Hello...

Hello.
I knew at the beginning of the year that I wanted to let go of the blog. I am in a different place now and I need the space to work through a great many things. I intend to keep the archives up for a time, although I have removed the comment function.
If you have landed here - welcome and feel free to dip in to what was our life - once upon a time...

Summer weekending


















A beautiful weekend when we welcomed the first of our family parties to the croft. My step-daughter, son in law and their two boys. They had never visited the island before, as they live in Switzerland . Coming from a land-locked country, it soon became obvious that they were suffering from serious beach deficiency. Well, we certainly have the cure for that! This summer weekend has been full of special moments:


  • Beaches every day
  • Rainbows
  • Getting to know new friends
  • The benefits of having a keen fisherman in the house
  • A baby being adored 
  • Smoking fresh langoustines on the beach
  • Exploring
  • Playing
  • and little sandy feet.


A few more beach days ahead of us, as the holiday continues - hope your weekend was blessed with love, joy and sunshine. xxx

  2. Oh my dear friend, I love seeing those wee little sandy feet, they are just adorable.
    I am so glad you were able to help those poor family members of yours and fill them up with some beach loving, it's so important to ones health. ;)Truthfully I am not sure how one can go through life without the sound of the sea filling the air, that seems so sad.
    It looks like you are really enjoying the summer!

  4. Fantastic photographs!
    Summer looks much cooler than what we experience here... it looks a little more like our autumn.
    Happy summer to you.. I'm sitting here feeling the cold of winter.
