Welcome to my newest blog. What is a kimberline you ask? Well where I live in Portland, Dorset, it is a nickname given to newcomers to the Island. Yes Portland is an Island seperated from Weymouth by a causeway. Its part of the Jurassic coast and I love living here. I will be posting lots of different things I hope you enjoy visiting here. Hugs Sara

our first wedding anniversary

Wow, has it really been a year since our wedding?  Its gone so quickly.  Rob booked the week off work and we are having a fabulous time.  We decided to stay at home and go for days out.  On the Sunday, the actual anniversary we had booked a table at a delightful place called Morton Tea Rooms.  In the 1900's it used to be a school house.  The weather was shockingly dreadful but we had fun in the Landrover splashing puddles and the meal was fabulous. 

 Then on the Monday, we went to a picknic spot we both love called Buckham Down.  It used to be a rubbish dump, look at it now.

 Then on Tuesday we went to my favourite of all places Cannoteign Falls near Bovey Tracy in Devon.  We saw Three gorgeous black swans.  It boasts the highest waterfall in England, and it is very impressive.  I didnt make it to the top but I gave it a good go and gave in gracefully.  I left an offering of some crystals in the waterfall and immediately afterwards I saw a yellow pied wagtail which I hadnt seen before and then we found a swallows nest with mum settling in for the afternoon.

The funniest thing happened yesterday.  Mum had brought some fruit trees from Ebay and as I helped her open the tall boxes they had come in I saw something moving. I was stunned beyond belief to find it was a Toad.  I shrieked as it hopped out and went oh my god a toad, then mum shrieked as it hopped in the hallway and said catch it quick.  We did catch it and put it in our pond with the other toads and frogs already there.  The poor thing had been in the box all the way from Norfolk no wonder it was struggling to get out.

GORGEOUS and WONDERFUL post! Lovely scenery.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to both of you, and Kudos to the Hubs for being romantic enough to take time off to celebrate with you! (Mine wouldn't, but then again we are going on 26 years, LOL)

The toad I am sure had a much different tale to tell his new friends in your pond, then the funny tale you told us! LOL

I love reading your blog Sara, and seeing what lovely photos you have to share. Continue to enjoy your anniversary week. Additionally please wish your Mom great luck with her fruit trees, and in case she doesn't know, they may not produce fruit for up to the third year til they acclimate to the new soil etc. (usually never the first year)
love n hugs,
