Handmade Monday 177

Hello and welcome!  It's time for Handmade Monday again.

This week I've had a welcome break - my daughter has a small caravan she keeps on a quiet farm site in Aberdaron (on the north Wales coast) and I've been there for a few wonderfully relaxing days.  The weather was mostly superb and we didn't do much except walk, eat and relax.  The caravan was probably about the size of this one...but with an awning it was plenty big enough for two people and a dog!


This was the morning walk for me and guide dog puppy Quentin


which led down here (you can just make out his rear end and tail here!)


and then here - miles of empty beach to enjoy.  We were the first ones on the beach each morning and it was such an amazing way to start the day.


It was Quentin's first ever visit to a beach and he couldn't believe his luck when he was let off the lead to enjoy himself!  It was such a joy to watch him having fun.


He was wary of the waves at first, jumping away from them as they crashed on the shore


but he soon got used to them and enjoyed a paddle!  He only went for a swim once, when he was playing with another dog, and we think that may have been accidental!


There were lots of opportunities for training as well as playing for Quentin - he got to do a lot of lying down under tables when we were eating out, and even lying on the beach while we had a picnic was good practice for him.  He found himself all the shady spots...


Back home, I'm still putting together images for the art agency, who will then provide me with some advice and direction, which I am sure will be valuable.  The caravan image (above) was one of the images they liked in the sample batch I sent!

Anyway, it's over to you now for Handmade Monday...what's been going on in your world?

I love Aberdaron and camp there with extended family and friends every year at Ty Newyth. I will be going again in a week and a half - hope we have nice weather too as it's often misty and rainy there. The views are spectacular though aren't they! What a lovely experience for Quentin.x

What a lovely time away you've had, and a great experience for Quentin too. I love your caravan image, so I can see why they liked it too.
