Day 214 – Last Night Blues…

So, after our family left this afternoon, we had a few hours to relax before a last meal and packing for our return trip tomorrow. Back to reality it is then, with lawns to mow, washing to get done and a trip to the supermarket. Next holiday is Santorini in October – can’t wait!

Day 210 – Made It At Last…

After two pretty horrendous days traveling, we finally made it to Ibiza. A cancelled flight yesterday and a long drive to an alternate airport, then a delayed flight today, with the threat of being bumped at the last minute as the plane was overloaded. Fortunately we made it, and our reward was meeting up with family, and a fabulous sunset dinner…

Day 197 – High & Dry…

This spot, Meols, on the Wirral Peninsula, is the closest sea to us. It’s about 75 miles away, or an hour and a quarter by car. I’d seen photos of the boats stranded there at low tide, but hadn’t realized that what looks like a sandy beach is actually rather nasty black sludge, definitely not for walking on! So the only photo I could take was from the concrete slipway, but at least the sunset was good…

Day 132 – Defying Gravity…

Tonight’s outing was to the Minack Theatre near Land’s End. An amazing venue, carved out of the side of a cliff and hosting everything from music concerts to Shakespeare, it was conceived and largely built by Rowena Cade and her gardener from 1930 onwards. The performance tonight was by ‘Gravity’ – a rock/indie band based locally. Even though the day had been warm, it was far from warm when the sun went down! A magical experience nevertheless…
