A walk on the seafront

To clear our heads a bit this morning, we went for a walk along the seafront. The boys all liked walking out on the mud, and Ruby got very muddy on her white fur!

Grae made the Leigh Times recently with his photo and story of a visiting Seal.

Surprise Party for Siv's 50th

We went down to see Fi and Grae along with Paul and Anne down at Westcliff. When we got there we discovered Fi and Anne had arranged a surprise party for Siv's recent 50th Birthday. There was an amazing turnout of people, none of whom we knew were going along! We all had a great time, the Just Dance game on the Wii was fun as well! Many thanks to Fi and Anne for arranging things and to everyone for turning up!

Autumn Colours in Valentine's Park

We took a trip over to Valentine's Park to enjoy the Autumn sunshine and unseasonably warm weather. While we were there we fed the squirrels and bought some food at the Farmer's Market.

Corporate Greed Protests

I've just taken a walk down to St. Paul's to have a look at the ongoing 'Corporate Greed' protests. Quite a lot of tents and protestors there....and also a lot of press!

Barcelona - Final Night

On our last night, we had a walk along the seafront, as well as taking in the fair along the harbour, as well as some of the shops there before heading back. The following morning Eva and Ole headed down to Alicante to attend a wedding, while Siv and I sadly had to come home.

Barcelona - Parc Guell

On our last day, we went up to Parc Guell for a look around. It was hot and busy as usual, but dramatic as ever.

Barcelona - Tibidabo Trip

We took a trip in glorious sunshine up to Tibidabo, taking the metro, tram and funicular railway to get there. The trip was worth it, and we even went up to the feet of Jesus at the top of the huge church.
