NEW YEAR'S DAY.....


What a spectacular display in London last night, to welcome in 2012! A full twenty minutes of brilliance. I do so love fireworks. No, I wasn't there. I photographed the TV...ha, ha, ha! Some great effects captured though.

Today, Mr Snoops and I took Oscar for a walk by the sea. We drove up to Wells-next-the-Sea, about a forty minute drive from home. It was lovely to blow all the cobwebs away! We walked and walked and walked.







After a bowl of soup and a hot chocolate for lunch we drove on around the coast and home. It was  a lovely, peaceful end to the holidays.

London sure knows how to do it. I bet they were practicing to for the Olympics. Fab show.

I love Wells and a fab place for a New Years Day walk! Did you see the seals on the beach?

Shame you didn't pop in to Cromer on the way back for the 5pm fireworks off the pier they are usually amazing and we were sad not to be there this year.

Happy New Year to you all, Sx

What a lovely way to end the holidays. I'd like to live a little closer to the coast so that we could visit more often.

I love that walk.Did you go as far as the beach? If you did and you turn left and walk along the sand past the beach huts,you eventually get to Holkham beach...the best beach in the world...to me anyway! I saw the fireworks on the TV too,but briefly,as OH was watching Jools Holland. :0)

New Years Day is for walking! We have made it a ritual the last several years as well.
You've picked a most beautiful place to start the year.

Dear Ros and Oscar, thank you for a wonderful firework show! You are the only blog I saw fireworks and your phtos are great! Sorry I have missed your last posts. I thought you are on holidays because my reader didn't show your posts - grrr! I'm happy to see that you have had a wonderful Christmas time and your new year's walk looks lovely!
Hugs from Teje & Nero

We sat and watched the fireworks on TV too, and I took photos of it as well!
And we had a beach walk to blow away the cobwebs after New Year!
Hope it's a good one for you.

Great photos-and all from the cmfort of your own home. I love the name Wells Next The Sea-so archaic sounding. I have been there and seem to remember I liked it. Have you been to Burton Overy Staithe? Another strange name-great swimming and quiet but a long way from a loo!
Happy new year to you and your family Ros!
