17th August 2009

We've just had a wonderful week in Devon visiting family and some fantastic places.  Neil & Mel looked after us really well and we were so lucky that the weather was glorious.  On the way to Devon, we took the scenic route through Ross on Wye, Symonds Yat, & Tintern Abbey and during our stay we visited Painton Zoo, Exeter, Dartmouth, Totnes & Salcombe - oh and Mel's allotment which is very impressive - she wins prizes for her veg you know!!  We also enjoyed some amazing scenery during walks with Toby (Neil & Mels' gorgeous dog).  As usual with me, my camera was slung over my shoulder for most of the holiday so here are just a few of the images, there were so many beautiful things to photograph!  if you would like to see the rest, let me know and I'll give you the password!!

Beautiful. (And next year tell me when you're going on holiday so I can book the same week and hopefully share your luck with the weather!)Jx

We visited Cambridge to catch up with family and spend a bit of time in the city itself.  As the weather was so gorgeous, we went punting on the River Cam on Saturday whilst enjoying a tour of the colleges and their history.  On Sunday we went for a picnic with Gem, Jake and Benjamin (Matt's daughter, son-in-law & grandson) who we just don't see enough of.  Benji has grown so much since we last saw him and is getting cheekier and more gorgeous as he grows.  We won't leave it so long next time!

Peckforton Castle

29th May 2009

Matt woke up on his birthday to beautiful sunshine so we decided to make the most of it and have a day out.  We visited Peckforton Castle which is a pretty impressive building and I could see why it's a popular venue for weddings.  It has Birds of Prey and some beautiful Peacocks that I just had to photograph.  It was a shame that their feathers were not on display perhaps due to the fact their weren't any female Peahens around for them to show off to.  Humans just aren't worth the effort obviously!

Dublin, St Patrick's Day 2009

23rd March 2009

My partner, Matt surprised me with a trip to Dublin for St Patrick's Day for a birthday treat. We had a great time doing all the tourist attractions – open top bus ride, Jameson's Old Distillery, Guiness Storehouse and a boat trip along the River Liffey and not forgetting the St Patrick's Day parade – We stood for hours waiting for the procession to arrive along with thousands of others all clad in green but it was worth the crowds and the waiting.  The Theme was “ The Sky's the Limit”  and the size of the structures in the procession, the energy of the performers and the bright vivid colours were great to photograph.
