Six word Saturday


‘Seaton celebrates’ was a big success!

The sand pies were quite big too (and happy!)

I loved these ladies so much!  Maybe a new Gravatar?

And look what this little girl got to take home on the bus!

All in all, a good day!  The sun shone gently down.  Mike led the t’ai chi group into the water and my ‘crops’ got soaked!  A good time was had by all.  Just one omission!  I forgot to go back for a ‘finished’ photo of the sand sculpture.  It must have been the lure of the icecream.

Have a happy weekend, won’t you, and don’t forget to visit Cate at Show My Face.  You only need six words!



  1. Love your new gravatar – you are such a beautiful girl!!! You will suit together with everyone and in everything. *smile – really like that image of you.
    Love the image with the little girl and her bear – great and pleasant .. full of joy post.

    1. Bless you, hon. I’m ok if I stay well back from the camera 🙂 I went to make Michael some lunch then I have a big heap of ironing to do while he’s at the football and I can put a load of junk on telly. No sunshine so I have no excuses 🙂 Do you still have friends to visit in Smirisham or just go because you love it and for the memories? Hugs, darlin 🙂

      1. I have good friends in Simrishamn that I visit every 5 week. Inger, was like a daughter to mum and she was there for my mum through all the years I lived abroad – so we have a very special bound. And I also have an other couple of friends that I spent time with when I visit mum’s little beautiful home town.
        By the way I want to join your Monday Walk tomorrow … about my walk on my own in Vienna last Monday. I hope I done it right. Added the link and the logo.
        Sunday breakfast hugs

      2. Oh, bless you, Vivi! I’ll look forward to that 🙂
        I was awake early, with the walk in my head, and hoped to get some of it written, but I’ve been catching up with comments, and now the sun has arrived! I may have to breakfast in the garden. The time outdoors is so precious when it gets to this bit of the year. And then it will be Sunday ‘jobs’ 🙂 It might be a very late night tonight 🙂
        It’s lovely that you still have that connection to Simrishamn. Hugs! 🙂

      3. Yes, right thinking … girlfriend – we have overcast today, so enjoy the summer so long as it last. Enjoy your breakfast.
        You’re an early bird, singing before the roster.
        I’m going budget shopping with Inger today … not very relaxing.
        See you at Midnight. *smile

  2. What a relaxed post. I love the shot of you with the blue ones. But I’d miss the familiar gravatar.

    I feel left behind after a week away from the Internet. Where are you packing for?

      1. I did, especially in Slovenia. I got a chance to hang out with some animals :D. That always cheers me up. Are you nervous or excited before your trip? How is packing coming along?

      2. Both! Nervous and excited 🙂 Haven’t started to pack but know pretty much what we need.
        Thanks for spending time with me this morning. I was at t’ai chi and need to go out again soon. It’s horrible adjusting to being back again, and I don’t suppose your workload has got any less 😦

      3. It is horrible to be back, but I will go to Italy (Tuscany) the first week in October :). That is keeping me “alive” 😀 Thank you for spending time with me 😉

  3. So good to make the most of our British Summer when it happens Jo … must remember a builder’s trowel for future beach days then 😉
    Lovely snap of you there with Blue Lady !

      1. I’m OK, thanks Jo….been a bit preoccupied lately, hence no blogging until today. Looking forward to seeing your new Gravatar!

    1. You can drive, right? We’ll take that camper and go places! 🙂
      I love those ladies too, and thank you. In some strange, exotic way, they reminded me of my Lisa. I’m overdue a visit.

      1. Things ok with you? Posting today?
        I was in some gardens yesterday afternoon and they had the cutest little owl sculptures and I thought of you. And then there you were on mine! Magic owls- who needs a genie? 🙂 Hugs!

    1. Hi Lisa 🙂 I’ve been wanting an update for a while but I much prefer to be behind the camera. My blue lady took me by surprise when she took it from my hands. Multi-talented!

  4. Oh, Jo, I wish I could have been there with you; it all looks like such fun. A gorgeous picture of you! Not just because you are elegantly lovely, but because you look very content. I realized I might be able to save this photo of you and begin a photo file of my blogging buddy “portraits” then scroll them for screen saver.

    If I can figure all that out, I’ll have a delightful way to “see” many of you every day!

      1. :-). I don’t know about the blue ladies. I definitely hate clowns, and stilt people are usually a close secind ! But I must admit these two were quite alluring:-) Still … i choose you!

  5. I adore the photo of you with the ‘tall’ blue lady. What a fabulous outing. I am thinking sand sculpture weather is far better than ice sculpture weather. 🙂

    1. I wasn’t too sure what to expect, Jude, but there was lots going on and a good turnout.
      I went to some gardens you would highly approve of this afternoon. Didn’t intend going there initially but I enjoyed them. I’m sure they’ll turn up on here at some point 🙂

  6. I love that picture of you with the seaweed ladies, Jo. You look very happy indeed. 🙂 Ice cream and sand sculptures and lots of fun all around. Looks like the perfect day at the beach. xx

      1. I went to the Chinese embassy on Thursday and they said I can come back Wednesday to pick it up. Once I have it in hand, I’ll buy my one-way ticket! Getting close. Did I tell you Mike and I are taking a trip to Puerto Rico August 9-16?

      2. That’s fabulous news, on both counts, Cathy! Mike’s being really supportive, isn’t he? 🙂
        Rico will be fun! Your dates overlap with our Paris trip (9-14th) I’ll be thinking of you!

  7. What a fun way to spend a day. I can see that little girls is very happy to take that giant fluffy home. I am sure it will grace her bed for years to come 🙂

  8. I don’t know why the beaches always look nicer in other people’s photos than when I’m actually standing there. As always, thanks for bringing me along!

    1. Russell Square isn’t at all a bad venue for t’ai chi. I wouldn’t mind joining you there 🙂
      Thanks, Laura. I quite like it too- it’s distant enough not to show the wrinkles.
