Last Thursday we decided to get fish and chips for our supper and eat them at the Breakwater. I took the bridge camera as it takes great night time hand held images.

The fish market and trawlers (slightly blurred image as it's a long way away)
Slightly earlier in the evening some of the fancy boats in the marina
The curve of the Breakwater keeping the waters calm
The other side of the Breakwater with choppy waters looking across the bay to Torquay
A crane was busy at work well into the evening as the sun set
The stony beach of the Breakwater where we ate our supper from the car
Earlier in the afternoon we went to Berry Head to walk Harry and I spotted these two small boats coming in with their catch after passing around Berry Head, so they were quite close.

Harry Before and After Pictures. What a difference three months make!
I know you've seen some fairly good photos of Harry in previous posts, but this is Harry now weighing 13.4kg and the top right image is the day we got him. It's hard to believe he looked so skinny and wretched.
This is the top part of the garden, looking pretty awful when we moved in (and a bit of a dumping ground) as I struggled to find space to put everything. Hedges needed cutting back and items needed re-homing.
The ivy and hedge had been untouched for years. I got someone in to help cut it all back now that the nesting season is over. The ivy was so thick and high it was like cutting a loaf of bread as huge square chunks were cut out bit by bit. The hedge leaned out so far it touched the rustic archway, so about five feet was cut back. It looks bare at the moment and the ground needs a tidy up.....but it's a start!
We now have views across to the fields from the top of the garden and I can even see the steam trains (although I just missed one going past, the steam is still visible). The sea view is from the top part of the garden too, so I'll have to think about how to make the most of it in my new designs.
We had a search in the loft boxes and found some of our favourite pictures, so spent some time over the weekend putting them up. The place feels much more homely.
So I'll be spending spare time in my week ahead, thinking about that top part of the garden and looking in my garden books for inspiration.
Wishing you an inspirational week ahead
Until next time
