An Amazing Weekend

It's amazing how much you can cram into one weekend - we were up early each morning and back late each night. I'm only just getting over it!
Before the weekend, Jay and I had another day out, last Wednesday. We went with a friend and son to Lepe Country Park. We sunned ourselves on the beach and walked along the gravel bank that appeared at low tide, whilst the boys body-boarded and hunted for small crabs left behind as the tide receded. The views across The Solent to The Isle of Wight were stunning.

On Saturday OH, Jay and myself went to our favourite place on the south coast. Fay unfortunately had to work (and on Sunday didn't want to get out of bed!)

First we stopped off for a wander around Bosham.

The Harbour

Sailing Club

Bosham church is depicted on The Bayeux Tapestry.

A bit unfortunate!

King Canute's daughter is buried here.

Pretty garden and cat.
Beadazzle - the most incredible bead shop. This photo only shows one half of it. I can't resist purchasing a few beads each visit. OH and Jay leave me at this point - they can't see how I can spent so long in here! I bought some pink and blue beads to make into bracelets.

Our picnic spot at the head of the harbour.

We then moved on to East Wittering for the beach.

After a fish and chip supper (just chips for me) we drove to Bracklesham for a walk along the beach in the moonlight.

Sunday we went to The Forest of Dean to visit my friend L and her family, who are camping there this week. We stopped off the watch the Severn Bore.

And visited Lydney Harbour before arriving at the camp.

On camp we had a BBQ and later went swimming and lazed in the jacuzzi and steam room. I'm glad that I didn't have to go to work on Monday, unlike my OH.

That's a fabulous photo of Bracklesham beach in the moonlight. It was lovely to see the photos of Bosham too, I've stayed there several times at The Millstream and love the area around there. Enjoyed your Norfolk pictures too, I have family in Norwich so have been familiar with the county all my life.It sounds as though you've had a wonderful time this summer.

Hi Rowan, yes we have had a great summer. Unfortunately 3 of us are now back to work/school with the 4th returning soon. We will try to prolong the summer with days out at weekends. Best wishes, Pj x
