I've been a very busy little bee in the last couple of weeks. Lots of work things, which has been great, loads of dancing, which of course is fab, and two weekends away.
Last weekend was in Devon. I did all sorts of things,Glastonbury for Bohemian shopping which was very succesful. Lunch in the Barbican in Plymouth, just by the Mayflower steps. Vintage clothes shopping, I've bought the most amazing repro 1950s dress, fitted top with huge skirt and a wonderful net petticoat to wear with it. So that when I go to my dance classes' Christmas do, I'll really look the part doing rock'n'roll. Picking apples and having them turned into the most delicious apple juice I've ever had. Been walking, eating and talking,so usual wonderful mixture of stuff when I go visiting my friends.

Then this weekend was Anglesea by myself again, in my sister's log cabin.I got there just as the rain started, so had food and a snooze, but thought I must try and get to the beach. It was horrendous, cold, wet and windy I got drenched in the ten minutes or so I was out, so I retreated back to the snug cabin for my book, champagne and curry, which seemend the right mixture to me!
Saturday morning I made my way to South Stack an RSPB sanctuary with an incredibly step set of steps down to a little bridge going across to the lighthouse.
It was a very steep climb both down and then back up!!!
I just got back to the car as the rain started again, so had my picnic lunch listening to the rain drumming on the roof.
Sun came back out as I discovered this wonderful beach, walked the length of it and then just sat in a sheltered spot and listened to the waves and the gulls. My idea of total bliss those combined noises.

Another wonderous weekend being on my own. May have to wait till next spring till I go again, but I've got enough memories to keep me going I think.
