Hayling Island Wind down

It's been a belter of a day as Lewi and Greg were sailing together in an RS800 organised by John Mather.  Popsie and I went cycling around the Island after watching them getting the hang of twin trapezing. After the day was nearly over Greg and John went for some fun in the slot arcades, before we tucked in to some tasty chips on the beach.

Then the larking around...

I always prefer this sort of image of people I know, laid back sort of pictures you might call them. Just candid moments in amongst the more mundane passages of life, but real ones nonetheless.

Candles on the Castle

For Greg's 14th birthday bash we went to Studland. At the beginning of the day, however heavy traffic slightly altered the plans and we went to Arne en route. This was good as Arne is beautiful but also quiet.

The sand castle was built after our picnic lunch, and then we headed down to Studland.

Badminton, swimming in the sea, running aroud the and like mad things; we had a great time.

And finally the end of the day was spent at Swanage eating tasty vege pasty and chips on the beach... Greg's favourite!

On the beach, making my way north somewhere near Walberswick. I guess I planned it like this, but in focus. However I like the vagueness in this self portrait.

The wonders of Modern Technology

A screengrab from this afternoon. Thought I'd put in a quick call via Facetime with my sister Joanna as she's been visiting my parents in Wales. Remarkably they were with Rena and Jeremy on the bench at Scotts Bay, Llansteffan and the 3G signal was strong enough to convey audio and video picture.

Even managed to get them waving back!

I know we all complain about modern life ruining everything of quality, but this is one truly awesome use of the internet...?

Looking remarkably like the New Forest, although it's Dunwich Heath in Suffolk. I shall post some of my landscape and travel pics here over the next week or so. Top weather in the most part, and lucky to find some great places and people along the way.
