April, the beginning of a new month.  It also signals the approach of Easter and with it the first School Holidays of the year.  I guess many folk, will grasp the opportunity to enjoy a vacation away from home…… the coast undoubtedly one of the prime destinations.

At home or heading to your choice destination……

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

Last of the Summer Days….. maybe


All Aboard the Skylark for a Trip around the Bay

We can hope for a little more summer.  Like everyone else, just how much summer there is left, is out of our control.  Maybe just the odd day here and there, maybe autumns arrival will hold fire for at least another month… who knows.

So a sunny September day, on the banks of the River Dart at Dartmouth, Devon could be just perfect.  This particular sunny day was a couple of years ago…. but the warmth, the ozone aroma and bright sunshine still lingers in the memory bank.  Time for an Ice Cream Cone  🙂

No matter if the weather gods shine on us or not……  Please remember..

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
