I could spend my life by the sea and be a pretty happy lady

Yes, I disappeareed again, sorry about that, but I hope you enjoyed my little festival video in the meantime!

These are some pics we took last Tuesday over on the Isle of Wight.  Every year to remember my dad who passed away in 2009 I take a ferry to the Isle of Wight with my mum and the Bot.  We throw roses into the sea and then have a slap-up lunch somewhere on the island.  It's a lovely way for us to remember him with happy memories, and this year we were blessed with sunshine which meant lots of frolicking on the beaches!

My very yummy mummy

This seafood platter was the nuts.
