Abu Dhabi Days

Escaping from the relentless rain here in the south of England, I go over my pictures of the glorious sunshine of Abu Dhabi. I can take my self back there with this view from my bedroom



Join me in soaking up the sunshine,



wandering along the beach …


finding interesting pieces of coral  – is that what this is?

the beach did not at first look promising for beach combing – one of my very favourite pastimes – but when I looked really closely



there were such delicate colours and beautiful fragments to be found ….

and eventually finding a few larger shells, I started to write names

1.nameAnd then I realised if I did a picture of the name of one of my grandchildren, then all eight needed to be done! More shells needed. …..

I got into a lovely routine of wandering slowly along the beach first thing each morning and ……..




mandalas started to take over from knitting designs.. .  . …

Such a grasshopper mind!



What is it about sorting and arranging that is SO pleasing and relaxing ……
