We live 20kms from the sea and have seen it quite a bit this summer with having visitors in May and June and then Possum all July and August and into September. Mostly go for lunch or a stroll but I did actually spend one pm just flopped on a rug while t'other pair did daft things like going in the water!
Took my scientists for a stroll along the beaches and they loved it. The Belgian coast is a mere 60kms long and very "developed" but our bit is not so much and has views along the coast to La Rochelle and across to Ile de Ré so they were thrilled.
I have been to the dentist this morning. More filling replacement. Such fun and more to come in November..... I've been bitten again so itchy bits in the night and Cosmos was very playful so I am functioning on caffeine. Went to the SM afterwards and they now have their autumn wine displays all geared up and are working on the Xmas displays behind screens. Thence to a new, to me, garden centre where I found penstemons reduced and bought 2 to take cuttings plus some hardy cyclamen for my winter pots and some spring bulbs to grow thru them.
Horses can be stupid about what they eat. I planted out a lovely Korean Abies after it had served as our Xmas tree one year. They stretched their necks and ate all down one side so it is now a lop-sided, crown lifted tree. Did the same to an oak I planted too close to their paddock but it has recovered well.
I hope your aches and pains are better today DL and Busy. Feet and bruised ribs can hurt for ages so do be careful. Good luck with the new wardrobe FG. Greetings to all not mentioned. Hope you all have a good day. Downhill to the weekend now, honest.
