This summer....Part 1

They last time I blogged we were getting ready to to go on holiday.

We had a week in Maderia at the beginning of April with my Sister-in-Law and Brother-in-Law.

The weather was fantastic - wall to wall sunshine all week - a really lovely break!

 The Tropical Garden in Monte, above Funchal.

Maderia is famous for being able to grow fantastic Birds of Paradise.

At the end of April we had a week's canal boat holiday on the Kennet and Avon canal with the family - 5 adults, one 3 year old and 2 dogs! The weather was mediocre but at least we didn't see much rain!

Deep lock in Bath

69ft boat - the longest that can go through the locks!

It was a busy week but it was lovely to spend time with the family!
