This is England......

I went to the Isle of Wight last week, just for a couple of days.....
 We had sun and sand and picked things.......
And we had rain and wind and took shelter in a pub, ate crab sandwiches, drank pints ......
And watched the waves.....
And then we walked in the sunshine along the coast......
And sat in the garden and ate lunch........
Everywhere we went we always took the weather......

Top tip: Civil Wars new CD, aptly titled: Civil Wars, is as brilliant as their last and perfect to dance the rainy-day-blues away; so sad they will no longer play together again.

  1. So British and so lovely ..... haven't been to the Isle of Wight for years ..... Beach huts, Victoria Plums, blackberry picking and miles of empty sand with a few British tomatoes thrown in for good measure { .... and,a little bottle of Merlot as an hommage to our French friends over the Channel!! } XXXX

  11. Oh I miss England because when you hit the beach there is no complacency and you really take everything in. Would have loved one of those bevvies and crab sambos

  14. Very true - quintessentially England. Dodging the weather and hardly even noticing you are doing it....while enjoying it when there are flashes of sun.

  16. This is one place that I haven't gotten to yet since I have been living here in the UK. Seeing these photos, it has now shot to a higher position on the to do list. Lovely.
