Sunday Snaps #13 - Our Summer

Time flies and I can’t quite believe that it’s been almost 5 months since I last posted on this site. Time has been short and for this, and a bunch of other reasons that I won’t bore you with, this blog has been just a little neglected over the summer. So, in order to get back into the swing of this blogging lark, I figured that it would be a good idea to resurrect my Sunday Snaps thread and share a few pictures that either Dori or I took during the summer. I hope you enjoy them :)

These first two photos were taken in St James’s Park, just across the way from Buckingham Palace in London. They were taken on the beautifully sunny day that followed the Royal Wedding way back in April. It was a lot calmer strolling through the park that day than it had been 24 hours earlier amongst the joyous chaos of the wedding celebrations!

These nest three snaps were, fairly obviously, taken during our trip up to this year’s Wimbledon championships. The day we were there was one of the hottest days of the year, though as the rest of the summer was fairly non-existent, that isn’t saying too much! Anyway, we had a great time and saw some really great matches, as I talked about over on my sports blog at the time.

The last couple of pictures are from our day-trip down to the south coast town of Bournemouth. We had a really great day out, and thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the coast for 3 or 4 years.

Well, that was the summer that was. Halloween is just round the corner, and Christmas is only three months away. I swear that time is speeding up! Anyhoo, I will be trying to blog a little more regularly again from now on, so please drop by when you can and pay a visit. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!! Til next time.

I was also in that area the day after the royal wedding! Nice photos. Bournemouth looks lovely!! If 2011 hadn't been the year of staycations for us, I might even plan on visiting there next year. Maybe I'll plan a weekend, that is allowed, but my big holidays are going to be international!!

Great photos and it is fun to go down memory lane with you. I'm glad that I was there by your side :)

Emm - strange how we didn't see you that day!! :) Yes, Bournemouth is a very lovely place to visit - especially when the weather is good, like today! Thanks for visiting.

Dori - thank you - I happen to know a very talented photographer who took most of them ;) The pictures may be good but the company was even better!

Yes, we had a good summer (if you ignore the weather anyway!). Happy Autumn to you too :)
