The First Week in Pictures

We didn't exactly travel light.

Some plastic Giraffes provided hours of entertainment.

We had promised her there'd be swings and slides!

And there were.

...and more...

On several occasions!

Can't really fault 17 degree weather in the middle of January. There were people swimming. Emily fancied
joining in and has asked me if she could "jump in the sea" each time she's caught sight of the sea since.

But she's obviously also heard about the snowmen she's missed out
on in England and demanded a play-doh snowman one morning! 

Unrelated but important note: Due to an unrelenting attack of spambots, I have been left with no choice but to turn word verification on for comments. I hate it, probably as much as you will, but the darn bots are doing my head in. So please accept my apologies and do continue commenting! 


  1. Lovely photos... Hope you're settling well xx
