So I like to play in the sand…

I have just got back from a lovely week in Portugal where I loved:
Playing in the sand,

Swimming in the most beautiful sea,

exploring caves by boat (look at that turquoise!)

and being treated to hidden coves (can you see the man?),

Eating delicious food and loving white washed walls and bunting,

some of which was clearly home made.

Lots going on, lots to post about.
Hope you are all enjoying the sun x

Soothed by the Sea

Hello. Hope you are all well.
I am back off my holidays to the beautiful island of Menorca.
Feeling soothed and ready to roll.
Over the past few days I have enjoyed:
  • the blue (sky, sea, pool).
  • swimming in the sea, and sitting on the sand as the waves crashed around my ankles.
  • watching my little boy learn to snorkel with his daddy.
  • going on a boat trip to a secluded cove and kayaking in the sea there with my daughter.
  • eating coconut ice cream.
  • re-tracing childhood steps and walking along the coast to Cala Alcaufar.
  • dancing (oh yeah)
  • being highly competitive in a male v female pop quiz. My daughter was team captain and we rocked!!!
  • actually enjoying the flight home. I am not the best passenger, but there was a ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ quiz on board – inspired! I got to £250.000, then quit. If it had only been the real deal.
  • family time.
Back home to reality, a broken boiler (no heating or hot water), but it’s being fixed, so all is good.
