Some of my favourite places

Kittiwake colony at Seaford, East Sussex. Photo taken in 2009. When I walked along the prom, I didn't know this was at the end, so when this view came into sight, I was gobsmacked :o) It was so unexpected & beautiful, it made my day. It's one of my favourite memories, a wonderful few days away from home, spent with good friends. Oh, & 'imself, too, of course :o)

Birling Gap, again in East Sussex. This place is just beautiful, even with the coastguard cottages falling off the cliff :o) We stayed at the Birling Gap Hotel for our  20th wedding anniversay & it was just so peaceful falling asleep to the sound of the waves lapping on the shore. For me, it's heaven -  sea on one side & countryside on the other.

Russell Gardens, opposite Kearsney Abbey in Dover. These pics were taken in 2009. Autumn is my favourite season of the year :o) I just love the richness of the colours, that nip in the air, the misty mornings & not feeling guilty on a wet Saturday afternoon when you can curl up on the sofa & watch a good film :o) In the better weather, there's always something else to do !! :o)

Even in the rain, the rich beauty of Autumn shines through.
