Leaving home from the Cumbrian Lakes we travelled south for a few days to Surrey to see Cathy and her boys.

Her youngest is growing fast, so it was time to catch up with them all.

A short walk brought us out into the woods on the military training grounds around Camberley and Sandhurst.

Chance to exercise the four dogs (and ourselves).

It wasn't that long ago that we drove down to see him just after he was born.

Now baby grows are being replaced by trousers and shirt.

The older boys are keen rugby players and at the end of the season the boys

and parents had a get together to present awards and meet socially for a barbecue.

Matthew - most improved player of the season - under 9's.

steps up to receive his awards.

Alexander was just happy to relax in the sun,

shaded by his Granddad's Ozzie hat.

Off to Swansea next and a walk on Rhossilli Beach with our son Gareth.

He is the taller one in the shades !

Behind is the wide expanse of the bay with Burry Holms at the far end.

Turning round, the beach continues away into the distance

with the elongated island, Worms Head, pointing west out to sea.

The whole beach is some 3 miles long and famed for its sand and good surfing.

Sunshine as we make our way back through the dunes.

Time for lunch !
