We are having some amazingly hot weather currently here in the UK. Too hot sometimes! With possible thunderstorms forecasted today though, it’s going to feel a little more refreshing for my upcoming holiday to Scotland. Whoo hoo !
Meanwhile I have been enjoying my days off with mostly early morning walks and meet ups with friends and family. After seeing a lovely Wildflower Meadow at Stonyhurst College on Facebook , I met my sister, niece and nephew for a walk nearby. After viewing the flowers and seeing lots of butterflies we headed for the river. Lots of splashing was done! Our walk included a little of The Tolkien Trail . The Lord Of The Rings author often stayed at Stonyhurst and the surrounding countryside inspired his writing.
A hot day is always better at the beach! Last Thursday St Anne’s summoned us and a happy few hours were spent lying on blankets on the sand and paddling in the sea. A wonderful cooling breeze was very welcome. I am really excited to be heading up to North Ayrshire in Scotland soon and spending lots more time on the coast. 🤗
Thanks to everyone who wished me a Happy 10 Years Blogversary recently! As promised the winner of my little giveaway is revealed. Judy from http://walmermeadows.co.uk it’s you. 😊 I will be in touch ! Judy blogs about her beautiful woodland in Kent and the wildlife that visits is nothing short of amazing. All thanks to Judy and her husband’s conservation and woodland management skills. Pop by for a read.
I may be a little quiet on the blogging front in the next two weeks as I intend to enjoy that sea air in Scotland before a lovely long weekend break at the van. X

Perfect time to play Mungo Jerry’s “In The Summertime,” too!
It certainly sounds like you’ve been making the most of the recent hot sunny weather. I’m looking forward to reading about your holiday in Scotland, l hope you have a great time 🙂
Thanks Eunice. X
The beach is exactly the place to be when it gets hot, and those beach huts are lovely. I’ve been sweltering here in Wiltshire, this weather has been a bit much for me. Enjoy your time away, I’m sure it will be cooler and fresher in Scotland.
The temperatures will be much more bearable, especially for our black doggy. I bet yours hasn’t enjoyed to he heat!
Have a great holiday up there Shaz
Have a lovely time in Scotland – hopefully no more 40 degrees heateaves 🤞

We’ve enjoyed some beautiful weather this summer. The wildflower meadow is beautiful. Xx

Awh! Missed you again! We should synchronise diaries next time you hit LStA. Hope you W & H have a fab holi-time. x
Thanks Bea. It was a bit of an impromptu decision with friends. The weather was so hot we just knew we had to hotfoot it to the beach!
I love your wildflower photos!
We were in the Lakes during the start of that really hot spell last week, staying in Newlands valley. Plenty of looking for places to swim, dip and cool off!! So your photos here bring all that back again. I did a couple of walks (one in the real hot stuff) but I’m a bit behind so they’ll be coming soon
I will be looking out for them. What a wonderful time to be in the lakes. 🙂
I visited Lytham beach for the first time recently and it is a wonderful place, I really want to go back, I bet it was perfect on a hot summer day. The wildflower meadows look beautiful, wow. I hope you have a lovely holiday in Scotland.
Thank you very much. Lytham is a fab little town to visit, St Anne’s too. X
Have a fabulous break and I look forward to hearing all about it. That wildflower meadow is utterly stunning.
Congratulations on your blogging anniversary! I didn’t know about the wildflower meadow at Stonyhurst but will now make a note to visit next year.
Hi, it was new to me too! A fab find for a sunny Summers day. 🙂 X
