I hope this looks nothing like a mole on a beach. The mole will be relevant later in the post. I thought it about time we had some colour on here. This is only one square intended for a new quilt. Four down and 16 to go. It might be ready at Christmas, not sure exactly what year though.
At the moment the quilt square colours mirror the colours in our garden.
We haven't been in our garden all week, we've been out and about on the beach.
Some of the roads here are not meant for double decker buses.
If we had been right behind the bus and not a few cars away, I would have missed another sign to show you.
It seems we are on a mission to find strange place names. I'm not sure who's window I was looking in, just like to apologise now if anyone saw me and thought I was trying to be nosey.
This is where we were heading for, Slapton Ley. The sea and the beach one side. the Ley on the other. The Ley is a nature reserve for wild birds. Dogs are welcome as long as they are kept on a lead.
There is only so close you can ever get to a Heron.
Especially when Freya seemed more interested in giving the real close up, nose to nose greeting.
Freya might have had to go on her lead here, but on the beach she was free to run and dig where she wanted.
A whole mile of running and digging.
Like a Mole on the beach. We're thinking of attaching a metal detector to her collar... AS IF , but for all the digging she does, all she ever brings back are stones.
For anyone that has used Picnic to add text or enhance their photo's, how sad it's now closing down it's site. Ah, big AH, I am a picnic addict. Nearly all the photo's on Soggibottom or Freya's Catflap Cavalier use Picnic. But fear not, there is another. For all the picnic lovers out there try Befunky.
You can enhance and add text to your photo's.
This is a photo taken today along the beach, Start point in the distance.
The tulip at the top of the post.
The same photo, with a bit of Befunky enhancement again.
I never attempted to enhance this photo, but it gave us the "thought of the day" as we followed it home through the narrow lanes.
When you have no chance of overtaking a large load of manure, stacked high on a trailer being pulled by a tractor, stay well back........... because when it's dry it goes everywhere..... best to keep all the car window's closed too.
Freya can be found over at the Catflap Cavalier as usual.
