On my walk today

Hi dear friends,

Hope all is well with you and your week is off to a great start.

These sweet little baby ducklings and their Mama, were standing outside the dairy when I passed by. Often when we have been out driving we have had to stop the car and let them pass safely across the road. There are many signs around the Island telling people to take care and watch out for the little ducklings.

DD made this outfit to wear to an event recently - she looked lovely
 We went out to lunch at 'Soul' in the viaduct and had a table out on the deck. This is a great place to look out over the boats and watch people walking around enjoying the spring day

and lastly the flowers blooming in the hanging baskets, always put on a pretty show.

'Savour the moments that make you the happiest '

Enjoy the rest of the week and many thanks for the kind visits to my blog and I look forward to coming to visit you soon.
