Yesterday my husband took a days leave from work and we headed off to the seaside for lunch and some sea air!!

Now looking at the photos above and below with the bright blue sky, the palm trees, the mustard and terracotta buildings and the clear light one could be fooled into thinking they were in the south of France but believe me the wind that was blowing in across the sea was turning my hands blue as I held the camera!! It certainly didn’t feel like the Riviera!!

However despite the cold wind it was a beautiful clear and bright day!

The little town we went to is Bangor in County Down on the shores of Belfast Lough.

It has a lovely little marina and believe me on a warm day it is lovely to wander around it, yesterday however it was a little chilly.

It was nice though to take in the sea air and watch the tide coming in and there were some lovely skies.

As you can see from the clock these photos were taken at ten minutes to five and look at the sky, there is definitely a stretch in the evenings, brilliant. πŸ™‚

This view was taken out across Bangor Bay towards Belfast Lough where the Titanic would have made her very first voyage, she would have sailed past here after she left Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast!

It was lovely to take a day out have some lunch and enjoy the sea air, definitely good for the soul!!

And did this little seaside town have a yarn shop?? Of course it did!!
And did I purchase some yarn?? Of course I did!!

Teal and mustard are the colours of the week for me, looking forward to making something with them!

Happy Tuesday everyone and have a great week! πŸ™‚
