Dandelions, Porthtowan and Hot Chocolate with Ammar

11 Jun

1  I love the vibrant beauty of dandelions!

These were growing at the side of the beach in Porthtowan.

2   We determined to go to the beach at Porthtowan whatever the weather today and, although a bit chilly, we had lots of fun. Jake in his little wet-suit, played in the very cold water!

3   We followed these adventures with beautiful hot chocolates at The Blue Bar Porthtowan where we met Claire and Ammar which was rather special.

PS The lovely Anni of has very kindly nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger award about which I am delighted and which I will sort out when the family have gone home. Thank you very much, Anni!

    I always like it when I find pictures of dandelions. I think they are beautiful little flowers. Maybe the reason why they grow so abundantly is because they are cheery, sunny flowers, and we all need cheer and sunshine in our lives.

    This is part of the message I received from Ammar this morning 20/6/2012

    “I appreciate the blog you’ve written.. you have no idea how I felt when I read it.. it I NEEDED that.. just to feel that i was an element of someone’s happiness.. even if this element is as small as an atom ..

    I am over the clouds by your blog … ”

    Thank you so much Ammar 🙂

      I’d only met Ammar the day before with another friend and he fitted in straightaway and was so lovely with Jake, who as you can see from his expression, really took to him. 🙂

      Thank you so much! Yes, we are having lovely times with the Grandchildren. Sadly, they leave tonight – but they’ll be back in a month! Hope you are well and happy 🙂

      I’d love to have them in the garden but that’s not on the cards! I can enjoy them in the field behind! Thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
