Thanks for a great year!

It might come as no surprise to you to find that my most popular posts this year were my walks.  Along the shore came out marginally ahead, and I only have to look at the blue sky and shimmering sea to want to be transported back there myself.

Could anywhere be more different from the Algarve than Fountains Abbey, in Yorkshire?  But I did have a blue sky day, again.  And it WAS beautiful!

But I was delighted that my personal favourite was popular too.  The Village of Giverny was very special to me because I spent my Silver Wedding anniversary there. (with a certain other someone too, of course!)  I’d wanted to visit for many years, and it totally did not disappoint.

Isn't this perfection?

Isn’t this perfection?

Monet’s garden at Giverny was one of the most enchanting places I have ever been.  How about you?  What was the highlight of your year?

I don’t have much of a plan in place for next year, but I’m pretty sure that I’ll still be out and about walking.  And you are all more than welcome to join me.  We’ll stop and have a cuppa and a chat somewhere, won’t we?

I really just wanted to thank you all for making this such a happy year of blogging for me.  I look at the world differently when I know that I’m going to be sharing it with you.  Wishing you all a New Year full of love and kindness.


  1. Looks like a fabulous year of blogging, Jo…. looking forward to plenty more of the same in 2015! The village of Giverny was my favourite one too…. so gorgeous! And I remember that anchor cemetery… it certainly left an impression 🙂


  2. I thoroughly enjoyed the walks through distant places and the marvelous stories you shared, Jo. Happy New Year, a day or so late but still in time for the rest of the year! Smiles, Robin
