Hello visitor, we are enjoying some beautiful sunshine here in the UK in leafy Surrey and there have been days out, walks in the woods and a trip to the seaside.
West Wittering is only an hour or two from us by car and near beautiful Chichester town (where we stopped to buy picnic supplies and will be going back to spend more time and explore as it's worth a visit of its own).
The beach at one end is crowded and full of stripey windbreakers, but further down it is empty and quiet, the tide was out so there was a huge expanse of smooth sand. I would love to live here (in a beach hut perhaps) and walk along the shoreline every day looking for shells.....
We took a picnic and wandered along, found a good spot to sunbathe on the lovely soft sand and spent the whole day enjoying the sea air. Fish come up on the tide and are easy to catch (and return!).
Later in the week we had such beautiful weather that I was able to do silk painting outside.
and used the flowers in my garden tubs as the subject ...
Blackberry and elderberry are early this year so I went picking with my neighbour. I will be busy picking again for the next week or two and freezing to make cordials.
My days off work are being packed to the full,
(the advantage of being a shift worker!)
we have a lovely gym near us so I am off for a swim ......
How's your week been going?
Thank you for stopping here, leave a comment so I can visit you too.
