Welcome to Friday’s Fave 5!
I’m joining with Suzanne at Living to Tell the Story, as we count our blessings and favourite moments of the week.
It’s been a week of summer celebrations ~ wonderful times with family and friends, a wedding party, a new baby, and of course beach time!
Here are a few of the highlights:
1.Basin Head Beach ~ a perfect day with good friends. Basin Head is a little jewel of a beach on the Eastern tip of the Island.
We had to battle road construction to get there, but oh! it’s so worth it.
You can see the Magdalene ferry in the bottom right.
2. Babies! Little surfer boy in the picture above became a big brother the very next day!
Welcome to the world little Caspian ~ a new grandboy for Rinda and Bill. Here he is at 4 days old – isn’t he a little doll? Congratulations to Sarah, Nathan, Xan and the whole family!
Here’s another baby – the kitten variety 🙂
Mela in a basket. She’s keeping us entertained with her antics!
3. Bride & Groom (in keeping with the B theme 🙂 ~ Abbie and Andy arrived for an Island wedding party and just in time to meet their new nephew!
Family, friends and food – a good time!
4. Blossoms ~ my lilies are in full bloom.
And so are the wild roses ~ such a sweet perfume!
5. Berries ~ Another big bowl of strawberries is waiting for me. The freezer jam I made yesterday turned out lovely. Today I’ll crush the berries with sugar and freeze them for ice cream, yogurt and shortcake.
Strawberry season is just about over but I hear rumours that the raspberries and blackberries are ready for picking.
I’m already past 5 favourites but I can’t forget Books! I’m enjoying some summer reading – authors Rosamund Pilcher, Eva Ibbotson and this lovely cookbook, Simple Pleasures from our Maritime Kitchens.
Perfect summer reading!
Hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you live.
