Bring me sunshine.....

Why can't the weather make up it's mind and stay settled at least for a few days! After yesterday's sun, today is very windy. In fact gale force winds and rain have been predicted and I've already been chasing my recycling bin around the yard in lashing rain!! I'm sure you get the picture....what would I like to be doing...how about this!!

These pictures were taken when I was in San Francisco last year~ well Stinson Beach actually! While we were walking on this beach a guy stopped and offered to to take a photo of us. We got chatting and it turned out he was English and a writer but I'll save that for another post!

Tell me about it Chris. It was blustery and snowing an hour ago and now the sun is out but with incredible winds. Gotta love the British Isles! ;-)

here is my email to you....my computer is sooo slow that when i had to type in the security letter thingy i could not see the letters so it would not let me send you the message...perhaps you will have better luck emailing me-

Thankyou for offering to help..i am slowly working it all out and hopefully my other blog will get under way over the weekend as i have a friend (young person) coming over to sort out my computer and why it will NOT accept the Wacom...sob,sob.

To rub salt into the wound the Wacom WILL work on Alan's,(my partner) computer and he does not even have the internet.....I do need to get it sorted quickly though as i think,anyday now, Alan will discover he can use it on his photos and then i will NEVER get it back...

I will stop rabbiting on and once more say thankyou
Kind regards,
Eve xox
P.S.-please excuse my spelling and punctuation.OH and i have bravely put my email on my profile...like you... eeeep

They're lovely photos.

The weather's vile on this side of the country too, thankfully it's not bin day for us as we've lost our recycling box and bags sveral times before.

6-10 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. I'd rather just have wind.

Ah good old British weather! It is cold but sunny here which is nice but I'd still rather be on the beach.

What wonderful pictures, Chris! Yes, they DO leave you wanting to return (any beach will do, thank you!).

These are the kinds of shots I like best..simple, yet able to tell a story :).

Gosh, you took me away from the plains and back to my childhood all in one picture. OK, not really, because my mom wouldn't let me go to Stinson because of the dangerous riptides...lol. I think it was the guys in swim trunks, myself, but I believed her then.

This was THE perfect post for today! I am sitting here in our office freezing my butt off. It's ICY! and the winds outside our howling... I could cry.

I don't think you would want to be at stinson today

The weather here changes almost by the hour. Thank you for sharing the pics.

deborah the winds are seriously affecting the north of England and Wales and arctic weather is on its way!

hannah I'm not looking forward to the next few days, having just heard the forecast!

nikki don't envy you however, that's what they are forecasting for parts of the UK in the next few days!

alix and robin beach wins for me every time.

sandy no guys in swim trunks when I was there~ worst luck!!

misty your office doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun today!

sam I take that means you have awful weather!

I would LOVE a sunny beach right now. The rain has returned here. At least snow for a few days was a nice change.

Amen to this post, Chris! I went into Exeter yesterday and thank God I went yesterday, and not today!

It's been dreadful since I woke this morning. Freezing, WINDY, cold, raining sideways at odd times. Did I mention how windy it's been here;)?

Let's hope for some sunshine soon. I don't EVEN care if it's freezing --- and/or snowing - just bring a little sun:).

beautiful photos Chris...but you would not want to be doing that right now...we have wind, rain, and the surf is very high!!! Come back in a couple months..it will be much better!!

Both photos are incredible but that first one is BREATHTAKING.

I did see sand today. But it was on the street, covering the ice.
