In August we had some time away.
It was a really nice getaway.
Lots of lovely sights.
It was Cornwall.
This was at the Eden Project.
The humid and arid biomes.
A lovely place to visit. I do love to see all the tropical plants and the beautiful grounds, but if you don't go really early in the summer, then it's not worth going at all.
There were 19 family members together on this holiday. It was a huge amount of fun. The Bears LOVED IT.
The house that we stayed in was right opposite a pretty village church......with bells! There were two weddings one day, so many of us sat outside with drinks in hand, prime view, watching people arrive and seeing the excitement of the day unfold for them. The bells rang for what seemed like most of the day. OH MY WORD, I just LOVED IT. I did not want to go anywhere, just sit and listen to the bells ringing.
I think I have said before just how much I love the sound of Church Bells.
I think the whole village had turned out to watch each brides arrival. I absolutely loved the Vicar, about half an hour before the first guests started to arrive.......standing outside with his take away coffee and shorts with his dog collar on....just chillin'. It tickled me.
Pretty flowers, heavenly church bells, pretty cars, and gorgeous dresses. It was lovely to sit and soak up the happy vibe.
The second bride.....I ADORED her dress. She looked utterly gorgeous.
Isn't it just so pretty? Just simple and oh so elegant. The Vicar still had his shorts and sandals underneath, he gave the gathering audience a quick flash!
We managed to fit in beach time
It's always pyramids that are built, never old school sandcastles for some reason.
The sea was awesome....but choppy
I love this pic of my S-I-L
And I love this one of stripey boys admiring their handiwork!
Clear blue skies in amongst brief squalls.
Sights to make you smile.
And buildings to make your heart sing.
I loved this little building so much. It had the prettiest lace in the windows....and I loved the grey blue of the paint. Picture perfect for me.
And in the evenings this was the sight from our window, which I just ADORED. A perfect golden glow.
To me, just the most wonderful sight.
So a fab time was had.
