A few adventures ...

On Sunday evening we took a little drive down to the seaside, we live about 25 minutes drive away from the coast but it's the North Sea and even though it is late June the thermometer on the car said it was only 10 degrees. The sky was grey, it was old and windy but I dared the freezing water to have a little plodge in the sea. Us Geordies up here in the North East of England call it plodging other people might say paddling, but to be honest paddling sounds rather too posh and ladylike :lol:




So that was Sunday. Today it's been lovely and warm and sunny and this time the car said it was 20 degrees, the sunshine disappeared before tea though and it has rained all night!

This morning I managed to snap these pictures of a Red Kite. Red Kite's were reintroduced into the valley further along from where we live a few years ago and are now breeding. I spotted this chap last week but he was really high in the sky, just a dot really. This morning I looked out of the window and saw him soaring around above the house over the road. I grabbed my little point and shoot as it was handy and went out in the back garden in my pyjamas. They aren't the best quality photographs and I did then go back indoors to get my big camera and put the zoom lens on. Even though I stood on the lawn in my pyjamas for another 20 minutes he didn't come back. Hopefully we'll see him again soon.


I wanted to share this hybrid layout that I made for a lovely friend, I was a bit bored of making cards at the weekend so entertained myself doing this.
