Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things handmade. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as CosyKitty on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Sunny days

What a difference a week makes! This time last week I was strolling along the esplanade in beautiful Weymouth, ice-cream in hand. Sun shining, happy smiling faces all taking in the last remnants of Summer warmth.

In stark contrast today is dull, wet and decidedly dreary in my little corner of Bedfordshire. How fortunate we were to be blessed with blue skies and sunshine throughout our jaunt to the stunning Dorset coast.  From start to finish we couldn't have asked for more.

We walked for miles along the coastal paths, passing the most fabulous sea front properties. I couldn't resist taking a snap of the stunning double bay-fronted houses. A girl can dream......

All that sea air really worked up an appetite, we were proper 'hank marvin'. Copious amounts of fish and chips were consumed throughout our stay, from the Old Harbour, Fish 'n' Fritz, and Bennetts on the harbour-side. All scrummy.

With children at school, the seafront was fairly quiet. Lots of coach parties of retirees were making the most of the peace and quiet. It was lovely to see the beach front vendors so busy, especially so late into the season. I imagine they were grateful for the extra trade the unseasonably mild weather had brought in. 

The low light every evening was sublime, bathing the quay in a golden hue. Our holiday home was afforded the most spectacular sunsets every evening too. We were truly spoilt. 

Back home, rested and ready for the Autumn now. Lots of cosy nights with my crochet are ahead. The Bake-Off final is tomorrow. Come on Nadiya....!!! x x x

  2. What a difference a week makes! It looks as though you had the last summer rays in Weymouth. I had to rush my dog walk this evening as I forgot how quickly the nights draw in now! Have a great week x

  3. Great pics - beautiful scenery and wildlife and just enough fish'n'chips added in to the mix. What a lovely vacation!

  4. How do you manage to put so many beautiful colours together? I love the ripple pattern (still trying to figure pattern out). Have family in Southsea and on the Isle of Wight, but I have never been able to capture scenes as beautiful as you have. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Yey, Nadiya to win bake off! Rooting for her too :) Lovely pics of your holiday - we felt really lucky to have great whether on ours too - just down the coast in Lyme Regis - beautiful area isn't it? Look forward to seeing your next crochet project :)

  10. Wow what a beautiful photo's! I love the beach and the sea too! In the summer of 2014 we where in Normandie and Bretagne and i will go back some days. This summer we where in France Alps and our neighbours on the campsite came from Hayling Islands the live nearly on the beach (very nice people).
