Sheffield Park 2015

Yesterday we went down South for our (almost) annual trip to Sheffield Park and Garden. It was crazy! Lots and lots of people came there. The weather was not great, though it did get better by the time we left. However, it was not very windy, which was appreciated. The foliage status was quite varied, as some of the trees already lost almost all leaves and others were just starting to turn their colour. We had a great time, as usual 🙂

A weekend in Exmoor (2014)

We’ve just come back from a long weekend in Exmoor, one of our favourite places. This time I also spent a few hours exploring Bristol. It looks totally different from what I thought, very hilly and quite mixed in terms of architecture. I did like it but I was not very much taken with it. As usual, we stayed in… Read more →


Recently we gave Harwich another try…It is actually much better than we first thought, though quite small. We did take some nice photos of the various boats that were anchored there during a street fest. Read more →
