WEEKEND REFLECTION - View while having lunch at The Sloop, I.O.W.

I had decided to have lunch at The Sloop and these were the scenes I was looking out on to.  How beautiful is that for a view at lunchtime in January! 










I hope you enjoyed seeing the sun, blue water and sky giving these beautiful reflections in the water.

I am linking this post with WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.

Many thanks for your visiting and also to those who leave comments.

  11. Beautiful reflections, Margaret. Just this minute, Rina saw a reflection of Shadow in the window behind me. We're in the entertainment lounge) Shadow is sitting in MY bedroom window which is at right angles to this room. I hope my photos look as good as the real deal. Thanks for the advice re regular invites of meals etc. We had a house-warming for MIL today and told her we're not having dinner this weekend. So we'll see her some time next week. She was quite happy! I also thought about when Eryn will be exactly double Bethany's age again. I'll get Bethany (the younger, but SO bright, to work it out) My mum was 26 when I was born; when I was 26, I had my second son, Angus. My mum was then 52. When Angus was 26, I was, you guessed it... (LOL) Hope you have a great weekend. Jo xx
