H.P.B. Rocha Brava 4

It was a good time to visit Portugal as there were so many wild flowers

This is the lighthouse near our complex (I thought I'd straightened it!)

H.P.B. Rocha Brava 3

This is Centianes Beach which was the nearest to the complex and easy to walk to by road.
The walk back via the cliff top path was certainly 'mountaineering'

H.P.B. Rocha Brava, Portugal

Just back from our first holiday in Portugal.
We went to the Holiday Property Bond site - Rocha Brava

This was our first floor apartment...

Everything was brand new as it had very recently been refurbished

Flamsteadbury Wood Bluebells

Walked up to Flamsteadbury Wood yesterday to see the bluebells which are almost at their best. We must go up again in a few days time.

Footpath from Flamsteadbury Lane to St.Mary's church.
Much drier than when we last walked along it!

Settling in a bit more...
Still can't touch them!

Two New Arrivals

We have two very timid kittens from Cat Protection.
They were abandoned at three weeks old and are now eighteen weeks old.
We've had them since Wednesday but haven't been able to touch them yet!
Each day they are getting a bit braver, so we are getting there - slowly.
This is a little girl we have called Saffron (Saffy)
This is a little boy we have called Turmeric (Eric)
More photos to follow, of course.

Rainbow Cake

We went to our neighbour's grand-daughter's first birthday party and had some rainbow cake.
Imagine the artificial colourings in that!
Very nice though...
