I could never be a travel blogger .. my posting skills are appalling. We have been back home for 6 weeks and I still haven’t got you to the UK … here goes
With only a handful of days of our holiday remaining, we left France via planes, trains and automobiles to get us to our final destination, Broadstairs in Kent.
Hubby’s sister Joe and her family live in Broadstairs a quaint seaside town on the south-east coast. Bill (hubby’s Dad) had driven the arduous journey from Watford (I won’t mention his driving), to spend the last few days with us.

A house bursting with people and days planned with shopping events, BBQs, walks on the beach with the dogs, family dinners, and chicky things like ‘facials’, Broadstairs kept us busy .. it always does 🙂

Do you have a wonderful sister-in-law? I can honestly boast that I do. She is about the only person that is happy to go clothes shopping with me, can colour my hair without staining my clothes and can happily cook for a horde of people without getting stressed or flustered – I’m the exact opposite! She is also mother to four boys, John, Elliott, Charlie and Ziggy – which she deserves a medal for.
You will know if you follow Frog Pond Farm, that I loathe taking pics of people. With this in mind, I did take some shots at a special Saturday afternoon BBQ. There was food to feed a battalion, matched with some lovely wines, good friends and family. What more could you want … some sunshine LOL.
Great friends – Joe and Ross

Broadstairs has loads of charm and history. The famous Charles Dickens also enjoyed Broadstairs spending his summer holidays there residing at the Bleak House (and no I didn’t get any pics sorry).
Even on a cloudy day, Broadstairs is a photographer’s delight. And I love clouds.
We had the best holiday .. thanks so much to everyone that made it such a special one!
It’s time to head back to NZ, it’s springtime!
