We finally had the bonfire!! It had been building up for months!

Miss V had never seen one before...altho a bit smoky...she loved it!!

End of the day...

Sun going down...everyone went home...our view from inside!!


The guys got the porch shutters up...water is still on...clock is ticking!!

  2. Gorgeous colour, the weather so far for November has been amazing, hope it stays like this for quite awhile. Perfect bonfire for Guy Fawkes Day, or Bonfire Night as celebrated in England.

  10. Oh, good. Glad that you're into cozy shoes instead of flip flops. What wonderful photos of your lovely day. And Miss V is looking so grown up with her new haircut. Nice to be home tonight, I've had to accompany this BF to a lot of busy events lately. And we too are waiting anxiously for the election results, especially since my family's in the U.S.!

  11. Having family together is one of life's most beautiful joys. I can see it in these pictures and little Miss V is the center of all of that love.

    I love pics of your cottage, the wind and rocks. Your bonfire was glorious! After years of us shifting our seats around, hubby built a small chimney-like structure for our fires. On the patio closer to the house we have a chiminea. We had the wind problem as well a few weeks ago.

    Let's catch up soon!

    1. We can only have a fire if it is a North wind...we also have a small portable firepit...but the rules apply to that one too!!!
      It was a great dy indeed...love when the kids are there๐Ÿ’“
      I am always here Jane! Congrats on the expected grandchildren!

  12. Must be global warming: above average November temps here too - tomorrow predicted 36C!! It does slow one down. Your golden trees are so gorgeous, and a bonfire great fun for all. I remember loving a bonfire as a child. Miss V looks very grown up with her chic cut, but definitely still a cutie-pie :)

  16. Wow! Just wow! Amazing colors! Reading about your children visiting made me long for mine. My oldest works a crazy schedule at the hospital, so her time with her family is precious and my Colorado girl....well, I wish I could just transport her home for good. Won't see her until Christmas. Treasure those family memories that you're making, Linda.
