Welcome to Talented Tuesday No. 11!
I loved last week’s link up! There were so many great posts and so much talent was displayed! I’ve been back into the swing of blogging this week and have got a couple of things made too. I don’t know about you, but I always have so many ideas buzzing about in my head… I just don’t know where to start. I think we all have an endless craft list!
Before we link up, I just need to remind everyone about one of the rules to the link party that seems to be forgotten frequently, only 3 links per blogger please!
We really love to see what everyone links up, but please respect your fellow bloggers and our rules.

Both sets of parents and my brother came to visit for Christmas. It was busy but nice to see them. Even though we Skype them almost every week, it’s much better to see them in person and give them a good old hug. It was our first time cooking for them all and it actually went pretty well. I only burnt the pigs in blankets! All the men donned Christmas jumpers and Sam had an extra special hat.
I love this photo… no-one is looking!

Saturday meant a day trip with our cooler full of ice and drinks. We had decided to try another beach out, to the south of us, on Dauphin Island. Not to be confused with Dolphin, which I keep saying by accident! Dauphin Island is a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, three miles from Mobile Bay. Again, we are very lucky to have this luxury on our doorstep!
The main road ran from East to West…or West to East, depending on which way you were travelling! The majority of houses were built on stilts to factor in any flooding in stormy weather. The widest part of the island was 1.75 miles wide, so everything could be damaged should the sea come in far enough. Scary thought eh! We drove past Fort Gaines and noted it down for a visit when are parents are across from the UK at Christmas. Cars were lined up waiting to board the ferry across the bay to Orange Beach.
We drove to the farthest point west, parked up and headed to the beach. Once Labor Day passes, we’ve been told that the beaches don’t really get busy. A few families were scattered along the coast, all far enough apart to have a private area. Unfortunately for us, there were hundreds of sandflies flying around and within seconds we were covered. I ran back to the car and proceeded to spend the next 10 minutes picking them out of my hair :-0
