Some sea pictures as promised...
While away we visited Rockliffe for a picnic lunch.
The view from our picnic spot.
These rocks were ideal for rock climbing (so claimed A, N did his best to follow in her footsteps).
It may look like we're miles from anywhere but Rockcliffe is a popular place to visit on a sunny day, and it even had an icecream van (Mr Whippy vanilla with flake and strawberry sauce, it was yummy!)
Nice old phonebox.
A quick peek at Sweetheart Abbey (from the carpark) on the way back to the parents.
Later during our stay we went to Mabie Forest.
Guddling in a little stream. Wild garlic starting to sprout, it'll smell delicious here in a few weeks time.
Anemonies on the forest floor.
Scots pines towering above.
Lastly some shots of my Mum's garden which always looks pretty.
Grape hyacinths. N enjoyed pulling all the little flowers off a few stems, I remember liking to do that too when I was little.
A rather striking Auricula.
And finally the gnome, he's surrounded by anemonies at this time of year.
Beautiful, just beautiful!
Oh my goodness.. how wonderful a time you're having. Great shots, my friend. Did you bring some sea shells home?

Gorgeous - I want to be there. x
I just love rockpools - we don't have such things herein Suffolk so i have to get my fix on holidays!
Oooh I'm green with envy! Hope you're not having snow now the weather's turned cold again!
Rockliffe looks lovely, I haven't been there. I love Mabie but have only ever been in the context of work.....it would be really nice to go as a visitor altho' I always find it hard to switch off if I'm visiting a Forestry Commission forest!
Your mum's garden is so pretty - i guess she has similar taste to you garden-wise?
Thank you for another lovely trip out somewhere new to me. As ever, photographed so beautifully. I have just awarded you with the 'Lieber Blog' because I so enjoy your blog, Anne.
