Chatsworth House

We went to Chatsworth House around this time last year. The picture below was taken on the grounds overlooking the stone bridge that gives access to house. We have been to Chatsworth a few times and both of us love visiting, we love walking around the grounds and visiting the local farm shop. We always make sure we visit the shop before we make our way home as the meat is fresh and very tasty!

I was very busy last week and wasn’t able to take any pictures for the 52 week challenge, I hope to continue with it this week. Hubby has kindly offered to choose the subjects for each week and this week’s subject is…Clouds!


England: Devon and Somerset

The photo below may seem to have been taken in an exotic location but it was in fact taken in the South of England. After we came back from our short stay in India and before we were due back to work (with me feeling better after taking my antibiotics); we decided to take a short trip to the south of the country. We spent a couple of days in Devon and Somerset resting and enjoying the beautiful weather (an odd occurrence here in Britain). It was a mini honeymoon we got to have before going back to work.

Wales: The Ffestiniog Railway

This is my travel Thursday post, we had a power cut yesterday and wasn’t able to finish my post.

My family came to England in 2011, it was the first time they were all here. Hubby and I decided to take them to see as much as we could in the three weeks they had here. We went to London, North Wales, Scotland, York and the Lake District. While in Wales, we took them on a steam train from Porthmadog to Blaenau Ffestiniog. It was one of my favourite activities that we did while they were here, a very unique experience!

Here is my favourite photo of the day πŸ™‚

Isle of Bute: Firth of Clyde

Travel Thursday:

The picture below was taken four years ago in the Isle of Bute, Scotland. Bute is very beautiful, we fell in love of the Isle as soon as we arrived. We drove to the southern part of the island and made our way uphill to the ruins of St Blane’s Church. The picture below was taken at the top of the hill which has views of the Firth of Clyde and the Isle of Arran.

Day 168 – Bank Holiday Monday

Day 168 was a bank holiday here in the UK and it was an absolutely beautiful day. We went over to my in-laws for the first barbecue of the year (and I hope is not the last one, weather has not been great ever since!). We sat outside sunbathing and chatting while we waited for my father-in-law to cook the burgers and sausages. I love sunny days, my Latino blood needs the sun to keep my body running. We all had a great time and truly enjoyed the bank holiday. At the end of the day, we made our way to the Marshes to take some pictures and as it was to be expected we saw a beautiful sunset. Can’t wait for the next bank holiday πŸ™‚
