Back again

We stayed the first night in Huntingdon,en route to Folkstone,but we had a lttle trip to St Ives.What a lovely little place.We had an early evening drink overlooking the river.
Our first night in France was in Abbeville and we always like to go to the village of St Riquier.It is only small but has this amazing cathedral and an art gallery/museum next door.It never ceases to delight us.

This was in the centre of Abbeville.It was devastated in the war and they are still improving it.These children were having such fun in the water.

Next day we moved on to Honfleur.This is the house our son and family exchanged for their house in Cambridge.It had a huge garden,swings and slide and a heated swimming pool.It was a cheap holiday for them as they also used Tesco vouchers for Eurotunnel.

While we were there they went to this climbing experience.Ella,above,was on a trail for 16 yr olds.She is 11.She was held up by 4 young men in their twenties who were scared!Our son was more frightened than his children!

This is Honfleur.It really is unique and we love it.We all had a meal sat by the harbour which I paid cost me a fortune.

This is us and our 3 Cambridge grandchildren in Honfleur.

This me later in the evening when it had got quite cold but the lights were lovely.
Not much to report on the craft front.I did a bit of sock knitting in the car and last night finished the last of August's squares for the Mystery blanket.
Hope you have all had a good Bank Holiday.


  1. Looks like you had a lovely trip... what a
    gorgeous house for a swap! Very impressive.
    I've done one of those high wire scary things ... I hated it and retired injured (with a broken toenail), but the rest of the family were thrilled!
    What a nice photograph of you both with your grandchildren!
    Love Kathy xxx

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

  3. What a lovely family photo! I'm glad to see the two boys look like a couple of cheeky monkeys - just like boys should! Looks like you had a fabulous holiday & the weather looks much better than in was here.
