A trip to the sea

Went to Brighton today, DH to visit a record fair and me to stroll along the front, nothing like the bracing air of the sea to clear the cobwebs away and refresh you for the week ahead. Huh as you can see from the photo the weather was appalling and I only took the one shot from under cover, bracing was not the word, the umbrella ended up inside out as we shot up the road with the wind behind us. Things were a bit calmer when we stopped for coffee by the duck pond at first the ducks were in shelter but then the sun came out and so did they.

Finished my machine embroidered picture, hopefully will get a frame this week, another project done.

Was going to download picture of a card I made but my camera has now decided it will not work, will try again next week. Oops got it working now I think the USB is a bit dodgy.

  17. I'm glad you were able to take a little break and get away for the day! My DH and I did that a couple of weeks ago and it recharged my batteries too! There is something about staring at the ocean and feeling the power and majesty of it that puts life into perspective for me! Thanks for sharing!
