A Trip


I really appreciate all of your comments and for your visits to this space. Life is incredibly busy now and the days are flying by. I cannot believe it’s almost Christmas, it seems that I have just packed up all the decorations and now it’s time to take them all down from the cupboards again! I was grateful to hear from a few readers who were missing my posts. I will be posting more often and really enjoy sharing here and of course love hearing from you. I am also posting frequently on Instagram as Mamma4earth


We’ve just returned from a lovely holiday at the beach. We haven’t been for a while, it’s an eight-hour drive in the car but was worth the trip.


I spotted a bluebottle on the beach, they are beautiful.



Kye and I found some scoured out rock pools that had tiny ecosystems living in them.


Everyone enjoyed the beach, I really wish we lived closer.


I’ve been enjoying knitting on the Blue Light Hat. It was originally designed by Kerstin Olsson in 1959 and was updated by Solveig Gustafsson in 2008. The shades of yarn are breathtaking when combined in their respective rounds. ?✨ Kye has seen it and has already claimed ownership.?


Discovering windmills is my absolute favourite activity when we’re on a roadtrip.


Found some stunning seaglass on the beach…


I took this photo of the sunrise at 4:45 am the morning we drove back, it was beautiful and the sun disappeared into the clouds almost instantly.

      Hi Patti,
      Thank you 🙂
      Yes it is, they float around and occasionally wash up on the beach.
      Have a lovely Christmas!

    I am delighted to get another message from you. I am one of many who have missed your pictures and knitting. Right now it is spitting down frozen precipitation that is making hail-like sounds against the windowbox so I envy your trip to the beach. Alas, there is no way I would ever be up at 4:45 to see the sun rise so I will just enjoy your pictures.

    Wishing you Happy Holidays.

      Happy Holidays to you too 🙂

    Lovely photos. Always fun to have a peek at the other side of the globe. I’m tickled by the windmill comment. When my brothers and I were kids and we’d be on long drives, my mother would cheerfully remind us of our game of spotting various features roadside to earn points. “Working windmill, 50 points!” Kept us from pummeling each other for a while. I can never remember any other point-earning sights; only the windmills stuck with me. Each of your photos is worth a thousand points in my book.

      Hi Cath,
      Thanks so much, car games make the long journey much more interesting!

    Nice to ‘hear’ from you again! Your trip looks lovely – I too love the beach and wished we lived closer.

    I am also intrigued by the blue bottle. Is it an animal’s egg sack?
