Spending some time with family

Good afternoon
I thought that I would share the wonderful day I had yesterday.  My daughter Ashley and granddaughter Rose had come down to Dorset to spend some time with my Mum and Dad.  And as I am down in Cornwall I dont get to see them very much, so it was decided to take the opportunity to meet up.
Half way between Dorset and Cornwall is Oakhampton, and after a little research we decided to meet at a little place called 'Finches Foundry', wow what an amazing place.  The weather stayed lovely, no rain showers of the day before, and therefore beautiful, my Mum came too and provided a lovely picnic, and after much lifting and pulling of the pushchair (Ashley wished that she had bought the baby sling so that we could have walked further).

 This my beautiful Granddaughter, eating lunch, though she did prefer the Muller Lite yogurt that her Mum was eating!!
 A lovely picture of my Daughter Ashley, taken yesterday.
 My Mum doesn't like having her photo taken, but I am so lucky to have her as a Mum, full of different ideas and thoughts and it was her that chose this beautiful place.  Which made it a lovely day, though making up a picnic on a bridge used by lots of walkers and their dogs, was probably not her smartest thought!!  Try telling a Labrador that they cant eat the cheese and pickle roll that she was making was interesting!!

 Two more pictures of the beautiful Rose, though I am biased of course.
 I couldn't resist this Poppy that I aim to attempt to paint as a watercolour for my sister Colette (Poppy Cottage 18).
This was so beautiful and peaceful, it is a Quaker graveyard in the same grounds as the foundry.

So all in all a totally lovely day, and one that will stick in my memory for a long time.
Oh well, all for now
Thank you for stopping by.
take care
