Been on my jollies

I know I've had a few weeks of not commenting as much as I would normally do, but the very busy end of term was very quickly followed by a two week holiday in North Wales. The weather was a bit mixed, but it was very relaxing and the camera got lots of exercise!
These two photos were taken at South Stack on Holy Island, Anglesea.
We didn't go down the 400+ steps to the lighthouse, but enjoyed a walk round the RSPB reserve and cliff paths, getting the cobwebs blown out!
Now I don't often like photos of myself, but Meg has taken a few very flattering ones recently, like my new profile picture. She took this one without me knowing, and I think she captured the moment, so I decided to share it with you. I was watching dragonflies and damselflies resting on the lily pads.
Well, I'm off to get reacquainted with my craft table and over the next few days I hope I will have chance to drop in to see some of your lovely blogs. Please excuse me if I don't comment on all of them. You all seem to have been very busy whilst I've been away! Thanks for all the wonderful comments you have left me on my DT posts whist I've been away. They are very much appreciated x

Welcome back, Sally! Lovely photos - I look forward to seeing the rest! Meg's picture of you is great. Tell her I think she could have a career as a portrait photographer if she wants! See you on Tuesday - I'm really looking forward to our day out. xx

Lovely to have you back Sally and thanks for sharing those beautiful photos including the one of you.

I always think the photos we don't know are being taken are always the best - unless we've just got out of bed that is, Lol!

Welcome back, Sally - you've been missed! Funnily enough, I've just arrived home from North Wales and the Rhyl Air show, chasing Steam trains on the way - that's that you get for living with a photographer, lol. Glad you had a good time. Looking forward to seeing the August dragonflies myself when we get some sunshine! Bet the RSPB place was cool. We'll be out and about in Wales this next couple of weeks, so I may even end up there, as we did mention Anglesey!
