We spent May Bank Holiday weekend at the seaside, where Dave’s parents live. I just love getting away from the city on our visit’s to the coast. On Sunday, whilst in Kent, we decided to go for a picnic and headed for Dover’s Kearsney Abbey, it was my first visit to the gardens, it really is a pretty place, as you can see.
The day trip was a family affair, we were accompanied by Dave’s grandparents Val and John and his sister Clare. Following a yummy picnic, we left both grandparents watching the activities at the boating lake, whilst we headed up the hill – I wasn’t wearing the most suitable shoes for taking on a hill. Going up was fine, it was trying to make it back down and remain upright that was scary! Coco enjoyed the long walk and, as always we had great fun hanging out with Clare. After our hike we joined up with grandparents John and Val for an ice cream; simple pleasures and such a lovely Bank Holiday trip!
Weather wise, it’s tricky to know what to wear just now in the UK. The sun was shining, but it was a tad chilly in the shade or when there was gust of wind, I regretted ditching my tights, but braved through the chill and enjoyed catching some rays on my legs and raising my vitamin D levels. I think a striped top is my ‘go-to’ fashion staple at the moment and teaming it with this midi skirt is great for the changeable in-betweenness of spring and summer weather we are having at the moment.
Next month we will be heading off on a family holiday, you might remember my blog last year from our family trip to Spain? This time we are heading to Scotland and many members of Dave’s clan are readying themselves to join us. I’m quite excited, I have never been to Scotland before and it’s not long till we go. I guess my trip up the hill side at Kearsney Abbey was an eye opener and a reminder to pack sensible shoes! I hope you had a good weekend too!
