Easter hunting

Easter brings daffodils to York in plenty, and each year we try and remember to take the annual photos. This year a rather naughty bunny got in the photos......

Easter also brings a few welcome days off for hubby, so off we went in search of sun and sea and relaxation........

E thinks the sea must be around here somewhere, we didn't have the heart to tell him the sea is usually down!

we did find cream teas, good old fashioned seaside teas, in hearty big pots, and mugs. no fancy rose patterned tea cups here!

we found wellies, must be getting nearer,

and a mermaid, they're usually at the seaside I think.....

kinder eggs contents distract us from the sea hunt for a while,

until finally we find the sea, hidden under a swathe of sea fret.

there's a lovely little bay just round the corner here, honestly there is

and a magnificent cliff path descending down to the shore

and as for the view of the sea, just startling isn't it.

what you can't see it?

too foggy............

oh and I just thought my eyes had gone funny because I ate too much chocolate......


  1. Chocolate has that effect!
    Looks like you had a lovely restful Easter, and thanks for your Birthday wishes Tess.
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)

  2. Pure brilliance! Sorry you have the sea fog there too it's a real sod at the moment!

  3. Hi Tess
    What lovely pictures! I love the naughty rabbit pic, and love the mermaid sculpture too! Didn't you know that eating too much chocolate makes you blind? It must be a pleasure thing x

  4. Beautiful daffs! No such thing as too much chocolate surely?!

  5. Great photos--even the foggy ones! Is there such a thing as too much chocolate? I know there is such a thing as not enough chocolate--I suffer from that!

  6. Oh, my, I think that little getaway brought out the mischief maker in you, girlie!

    Love the wellie window, love the mermaid...and that bunny looks naughty indeed!!

    Glad you're back safe and sound. And since my word verif is "nessess," I believe it is a sign that chocolate is a necessity...

  7. Definitely been having that effect over here in NZ too.

  8. Lovely pic's! Those daffodils are so beautiful.

  9. You weren't kidding about the daffodils--I've never seen so many in one place! K x

  10. you just sent me straight back to University in my head with those York shots.

    I've forgotten the daffs though. Were they even there in 1988, or has my memory become even more shot than I previously believed?

  11. i forgot about all those daffs - gorgeous,,where did you go on your trip ? You can never have too much chocolate !!
