Photo Diary August #1

10 September 2018

Dear Friend,

I love capturing the ordinary moments and special times with my camera, looking at our life through a lens gives me a clearer focus. Here I take a look back at some of my favourite moments from the summer. 


 Now over to my photo diary... Happy days!




  • Exploring the North Yorkshire Moors
  • Finding the seated man at Castleton
  • Visiting Grosmont (the station in Harry Potter)
  • The boys paddling in the river at Lealholm just like I did as a child
  • A day at Flamingo Land where little man made his own bear and big lad discovered a love of roller coasters 
  • The tastiest fish & chips at Helmsley 
  • Helmsley Castle at sunset
  • Family fun at Stewart’s park





As an Expat I really miss the hills and rolling countryside of England. Holland is very flat. But little man reminded me that England has hills but Holland has water. Wise words indeed!

When we arrived back in Holland we hired a boat and spent the day investigating the canals. The boys enjoyed being dragged behind in their little boat. It was a gorgeous day and I loved seeing big lad so relaxed. Looking at the beautiful Leiden from a different perspective was also really special!
