The Changing Seasons – May 2019

The Changing Seasons – May 2019

The Changing Seasons post, inspired by the lovely Sarah at Secret Art Expedition and hosted by Su at Zimmerbitch.

Welcome to the British summertime or, rather, the sporadic days of sun we are having! It never lasts long here, but it’s fabulous when it happens!

I started the month of May in Fleetwood, near Blackpool, with my sister and niece. We stayed in a lovely caravan and had a few great days out.

We went to Lytham St Annes and took a walk along the beach to the sea. It looked like it wasn’t that far out but we walked and walked and never reached it. It was at least 3 miles out which apparantly happens because the sand is very flat. We gave up because my niece, Amayah, started to get tired!

Blackpool next…

We visited the local farm…

Back home and the following week was a Bank Holiday, so me, my brother and his girlfriend went out for Sunday Funday! It was a fab day out and we drank our way though the afternoon and into the evening.

Sunday Funday!

I went to Portugal for a friend’s wedding which I was so happy about. Living across the other side of the world, I missed lots of events like this, so I was ecstatic that I was able to go.

I went to Albufeira for the day…

One of my best friends got married and it was such a beautiful day..

I took a walk along the beach to Vilamoura where I met up with friends for a few afternoon drinks which went down very well in the sunshine.

Lastly, one of my photos received special recognition – Celebrity Award at Viewbug

So, that was my May! Wishing everyone a happy week and summer ahead!

  1. Busy month! But seems like a really fun one. I like weddings… Everyone is happy and dancing, and there is cake! Congrats on the award. Your pic of the bird is fantastic, no wonder that you won. Much love my friend. xxx

    1. Thank you Dominique! I love weddings too! There is so much nature in our back garden here, I just sit there sometimes and take photos as the birds and other critters come visiting! Much love back at you! xx

  2. Glad to read that you are still getting around. Good to see the photos of that area of Portugal. I lived there for a while when I was 20. That’s a long time ago now.
    Sent you some lovely photos of dragon fruit in flower next to our new house but didn’t get a reply. Maybe they didn’t make the trip.
    Hope you are well and enjoying the Thai style weather that the UK is getting.

    1. Mike! I have just replied to your email, I am so sorry it took so long! Yeah, that part of Portugal is lovely, expensive getting taxis everywhere though! The weather last week was scorching here, I was melting!! It’s cooled down again this week, positively chilly after the heatwave! Typical British weather. Thank you for commenting and reminding me about your email. The dragon fruit are gorgeous x

  3. I’ve heard about the beach at Lytham St Annes — doesn’t the tide come in really quickly?
    Looks like a fun month — hope you get more sunshine in July.

    1. It does! We were careful. We were keeping an eye on the diggers on the beach. A guy said that if they go, then get off the beach immediately! Hope you are enjoying nice weather too 🙂
