Sea, Seals, Horses plus, our April break

Myself and Keith have just returned from a short break, we visited my sister in Sutton on Sea, and also visited Newmarket, a major horse training venue.

Whilst we were at my sisters we went to the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary. What a fabulous place to visit, not only rescued seals but many other animals including many birds of prey and also the owls that are in the photo above, should you be in the area it is really worth a visit.

The sea was very rough and not a day to sun bathe on the long sandy beach.

Whilst at Newmarket we got up early and saw the horses working on the gallops, the photo above shows one naughty horse that managed to get loose, happy to say he was soon caught and not injured. What a sight, race horses everywhere.

We also did a tour of The National Stud, very interesting, especially because there were plenty of foals to admire.

Now it is back to work, so new creations will be on the website soon.
If you want to see more photos, yes, as usual Keith took a lot of them, the link is below.

War Horse - New London Theatre

Just returned from London after see the stage version of this amazing production.
The puppetry is 1st class, so much so that you only take in what the horses are doing and don't really see the people being so clever that move the horses.
A very thought provoking show, in a very small and friendly theatre.
A wonderful night out.

spring flowers and Phantom

At last some wonderful colours and plants are appearing in the garden, the white daffodil above is glorious.
If you saw the Phantom of the Opera 25th anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall recently on the TV here in the UK, wasn't it great.
I had a surprise when Keith brought me the DVD , so now we can watch it without all the adverts.
It is my favourite musical and this production is just magical.
