Week in the Life–Exercise and flowers

Today was all about exercise (well this morning was!) and flowers.  I have bee trying to get up a bit earlier this week to get out for my dog walk before it gets busy.  I have been waiting for a nice sunny morning to take some pictures, but it just hasn’t happened this week!

This morning we walked along the beach at high tide.  (I have written down the tide times for my album)

Then I decided to go for my weekly swim early  - again to avoid the crowds (it’s school holidays here in the UK), and I swam my usual 30 lengths.  I found it quite gruelling today, but persevered as I wanted to report here that I had done my 30!  It’s a 33.3m pool, so that’s a whole kilometre that I swim!

After swimming I bought a coffee and went to sit in Beach House Gardens to drink it and look at the lovely floral displays, and memorial to the war pigeons! Carrier pigeons were used to send messages behind enemy lines and this little memorial remembers the bravest of them!

Then I sorted my sewing projects, quite flowery!  Here’s my ‘Tuscan Village Scene’ and a close up of the window box:

We had a bit of fun taking photos at dinner time:
