We decided at two o'clock yesterday afternoon to make the two hour drive to the beach. The late afternoon light was gorgeous and we stayed until it started to get dark.
Driving home beneath a stunning sunset and even more stunning orange(harvest?) moon (sorry no photos - it was hidden behind trees by the time we got home). We listened to a bit of this....
and as the sky was clear for the first time in weeks, we finished the weekend by sleeping on the trampoline and star-gazing.
It was surprisingly comfortable and cosy, although rather wet on the outside thanks to a very heavy dew. Going to sleep with the cool air on your face and bats flitting beneath the stars and waking up to warm sun on your skin and birds singing in the buddleia next to us can definitely be recommended. Just in case you wondered I fitted in the middle in the flowery sleeping bag and Daddy, who had to work today, looked after Snap in the house. I can see this becoming a regular summer ritual - one I won't mind repeating at all!
