Only four more sleeps.

Only four more sleeps until we are off again on our way to Florida, via England. The six months has just flown by, and we’ve had so much fun. We’ve been for many walks just lately, to get our fill of the beach and sea, because after Tuesday, we won’t see it again, until April next year.

Yesterday, we were out really early, and it was quite cool and cloudy, but still warm enough for shorts and T-shirt,

This cargo ship looked really close, because it was bigger than the rest, but hubby assured me that it was just an optical illusion, and it was much too far away  to swim out to. 🙂

I have to confess that this time, we didn’t make it past the old life guard’s restaurant, because the breakfast smells were so irresistible, and we hadn’t eaten yet, so in we went and ordered eggs, bacon, and two glasses of orange juice. I’m the mushroom fiend. 🙂

It’s not at all smart, but we love to sit out on the wooden benches, watching the waves and the comings and goings on the beach.

Some holiday makers were preparing to go out for a spin through the waves on one of the ‘rubber duckies’.

It took them forever to get their life-jackets on, but eventually they were all set to go, and the SUV pushed them into the sea.

Then it was off through the rocks,

and out into the ocean.

I wasn’t envious, because it looked like a really bumpy ride, and I prefer my sea-going craft to be much bigger than that.

I was amused by this bell and the sign on the wall of the restaurant.

We have seen dolphins on occasion, but I’d need a much better camera to get any decent photos. We’ve ordered a new one for delivery when we get to the States, as their half the price there, and I’m hoping that there will be a great improvement in the quality of my photos. At the moment I just have a 6-year-old Sanyo, and my iPhone. So watch out Phil, you may have competition with those egret and heron pics very soon. 🙂

We walked our breakfast off, and went up into the village to do some shopping. On the way back, I saw a tiny sapling on someone’s grass verge, and it reminded me of that 1970’s Tony Orlando song, “Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. ” Isn’t it cute?

Tomorrow we’ll be off up the hill to take my mom and sister out for lunch, and say our goodbyes, and then it will be down to the nitty-gritty of packing, which as you can imagine, is no mean task. I wish you all a very happy weekend, doing lots of relaxing or exciting stuff, or both. 🙂
