A Treat….. A Real Treat

_DSC8578_00010qqq

For obvious reasons visits to see our Great Granddaughter Esmee, have been very rare over the past 6 months.  Today we had an opportunity to pop in for a short visit.  Boy, how she has grown.

We were also lucky to find her at home, she is normally down at the stables with her mum.  Esmee may only be 2 years and 8 months but she is quite an accomplished horsewoman, a real love for horses.  A love as you can see which she continues once she gets home.  Her Electric Pony gets lots and lots  of love…

Esmee loves life and loves to tease.  One moment she can pose, act shy, be coy, serious… then boisterous all in the blink of an eye.

  

It was fun, just a shame, that in this strange world, that visits are so far apart.  But at least Esmee is happy and full of life…. and now we are happier too.

Memories … and a Wishful Thought

DSC_1504bb

I miss not having been to the Coast this year.  The sound of the wind and the breaking of waves over beach or rocks, the smell of  seaweeds and salt, with the call of Gulls overhead, it is shear magic.  It is a wish I am not sure that will be fulfilled in the near future.  So I am left with memories.  Memories of visiting St. Abbs on the East Coast of Scotland in the Scottish Borders.

The view above is from St Abbs harbour wall looking across Starney Bay to headland of St. Abbs Head.  The Bay is a magnet for Scuba Divers, a sub aqua hotspot.

A memory true…but something else to look forward to….
