Seaside Walk and Crochet

On Saturday, we drove down to Le Pouldu. We felt like getting some sea air and giving Spencer a good run on the beach. The forecast was good and we had some lovely sunshine. We invited our friend Maureen to join us and we all had a wonderful day.

Spencer found a friend on the beach to run around with....a young Weimaraner.

Spencer certainly had a good race around!

We had a fabulous walk and caught the best of the weather. When we headed back, it started to rain and we were glad to get back to Harvey J. Soon we were cosy inside, eating our lunch of French bread, cheese and chutney followed by delicious Pains-aux-Raisins!

On Sunday, we sorted, cut and stacked some old wood.

The weather was wet and we deserved a rest so we spent the afternoon with our feet up watching the film The Graduate.

It might have been wet but you can tell it had turned warmer as Max settled outside for a while.

I did some crochet and almost finished my cowl apart from adding a button and sewing in the ends.

I also crocheted a cover for this coat hanger inspired by Amy's post at Love Made My Home.....I think it gives it a cute vintage look!

It was a quick and easy project to do too....a nice 'in between projects' project! The tutorial I followed was by Lazy Daisy Jones and can be found here.

It's been great to have your company!
