  1. Beautiful photos, so wonderful to see you passing through the canal, thank you so much closer for sharing. Your photos of the islands are making me dream of warmer months here in the UK. Keep up your reading and studies Bluebell, Columbus and Williw just keep being super cute xxx

  2. Hi, just catching up with all your adventures, the pictures are great, it certainly makes me wish I was there ……… especially in cold dark February in the UK. It seems like all of Surrey has gone down with colds and flu, so a bout in the sun would be most welcome!

    Lovely to see you all looking so well, Debbie
