DD had lots of work to do and just wanted to sit and be quiet so DH and I took Ruby along the sea front. This year we will not be allowed on the beach as they have a major refurbishment to redo the sea defences. It is a mammoth job. At the moment they are delivering large (over 3 tonne each) bolders by sea.They were scheduling a drop at 8.30 last night so we (along with many others) went out well wrapped up and watched the boat manover right onto the shoreline and unload four containers of rock. Fantastic to watch - DH managed to get some photos.
We took this photo this morning- the piles in the foreground are the ones delivered last night - they certainly came in close to the shore.
DH and I also popped into the town - I needed to go to the stitching shop. Unfortunately there was not enough interest in the whitework course so I won't be teaching it there this year. I was disappointed but it's my hobby not a job so really it doesn'tt matter. I will still be charting it up to hopefully sell some for charts for my charities.
I also popped into the haridressers to book a manicure for DD and a facial for me - it's our treat when we go away. DH and I also decided to pop into the pub - just to make sure the beer/wine was still ok :)
On the way back to the caravan there is a field on one side of the road and there were some absolutely gorgeous lambs running around. Ruby was fasinated but didn't bark. The lambs were jumping and skitting all over the place - so cute.
It was lovely to go back to church this morning, I do miss it when we are here at home. No-one knew we were up for the weekend so they were surprised to see me - very welcoming as always. Next time we're there it's the Bank Holiday Monday so I have added my name to the tea/coffee morning rota and have promised some cakes.
Saturday night - when we got back from watching the ships - I made a few more cards. These are best wishes or new home ones,
and these are birthday ones.
It was lovely to be back in Wales, and it's only 14 sleeps until we go again.
