking a bit unloved so me and my friend spent a good hour tidying all the stones back into their spiral pattern. Now we know who the people are who do things like that - us! Although we just tidied it - someone else years ago thought to make it. :)

Hi Jayne..lovely pics. I find water: oceans, rivers and lakes extremely inspirational.

I wish I could take a picture of fireworks like that! I try and try, but I've never got anything that good. Sounds like you had a great time!

Yay!!!!!!

I love your poetic holiday
In Swanage for the weekend - hoooray!
Just look at that place
Bet you had a smile on your face
And mementoes that filled up your case!

:-)

Take care

What gorgeous pictures. I love the contrast--the good and the bad of the vacation (and like the aching hip, as that is one of my complaints that conflicts with the mostly good.
