Bank Holiday's, Wonderful Days and Low Carb Ice Cream !

Did you know that Bank Holiday's in the UK date back to 1871,
read more about that here

We've recently had a three day Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK and for most the weather was good, but as well as the Bank Holiday it's also been a week off school for many UK schools.

These two grandchildren spent some wonderful days
including a visit to Lulworth Cove 


yes, looking at a lovely view of the path and Cove
which they had fun walking/climbing down carefully!


Durdle Door (sometimes written Durdle Dor) a natural limestone arch near Lulworth
 

and there is always time for fun at the park
bless them ...


Of course it's always nice to enjoy some ice cream,


Blueberry Ice Cream Delight
it's low carb, see more here

All the best Jan

Your grandchildren look to be enjoying themselves. I've always wanted to visit Dorset but it's somewhere we haven't been yet. Yum, that ice-cream looks delicious.

Looks like a great time topped off with ice cream.
What an interesting natural rock formation that is. Way Cool.

Those bank holidays, or long weekends, as we call them in Canada, are most welcome respites from everyday life. Durdle Dor looks like a wonderful place to explore with your grandchildren. They look very happy to be out and about with you.

We still refer to public holidays as Bank Holidays too.
And it looked as if yours was WONDERFUL.

What beautiful photos and lovely memories you are creating with those grandchildren. It must have been a fun three days. I asked several British friends a couple of years ago about Bank Holidays. Nice to read their replies were spot on with those of Wikipedia.

Looks like the end to a perfect weekend included a very sweet treat, too.

I always wondered about the origin of the Bank Holiday. The beautiful scenery must have added to the joy of the long weekend. How wonderful to enjoy with the grands. Thanks for sharing your special time. ♥

Looks like a lot of fun :-) And the ice cream looks delicious (sadly temps down in the low 20s over here).

Phil Slade said...

Lulworth Cove does look very lovely and inviting. Even more so with an ice cream in the hand. I think I need to go, if only to say I've been to Durdle Door.

Lisa said...

Lovely photos of your cute little grandchildren. How sweet the photo of them sat on the slide!
Hope the school break was a good one all round.
