summer memories

Sharing some photos with you of what we got up to over the summer. It seems so long ago now! So many lovely memories. We had a gorgeous week in beautiful Dorset, picnicking, sunbathing, sightseeing and relaxing. Incredibly beautiful!

Lulworth Cove, a short walk from Durdle Door

Durdle Door

Cute cottages, stunning views and beautiful beaches

What a wonderful week we had!

We also went on a little road trip to a beautiful part of North Yorkshire called Malham. This view was from the top of Malham cove, four hundred steps up! Well worth the climb.

Sun, gorgeous views and food. Doesn't get much better than this for me.

We walked four miles the first day and seven and a half the next! Spectacular scenery everywhere we looked.

Stone walled pastures

No summer is complete for me without a day trip to my happy place, Scarborough. Beautiful weather, an empty beach and a picnic. Perfect!

Looking forward to Autumn though with the smell of logs on the wood burner, cosy nights in, pumpkins, candles and chunky scarfs. Every season has a reason to be loved.

Have a great week lovelies.
