End of the summer holidays

It's back to school tomorrow, so today is the end of the summer holidays. The wet and windy weather seems kind of appropriate some how. So, what did we do this summer?

We've done lots of day trips to the beach (Thanet, Brighton - Eastbourne, as well as in Scotland), spent a few days in the Highlands, stayed in our summerhouse (aka a Hut in a field in Scotland), went to museums in London (recommend the Wallace Collection), the allotment, played in the garden. And we've been exploring Lidos - in particular tidal/sea water lidos. Been to the library and completed the excellent summer 'Circus' reading challenge organised by Bromley Libraries. It's been a good summer overall, if a bit damp at times.

Here's some more pictures...

A (not-so-)new song I've discovered that seemed appropriate The Kooks 'Seaside'

And here's one last picture - my daughter was fascinated by the statues on the South Bank in London where we went on her last day off school (especially the ones that did their 'thing' on receipt of a few pennies).

Now, lets get those walking boots out for some fungal forays, woodland walks and autumn fun!
