A weekend away

Over the weekend I was spoiled rotten by two friends Greg and Alex at their fab barn conversion home in the countryside outside Bath.

The barn conversion. Now hand up who wants one of these!!!

I haven’t seen them for over 10 years but none of us had changed much so we just hooked up from where we left off!

We ate gorgeous meals prepared by Alex and spent time walking the dogs Sophie and Charlie at a local nature preserve where there were some serious insect spotters about!

On top of th eMedips there is a marshy area that floods to provide many small ponds that are home to wildlife

I have to admit I spent way to much time sleeping (the train and motion had upset my balance in the middle ear plus it was really humid on Saturday) and totally unwound.

Some photos show the isolated beauty of their place.

Feeling refreshed and having caught up on each others’ lives I headed home on Sunday morning having had a lovely time and now looking forward to seeing my dog Tilly again.

Watch this space for a possible watercolour sketch or two of the nature reserve I mentioned:)
