Home animals Day Trips

Last week, with my husband off work on holidays, we had a week of days out and about. We visited gardens, went to the seaside (twice), a garden centre, for walks, we had picnics and meals out and throughly enjoyed a lovely week with very good weather (only a shower or two).

So this is a post full of photos of our week at home and all the flora and fauna and scenery we encountered along the way!

Well I had to leave my calling card, didn’t I!!! 😉

If you made it to the end, thank you for your perseverance!
Being a blogger makes you look harder ~ don’t you think!!!

Happy new week everyone. 🙂

So glad you had such a lovely week and plenty of sunshine too by the look of it. Great photos all of them.

What lovely photos Vivienne you obviously had some super days out and much better weather than we had here. I spotted some shells there 🙂
Have a good and hopefully dry week.

What a great week you had! Loved seeing your wonderfully varied pictures, so many interesting things where you are! It’s so true, blogging really does make you look harder and appreciate things much more 🙂
Have a lovely week.

Lovely images of a happy week Vivienne – love those painted telephone kiosks! The coast looks beautiful and serene, and I’m so glad you had some good weather to go with your days out. I agree re: the bloggers eye, you notice the beauty in the less obvious, simple, and often everyday things.

Wonderful photos Vivienne, though I’m not quite sure that that cow wanted its picture taken. You’ve captured your week beautifully. xx

Love all the variety, Vivienne. It looks like it was a good week to be out and about. Today I’m having a day out—-Chinese food, window shopping, etc.

Hoping you’ll have a good week ahead.

Thanks for taking us along on your mini break Vivienne.
I really enjoyed your pictures. The multi coloured phone boxes made me smile.
Liked your message in the sand also but my favourite one is of the pretty shells and pebbles.

Just Lovely! There seems to be a deplorable lack of gardens and parks where I live at the moment, so I always enjoy traveling with you to yours.

It looks like a wonderful time was had! I think being Blogger’s does make us more observant and appreciative of what is around us. The photos are stunning. I love the ‘moody cow’ face and the blue butterfly!!! x

Hello there! So pleased you like them. Where abouts did you visit? We always go to Juan Le Pins next to Antibes.

LOVE those phone boxes!!

Lovely! Am I imagining or is the weather better at yours (here not so much) too? You seem to have had a great week, and spotted all the prettiness around us. And your calling card – but naturally!

Many greetings from Finland again!

Yours,
Mia

These are great pictures Vivienne, it looks like you had some lovely days out and reasonable weather too. Love the trees on first pic, the groovy telephone boxes, Celtic crosses and that handsome cow! x
