Just a little journal page with one of my favourite Stampotique stamps - Agatha Star. As I love to star gaze on Summer nights I am joining in at Art Journal Journey with Elizabeth's theme of 'Summertime Love'
Last week while away at our caravan we decided to visit one of our favourite places for an easy walk - Arnside.
We visit here right through the year - the skies are always interesting and we can walk along the pathway by the sea fairly easily when the tide is out as it was last week.
I took some shots on the way back as the wind wasn't blowing in my face by then.
This cafe seems to have closed down
If you look closely you will see a train - we sometimes catch this train to Grange-Over-Sands - the views are amazing!
We had taken a little picnic which, had it not been so windy, would have been eaten while sitting on one of the many benches instead of in the car. We enjoyed watching the birds though including six or seven Little Egrets.
After we had eaten we walked in the opposite direction past the railway station.
This path was what we were looking for…it leads to Sandside..where we took these photos. There is a car park halfway along but it is only a disabled carpark! We didn't walk this time but now we know where we can get on to it!
Back over the station bridge and on to ….
We called in to Beetham Nurseries - they have a tea room and a larger airier cafe where we had a coffee(we also had a scone but had eaten before I took this photo)"I suppose you want a smile?"
The cafe was just about to shut when I took this on the way out!
I also bought a Calendula which I have pushed into a hole in our wall - I am hoping it will spread!
My favourite part of the garden now looks like this..
The white Hebes has all sorts of insects on it!
Finally, yes, I'll go in a minute….we were treated to this at the end of a rainy evening..
…all in the space of half an hour!
Wishing everyone a Happy T day!
Thanks for looking! Chris
