Sunday 31st July 

A walk around the Blue Pool
Then the Cake House after that
Cheesecake and iced coffee
Whoops! I'll be getting fat!

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

The Blue Pool, Wareham, Dorset
A warm and humid walk around the lake
We stopped for coffee and cake
Looking through the trees
Gary pushed his mum all the way around
A 1km loop, across bumpy terrain
A peaceful vista
Then onto the Cake House, at East Creech Farm
Where I had to try the Baileys Cheesecake 😘

Smooth out that frown

Saturday 30th July 

Having dinner
By the river

Warm sunset skies
Eating French fries

Smooth red merlot
A balmy glow

At the day's end
Can recommend

Time to slow down
Smooth out that frown

Love you both so much
Beloved sons
Sunset glow
Evening libations
Peaceful and calm
A busy Wareham Quay
Jolly boating weather
So many ducks!
Still so warm
Let’s have another!

Poole Park

Friday 29th July 

An afternoon wandering
Around Poole Park in the sun
Quite a busy boating lake
With fun for everyone

Love you both so much
Precious sons
A sunny afternoon
Pretty plants and grasses
Looking towards the lake
Perfect blue skies
The view with ice creams
Memorial Garden
Gorgeous colours
Geese grazing on the grass
Well tended gardens
Boating Lake
Colourful canoes
Sailing dinghies


Thursday 28th July 

Driving up to Dorset
For a few days away
Sometimes it's quite good
Having somewhere else to stay

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
Leaving Cornwall
Parched fields across Dorset

Just trying

Wednesday 27th July 

Just trying
To keep smiling

Shake off stress
Worry less

Having patience
Don't be complacent

Work through pain
Feel whole again

Love you both so much
Beloved sons


Tuesday 26th July

Life can be complicated
But I will try to be content
So that when I do look back
I can see a life well spent

Love you both so much
Treasured sons

The heart

Monday 25th July 

The heart
Never forgets
The mind
Has no regrets
And time
Pays its debts

Passing clouds
Have silhouettes
Even though
Dark as it gets
Our love finds
Many outlets

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Cloudy and grey over the town this morning
Drizzle is on its way!

I do think it’s okay

Saturday 23rd July 

I do think it's okay
Looking back at the past
I won't stay there that long
Don't want sadness to last
But I do understand
Won't let shadows overcast
Those precious memories
Of a love, so vast

Love you both so much
Treasured sons
Cloudy and grey
Calm seas
A quieter day in town
Grey clouds over Hayle
Those beady eyes on the lookout for human food
An almost empty beach
Decent surfing waves
Man’s Head

It’s time to stop

Friday 22nd July 

It's time to stop
And recognise
All that's here
With open eyes
The salty air
Cloudless blue skies
Breeze through the trees
Every sunrise
Hope-filled balance
And that's the prize

Love you both so much
Precious sons
Calm in the harbour this morning
Windows and rooftops along the Wharf
West Porthmeor
Surf School preparing lessons
A little cloudy this afternoon
A great stop to people watch
Outgoing tide in the harbour
The sun’s coming out
