Some catching up and time out….

I realise I've been very neglectful with blogging of late so here is a small catch up/snapshot of what's been going on.


The final stage of my photography course - on location on the
River Chelmer


A very warm day indeed but I learnt such a lot



Enjoying learning about new techniques


Very soon after John took me away for a few days to a delightful guest  house in Arlington snuggled in the heart of the Sussex Downs


where we had our own little terrace from the French doors


to enjoy a cup of tea and cake



but more often a glass of chilled white wine


where the views were just wonderful





 and where I could put my new photographic skills to practice.





This iconic view of the Seven Sisters was something I was on a mission to capture - whew - it was a bit of a walk but well worth it in the end.



This weekend we went to a local VW rally at Battlesbridge, where we met up with the lovely Sandie from Itchifingers who also owns a V-dub. A fabulous afternoon where we spotted some great camper vans and too many to show here. Plus a selection of  some vintage and retro goodies to buy.



Well that's a bit of what's been going on - more another time. As I'm not going to have access to any broadband and internet for the next week, added to which there's a summer-load of busy-ness coming up - holidays, trips, family do's etc I've decided to take a short bloggy break. I'm going to miss catching up with you all but I'll be back mid August-ish when I hope to see you all then.

Bye for now xx

  3. You went to Battlesbridge! I have been antique fossicking there lots of times, and have quite a few pieces of china brought carefully back to Australia - happy memories, Patricia. The photography course is very appealing, and your photos better than ever. Guest House looks very nice and cosy, but the white cliffs is my pick pic: stunning!! Will miss you, but have a really lovely summer break, and look forward to seeing more wonderful photos. xx

  19. Your pictures are very petty – lovely color and form. Summer is a good time to take a rest from blogging and enjoy family, friends and trips. Enjoy yourself!
