T stands for……..taking a break….

yes, another one!
We went off for a few days to our caravan last week! The weather wasn't too brilliant but we had a lovely time!
On Thursday we had to go and pay bill so we took a detour via Arnside - a place we love at any time of the year!
The sun came out and the mist slowly rose from the hill tops
 We only stopped long enough for a quick walk and a coffee (I felt too embarrassed to take a photo as the table next to us was very close!)
As we left a look down the bay was looking interesting!
We drove around the corner and along to Sandside where the clouds and reflections were even more atmospheric so of course we had to stop!

This next one is hubby's photo…
This poor seagull was being dive bombed by a couple of others and kept ducking down as they flew at him!
Don't be deceived by the sand in these views - there are quick sands all around!
The blue sky in the distance was the direction we were headed next.
By the time we were almost there the clouds were not looking good!

But they passed over quickly and we had some time to buy some Christmas presents in Kendal and bargain new raincoats for us both!

Of course - it being Tuesday(only just here)I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday

We went for lunch at one of our favourite places to eat - Baba Ganoush….
….and hubby turned the tables on me - I thought he was just checking his shots from earlier! As you can see he had tea and I had water with a slice of lemon.
The meal?
Delicious! Tuna for hubby, veggie burger for me!

Thanks for looking! I can see that I am going to have to catch up with some of you tomorrow! Chris

Oh those clouds and reflections - they are awesome! I love both and love to take and share photos of them. For these ones I definitely would have stopped, too. Those burgers look very inviting, I can see why you like this place.
Happy T Day!

Lots of memories for me with these photographs as went that way often when we lived in Cumbria. I still try to persuade Vic to go that way on the train instead of the Newcastle route but it does take such a long time to get to Whitehaven that way.

Lovely photographs and you and your husband--pleased he turned the tables on you Chris.

Happy T Day

Love Chrissie xx

Stunning photographs, that looks like one amazing trip!! What wonderful memories you will have!!

I apologize for my lack of visits lately, hopefully when my holidays start at the end of the week, time will allow to come by more regularly again...

Beautiful photos, the vies are breathtaking. Quicksand, oh no, that stuff kills animals! That poor seagull, I wonder why they were dive bombing him? Jealous maybe, because he's so pretty! lol. Looks like you had fun Chris. :)

Talk about running late. I can't believe your host failed to visit on Tuesday. I apologize once again for being so far behind. It seems to be how I've been these past few days.

That sand looked dangerous and really, really cold. Of course, it could be because I am cold, too.

Your meal looked wonderful, and I loved the way the tea pot was covered. I would eat either of these sandwiches with you. Sneaky hubby, but I LOVED that you were smiling.

Thanks for sharing these photos with us, as well as hubby's tea and your water for T this Wednesday (because I'm running so far behind here!).

BTW, when are you going to learn to drive on the right side of the road?

AS always, I enjoyed every one of your pictures. Great picture too Chris. I always hate having my picture taking.
So you are into healthy eating - water and lemon when you could have had a nice cup or tea? A veggie burger? Was it good? The roll looks fantastic. I could have had just that with butter!
You gotta love that red tea cozy!
Merry Christmas Chris!
