Escape

Just this time last week we were swimming in the Red Sea in Egypt! Yes, we escaped for a very last minute week of rest and relaxation, booking an amazingly good deal just 2 days before leaving! The Red Sea was just sublime, crystal clear waters with the most amazing coral reef right near the shore. We could walk out up to our middles in the Sea and had beautiful tropical stripey, brightly coloured fish swimming around us, totally surreal! Although it is still winter there it was around 35c each day with a lovely breeze through the palm trees. So I hope I can share some of this escapism and warmth with each of you, my friends, of which I treasure each visit you make here.  







(Look at those long nosed fish!)


Since back I have been busy working on a new Blog design with a wider page, could you let me know if you can see everything ok and if you have any problems?  Just today I finished a new commission Bear so will share lots more photos soon, Hugs, Catherine x

If I could only transport myself into your photos instantly, I think I would find myself dozing lazily under the umbrella, feeling the breeze(?), and soaking up that lovely sunshine.

Thanks for the dream!

Catherine- I am back to look at these gorgeous photos again- I think I have been here 4 times already. The Red sea- I cannot even imagine- that is such a faraway and exotic place to me. Absolutely- these photos are beyond beautiful. What a wonderful time you must have had.

A special hug to you right now-
Vicki
