Vacation Anticipation …

Dear All,

Just dropping you a little note to say that I won’t be around in ‘blogland’ next week to visit your blogs or leave comments.  We are taking advantage of what the weathermen say is going to be a good week for sunshine and are going to the coast to wander along its sandy shores and breathe in the invigorating salty air – and it will definitely be a computer-free zone.

We hope to do a lot of walking and visiting our favourite haunts, eating lots of delicious sea food and generally relaxing and enjoying the change of scenery.

The waves of the sea help me get back to me. ~ Jill Davis


“I must go down to the sea again, To the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship, And a star to steer her by. ~ John Masefield

I will leave you with a few pictures that I have taken this week in the Rosebank garden.

Looking forward to visiting all your blogs on our return.  Best wishes.

I'm going to have a vacation!
      I'll leave all my housework behind,
      And not have to do any cooking;
      I'll forget all the daily grind!
I'll bask in the sunshine—don't worry!—
      And so all the things that are right;
      I'll enjoy myself every minute,
      And I'll go to a dance each night!
But when my vacation is over
      And I pack my glad rags, alone,
      I'll be happy—so very happy!—
      For, really, there's no place like home!
~Gertrude Tooley Buckingham, "My Vacation" (1940s)
