Beautiful Barafundle Bay, Pembrokeshire, one of Britain's best beaches

Barafundle Bay, which is under the care of the National Trust and listed as part of the Stackpole Estate, has one of the most beautiful beaches in Britain. It is my favourite beach in Wales. The golden sands and dunes can be accessed by the Pembrokeshire Coastal path and it is not easily reached. It is unspoilt and right away from the madding crowd, car parks, caravans, holiday homes, buildings, roads and shops.

I love to visit Barafundle out of the school holiday season and on bright sunny evenings in June when there are very few people on the beach and along the coastal path. On such June evenings it is wonderfully peaceful. My photographs were taken this June on a beautiful sunny evening when my family were, by the time we left the beach, the only people in the area. Magnificent!

I hope you like the photographs in my gallery, so scroll well down below in this blog.

The best soup I have tasted from a can

Have you tried the soup in the Baxters luxury range? Well, the Lobster Bisque with the new improved recipe is delicious! I thoroughly recommend it. I cannot think of a better soup that I have tasted from a can. And the Cream of Asparagus, also with the new improved recipe, is full of flavour and well worth trying. But do try the Lobster Bisque and tell me what you think. It comes with brandy and fresh double cream. Go on, get some from your supermarket. I bought mine from Sainsbury's for £1.42. Well worth it too! Do you agree?

Good to be back blogging again

In July my PC died and I was sad to lose so much on my hard drive, though attempts to retrieve files and photographs continue with some expert help. At the end of July and in August I was in Ontario, Canada. I saw the Niagara Falls again and visited the lovely town of Niagara on the Lake.

I have added some more photographs on this blog in my gallery below. I hope that you enjoy them.
There will be some new photographs of Canada.

I now have a new computer and will back up my photographs etc. so that they are securely saved and kept for the future. It is good to be able to blog again, and I hope to share my thoughts, my joys, my theological reflections and continue to celebrate the beauty of England, Finland, Sweden and Wales.
