Freedom, Fresh air and a slice of Hucklebones: Best of British Summertime

British summer time

Summer 2011 was officially the coolest summer since 1993 but despite the cool climate our little family had the BEST Summer yet. I hope you did too…

Much assisting this happy summer was the quest for fish and crabs in rock pools, cream teas, sand castles and paddling in the sea down in beautiful St Agnes in Cornwall. Freedom and fresh air are all children need on holiday . It’s amazing the simplicity of happiness we have when away from all our ‘stuff’.

Agnes & Monty spent most of their time in wetsuits with a fishing net, eyes down for whatever treasures they could find in the rock pools – the biggest find being a beautiful starfish. Wow! They went to bed with sand in their hair and woke up to the cockerel crowing, they were barefoot whenever possible. No schedule, no pressure, just fun and exploringto do.

Back to school is looming. Time for shoes and socks and school uniform and before long we’ll be in warm winter coats, knits and tights. Autumn is always an exciting time of year, I love the changing of this season the most but these summer images are happy reminder of good times, bare feet and that sunny yellow dress. It was our wardrobe staple for the summer… now which Hucklebones pieces are going to take us through winter? They are all stunning, just you wait and see!!

Goodbye summer…see you again soon.
