Home from Home!

We have just returned from a few days away at our caravan, although probably at the moment I should say we've dropped in at home for a couple of days to pick up mail etc.!(and to pick up GD from school again, starting this week)

We both love spending time there, not just because of the fabulous views but because we relax more! 
We love to go out and about - the Vintage by the Sea was on at Morecambe over the weekend(photos to come)but we love the sunsets, walking by the canal and I especially love watching the birds.
This weekend I counted 29 sparrows resting on the hedge in the sun!
just a few of them
they ate quite a lot of food

the view from where I sit!
We watch the Jackdaws disappear over the crag

I even caught the dawn the other morning!
I also have some crafting supplies at the caravan so this weekend using a page in my journal I made this page
Some torn mop up paper towel which may have been from making the little scrap with my Dina Wakely 'strong' woman 'from the past', the bird, also Dina Wakely has been framed with a border stamp. The quote is from a free magazine set, as is the heart and the scroll.

I would like to enter in

and also to link to

I hope you enjoyed the peep through mine!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Fantastic views from your caravan. No wonder you like to spend time there. Wonderful. I would too. My back yard birds are so plentiful. Sparrows galore and many of the small birds here as well. Hawks and eagles too. xox

What a perfectly lovely view from your window reflected beautifully in your lovely journal page.
I try to live by those words Chris.
Your photos and words had me imagining the sound of all of those birds too :-)
Thank you for sharing.

It looks like such a magical place - I always look at the photos with such pleasure (and who needs a sea view on top of that - that would just be greedy!!). Lovely page - the depth of colour in the background and the delightful little bird just make me happy.
