My birthday, new year's eve, at Hope Cove
Hello there! Have you have a lovely christmas time and new year? I did, although it's all a bit of a blur because I've had a horrible virus over the holidays and I'm only just emerging from it now. My head's still spinning but I don't want to delay this post because talk of new year gets old very quickly doesn't it, once the usual routine begins again. :)
My days after christmas have been filled with lovely quiet walks and time with family.
Here are Youngest and Eldest sons at Broadsands in Devon. With their busy lives it's a rare treat to get these two together and to go for a walk with them on a beautiful wintery day!

and it was indeed beautiful as you can see. :)
The next day we walked along the river Dart in Totnes.
It was the last few minutes before the sun started to go down over the horizon.
So peaceful and calm.
My birthday is on new year's eve and I like to spend the day at my favourite place (the sea-side!) no matter what the weather. One year we drove to Cornwall for the day and it hammered down with heavy rain all day but after having travelled all that way, the torrential rain still didn't prevent a visit to the sea!
But this year the weather was gloriously sunny.

But the coast told a different story! This picture of Hope Cove was taken late afternoon, the sun had become quite low, the wind high and the waves were very dramatic!
I made a tiny video of it if you'd like to see. :)
I wish you all a very happy new 2014.
May it bring to you all your wishes and loveliest dreams. xx
