Feed the Ducks


What do you do with your leftover bread? Freeze it? Make into breadcrumbs, croutons or even a bread pudding? Today, I had a better idea.

I took a stroll down to the local park and spent some time feeding the ducks. It was very relaxing...for the ducks too..

Cliff Top Walk

It was such a lovely day yesterday, I took a stroll along the cliff tops. The air was still. The sky and the sea were so blue. Miles of rocks and green...then in the middle of it.. a splash of colour. It made me smile.

When the Boat Comes In

Last weekend, the town was visited by on of the many cruise ships that visit every year. This one was one of the biggest, carrying over 2,500 passengers. I took a walk down to the port to see it arriving.

It pulled into port on a grey and drizzly morning

The town crier was there to greet the passengers

and a Celtic band provided the music entertainment

As the weather brightened up, I took a walk by the Maritime Museum

and looked at the historical artefacts outside

Then, down over the rocks

and onto the beach

I stood watching the waves gently lapping the shore

and thought how pretty everything is

The Flowers That Bloom in the Spring....Tra-la

I cant believe that its May, and some places in the UK are having snow. All week Wales has been having bad weather, rain, strong winds and very cold. But, not this part of Wales. Im sure Anglesey has its own climate. The last couple of days, the weather has been gorgeous, so sunny and warm. 

The flowers are in bloom. Blossoms are on the trees. And I have seen my first bumble bee and my first butterfly of the year. Its so good to know Summer is on its way.

What a Good Idea - Cake Pops Colander



Cake Pops are becoming very popular. I have tried making them myself...but always got a flat side from laying them down to dry. Then I saw this idea... just use a colander

What a Good Idea - Serving Cake and Ice cream


To prevent a sticky situation, start scooping before the party starts. Place individual scoops in a cupcake tin lined with paper baking cups and transfer the tray to the freezer for up to several hours. After the cake is cut, remove the scoops from the paper baking cups (or not) and drop them onto the waiting plates

Night at the Marina

I couldn't settle last night for some reason, so I took a walk down by the Marina, just as the sun was setting. It was so calm and peaceful. It did me the world of good. I slept like a baby

Harbour Walk

Id like to say welcome to my new followers. You are in good company. I really have got the most wonderful Fabulous Friends. I'm loving getting to know you all and reading your lovely blogs

The sunny weather is continuing. My daughter is so lucky. She lives a ten minute walk from the sea front. The harbour is a lovely place to spend some time and blow the cobwebs away. This has become my favourite place to take a morning stroll
