"I Do"

This summer saw a trip to Weymouth to witness the lovely Kees and the Silver Fox tie the knot!

Great photo! [Shame I didn't take it:]
The wedding was very cool and took place in Portland Castle



Andy, Luke and some dapper geezer drinking manly pink champagne


I think I sit here? :)

The rest of the evening consisted of drinking far too much champagne, white wine and beer

***

The next day was spent site seeing


Chisel Beach


What trip to the seaside would be complete without a go on a pedlo?



A trip to Portland Bill was also in order.
A great little place and so scenic on a nice day.

Does anyone remember the old Portland Bill animation series?


Portland Bill lighthouse.


The lighthouse lens


Amazingly, the ever rotating lens floats on 3/4 of a ton of Mercury!!!

It was also veteran's awareness week




I managed to capture this moving shot of a young boy reading the names on a WWI/WWII memorial.

Today's Top Tip: Stained clothes? White wine dabbed onto a red wine stain will clean it up quickly. Similarly, fat splashes
on clothes can be easily removed by rubbing salad onto the affected area!

It is many years since I have been to Weymouth. You and the happy couple were lucky to get some decent weather this year.

How lovely to see photos of Kees at her wedding! They both look spectacular and very pleased with themselves. As well they should.

Please say hello to her from her old blog buddy when next you see her.

And happy birthday to you!

Weymouth is great (not so far from me): my ex partner's parents live nearby, and we had holidays when I was a youf.
Your speling is iffy.
The photo from above Fortuneswell would have my house in it if it wasnt so hazy (only 60 miles)
