A Holiday of the Best Kind

We have just returned from the MOST fabulous holiday in Cornwall.  The weather was kind we had sunshine most days even if it was for only an hour or so in the evening.  We laughed and laughed and laughed.  We ate lots and lots and lots (sorry Diet Police - I have received your caution) will be back to being 'good' as from today.  I took more than three photos - last holiday my total photo take was three which was very poor. 

The girls enjoyed painting with water colours on the beach and achieved some fab results. Might have to have a go myself. 

Belle enjoyed a tractor ride.  I like to say we made this but we didn't.

This is a most exciting photo - dolphins!! Yes we saw dolphins swimming across the bay at Praa Sands whilst we were having a beach BBQ. It was so exciting.  I didn't think I would be so giddy on seeing dolphins but I was.  There were about 12 in total jumping up out of the water and generally splashing around having a good time.   They stayed around for about 20 minutes and then swam off into the distance.  Priceless and it made our holiday.  The Nannie was so excitited she phoned my two sisters to tell them all about it although by mistake she phoned her home phone and left herself a message.  Apparently the message is hilarious and she is keeping it for us to listen to later.  My LSJ has listened and nearly weed.

I have more photos to share but I am going to post those another day.  We are surrounded by washing, ironing and all the usual holiday stuff that needs sorting.  So I shall say bye for now and I will pop back shortly to show you the rest of our holiday

Looks like a good time was had by all. Glad you had sunshine and lots of laughter too, all things that make for a happy holiday. I am sure your diet will not have suffered as much as mine did one year. I gained a stone on holiday... yes, a whole 14 pounds. Was in big trouble at fat club on return! How lucky to see dolphins, I love the way they look like they are smiling at you :)
