Summer 2016 ended and the garden provided a final bunch of gladioli.
I had an alcohol free September so enjoyed the Boscastle Beer festival on October 1st!
|Bands played in the Rainbow Marquee. Nick on harmonica. Andy on bongo.|
We visited Sophie in Switzerland and spent plenty of time in the stylish bar she and her friends opened in Lausanne.
Birthday celebrations. 'Now I'm 64!'
I enjoy volunteering one day a week at Fremington Manor Residential Care Home.
|We started tidying the rock garden in the Autumn.|
|Looks nice now the bulbs are beginning to flower.|
Great excitement as Harry and his boss Andy finish installing our woodburner.
|Hold on Harry!|
|Storm Cowl on!|
|First lighting. Need to get it up to correct temperature.|
|We bought this stove over 20 years ago. We never used it but moved it between several houses and storage facilities.|
I'm glad it is alight at last!
|Plenty of wood thanks to Paul's lumberjack skills.|
|Return visit to Shropshire for Border Bridge Club Christmas party. A lovely weekend!|
Back home and our own Christmas party.
|Just waiting for the guests to arrive.|
|Christmas Eve and the stockings are up!|
|Christmas morning. Happy Christmas!|
|I'm pleased with my knitting!|
New Year's Day 2017.
Celebrated traditionally at the Cobweb in Boscastle (and start of another alcohol free month for me).
|I seem to be short of pictures of Joe and Soulla so here they are when they visited last year.|
February Half Term and a visit from Joanne.
|On top of the cliffs at Valley of the Rocks|
|A long walk down but we have the beach to ourselves.|
My first visit to Clovelly
|A pretty house decorated with shells and pebbles.|
|Fishing boats on the beach|
|Two tourists enjoying the sun!|
|Lobster pots waiting to go to sea.|
|Final photo of the beach!|
I've started work in the garden. Looking forward to the coming year in Devon and hoping for plenty of visitors.
