Happy Holidays ... Part two

On Day two, we ate breakfast outside the trailer as the weather was dry and hotting up, the view was pretty great too! (I'm saving some pics for Photoshop Friday!)

We visited the western tip of the island, Allum Bay and went on a boat trip out the the Needles.

In the afternoon the kids hung around in a tree!

On Day three we found a little bay called Steephill Cove and they werent kidding either!

Some sun soaking was followed by tea and cupcakes ( I had two!!) in the company of Helen my pal and host from Vintage Vacations uk.

  1. Cupcakes are so trendy at the moment aren't they? I've asked for a cupcake cook book (trying saying that after a few) for my birthday, may post piccies if I make some decent ones. Looks like a fun holiday!

  2. yeah l'd like to know how to make them look so full, and not like my usual iced ackes with 100s and 1000s....l think Nigella has a recipe, l keep meaning to look. I think the secret is an icing bag and amercian frosting!!

  3. Hey there birthday lady!! Happy 50th to you! I did that last November. I really don't like the sound of it but I really don't feel any different?

    Thank you for stopping by afterthoughts! I love new bloggin friends! That hubby saver napkin was sort of a joke for my family ;) I have a brother in law who always has something on the front of his shirt and he never bothers to change it before going out in public! It's so EMBARRASSING! I can't stand it! So maybe my sista might get the hint! Was that mean or what??

    Anywho, I love your pictures, they are wonderful and looks like yall are having a blast!


Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
