Sunlit Sunday in February

1st February 

So far 2015 has proved to be a good year, we have already had some ups and downs but as a family we are strong and positive.  This will be a good year.

I do however feel the need for sun and to feel the warmth on my face, to close my eyes and face upwards toward that huge warm glow in the sky...

The days are slowly beginning to become longer, the nights shorter.  The bulbs in the garden are pushing through and early varieties, such as snowdrops are already gracing our gardens.  But still despite this hope of life, I need the sun...

So I turn to memories and photographs to warm me as I sit here at home with the log fire roaring and a glass of red wine in hand, warming me both inside and out...

Dolphins whilst crossing the Atlantic


Arrival in Barbados after 26 days at sea


The beach we had promised
we would take the children to


We arrived 2 days before Christmas, it was magical


It really did look like this


All to ourselves...


Sunset on another wonderful day

  Keep warm on this Sunlit Sunday

    1. Wouldn't it be great to be able to be magically transported when we needed some down time or Vitamin D.

  12. Wow! What adventurers to arrive at this paradise all by yourselves! Yes, I'm sure those blues and whites are exactly that colour, (a little different from the Aegean blues and whites), unbelievable as they may seem!

    Have a wonderful week!
