My wonderful in-laws said that I have their permission to show their photos on here. So, say hello to Joan and Peter! You can also see Betty, their good friend and neighbor who always places the American flag over the door to greet us upon our arrival. (She is hopping out of her snazzy red car and Richard took this photo of her on the move!) She is also the one who places the Union Jacks in the milk bottle! Thank you, Betty!
There are so many photos that we made at the Hydro Hotel that I need to do a separate post on that alone, but I couldn't resist the photo of the chocolate eclair that our son enjoyed and the big grin of anticipation to go with it! Joan and Peter celebrated their anniversary while we were there, and I took a good photo of them cutting the cake. (It's hard to take a bad photo of them!
Our handsome son is posing with his grandparents in one of the photos with the lovely ceanothus in the background. The intense blue is just incredible. Do you see how Joan & Peter match the blue in their clothing? They should be models! Speaking of blue, the bluebell walk was amazing, we usually just miss them blooming, but we finally got to see them. (I have written a post "England At Her Best" if you would like to go back and see more bluebell photos!)
All of these photos are from Eastbourne in England. (Joan and Peter, I hope you can see from these photos how very good looking you are! Thanks for calling today, lovely to speak with you both.) And for your enjoyment, Yo Yo Ma playing Bach. Hope you enjoy this, Peter! And for anyone else who wants to listen! (A man comes on at the end of it talking about something, but since the music has finished, I ignore him.) Hope everyone has a lovely week ahead!
