It is a most miserable day here in Scotland with continuous rain, high winds, and flood warnings as Storm Desmond reaches its peak - the fourth already this winter. So the thought of summer, sun and sandy beaches is rather appealing and took me back to happy holiday memories - but no sign of Robinson Crusoe!
Daughter (in the middle) enjoying a donkey ride on Blackpool beach.
A surprisingly empty Blackpool beach with the Central Pier
and the famous Tower in the background.
Mum and I
with Marsden Rock in the background
looking over to the Farne Islands.
Sandyhills Beach near Rockcliffe, Kirkcudbrightshire (pronounced Kir-cu-bri-shire)
on the Solway Firth in south west Scotland.
Across to the east coast of Scotland and Canty Bay, East Lhian south of Edinburgh
with the Bass Rock in the background.
On the Isle of Iona looking across to the Isle of Mull off the west coast of Scotland - one of my most favourite places.
And finally a happy picture of my brother
looking very natty in his knitted bathing suit and sunhat.
