So many interesting rock pools to investigate and rock formations to wonder over

 

Hope you all remembered to put forward the clocks today – (Spring forward, Fall Back)- we did as Jim wanted to get up early to watch the Grand Prix on TV. March has been another busy month with so much to do and enjoy and most of it in glorious sunny Spring sunshine. Of course with the warmth comes the start of the dreaded weeds! Gardening has taken up lots of hours…still picking up all the leaves from the autumn, sorting out the potting shed, and amazingly mowing the lawn for the first time in 2011- it sure won’t be the last time but it is the best time ! It’s wonderful to see the garden spring into life again and mowing the unkempt lawn and straightening the lawn edges just gives the whole garden a spring make over- very quickly!

We’ve also been out and about andlast week  enjoyed a day out at  the seaside. We went to Wiseman’s Bridge/Amroth in Pembrokeshire-90minutes drive from here. We parked the car in Wiseman’s Bridge and walked  the Coastal Path over to Amroth and had coffee and cake in the cafe and then walked back to the car along the beach…thank goodness the tide was out!

Very Henry Moore like rock formations

I want a cottage at the seaside!

When we left the seaside we drove to Narbeth- such a bustling, interesting town. We walked down the main street with all its various shope- all exciting and  individual- and popped into an Antiques market- just to browse- well- I had to buy something! Next we went next door to Coastal Galleries- where they had prints of the paintings Rolf Harris has completed on the TV programme Rolf in Wales. www.coastalgalleries.co.uk

We returned home via St Clears hoping to visit the Art and Craft gallerty there but unfortunately we had left it too late and it was closed.

The sun kept shining all week and we enjoyed some lovely local walks.

We’ve also been visiting our grandson who has just had an operation on his ear and is now recovering and enjoying life to the full again.

Our grandson- on the mend!

      Thanks for looking Wendy. I was hoping to use a photo from our day out at Amroth to paint in class, however, none of the photos quite fit the bill….means that I’ll have to return and take some more! Well it’s an excellent excuse to have some more time at the seaside! See you Thursday.
